Using Baby Wipes on Shabbat

Using Baby Wipes on Shabbat
Day: Friday
Date: November 21, 2014
Parshat: Tolidot
Yalkut Yosef: 320

In memory of Ettel bat Harav Chaim Shalom.

One may clean a baby on Shabbat using disposable non cloth baby wipes as long as they are pre-separated and by pulling them out of the container he will not cause them to rip apart. Ideally he should use the ones at the top of the container, as those are usually the least moist and are therefore least likely to have liquid squeezed out of them. Likewise one who uses moistened toilet paper on Shabbat has what to rely on as long as it used is gently enough that no water gets squeezed out.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
