Bio Baby

The Appliance Of Baby

Tesco, Aldi, Waitrose, Lidl, Asda baby wipes compared to Pampers and Huggies – one ‘smelt disgusting’ – Laura Nightingale

It’s fair to say, parents of babies and young children get through packs of baby wipes like they are going out of fashion.

Mums and dads can pick up a supply of Pampers and Huggies from most supermarkets, but SurreyLive wanted to find out if the own brand options were just as good.

I was tasked to rate baby wipes from some of the UK’s leading supermarkets and compare them to the famous names.

The five shops I went to were Tesco, Aldi, Waitrose, Lidl and Asda, and there was one pack in particular I didn’t enjoy opening.

Seventh place – Asda

These wipes smelt disgusting. The stench was so overpowering I wouldn’t be able to use them again.

They were also on the thin side and could easily tear.

Price: 54p

Number of wipes in pack: 64

Sixth place – Tesco Fred & Flo

These wipes had a horrible texture compared to all of the others and they felt a bit dry too.

Price: 65p

Number of wipes in pack: 60

Fifth place – Aldi Mamia sensitive

These may have been among the cheapest of the wipes I tried, but they felt dry so they wouldn’t clean well.

Price: 49p

Number of wipes in pack: 64

Fourth place – Lidl

Lidl’s offering was much better. They looked bigger and were wetter, making them good value overall.

Price: 49p

Number of wipes in pack: 64

Third place – Pampers

I had high expectations for these and while they did not disappoint, they were the most expensive and contained fewer wipes in each pack.

However, they were very moist and felt the softest out of the bunch I tried.

Price: 85p

Number of wipes in pack: 52

Second place – Waitrose

With a mighty 80 wipes in each pack, these wipes were great value for money and felt super soft.

They felt nice and thick too and didn’t tear easily.

Price: 75p

Number of wipes in pack: 80

WINNER – Huggies

But it was Huggies that came out on top in my opinion.

They stood out among the others not only because they were the only ones with a cute pattern on them, but because they were really strong. They were moist too.

Price: 79p

Number of wipes in pack: 56
