    Perfectly Fulfilled My Surgical Need

    Cons:
    After being bedridden for 136 days, to prepare for a long awaited surgery these cleansing clothes fulfilled the requirement for pre-surgery antibacterial cleansing of my body. Upon receiving the pre-surgery kit containing antibacterial body wash I needed an alternative due to my ability to bathe only by sponge bath. Following my sponge bath in using these cloths I could implement the required antibacterial bathing. In addition, my interaction with Stryker was excellently exceptional. Great product from a great company!

    Cons:
    • Expensive but worth the money.
    I am a dialysis patient with a permacath. I use the Sage 2% Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) Cloths prior to receiving dialysis to reduce any bacteria that might cause infection. I have also used Sage wipes prior to having surgery. The Sage wipes are an excellent product, and I highly recommend them.

    I had recent surgery and was not allowed to bathe. My infectious disease physician recommended I use these wipes to cleanse my body and to ward off infection. So far, so good. These wipes being packaged as two to a package assures that they stay germ free. They are very moist, but not wet; very thick, and the packaged two are large, soft and great for cleansing your body.
