Try as we might, it can be an immense challenge to keep our dogs clean! Even with regular baths, our fur babies are extremely talented at finding ways to get themselves muddy, dirty and smelly all over again. And even when they haven’t done anything particularly dirtying, they can still sometimes emit an odor. Deodorizing wipes can help keep this issue under control by effectively cleaning your pup’s fur and getting rid of odors until it’s time for their next bath.
Animal expert, Dr. Jarett Gilpin remarked, “Picking out deodorizing wipes isn’t so much about the scent as it is its other effects. The best wipes should help create a glossier coat and actually remove some of the dirt from your dog’s fur.”

These wipes come in two fragrance options and are tailored toward freshening up ruddy coats. They’re made from all-natural, hypoallergenic ingredients and come in portable packaging.
Pros and cons
We tried out these wipes on our dogs and found saw amazing results! After testing it out on pets of various hair lengths, we noticed they not only smelled “fresher,” but the remaining odors were gone. Their coats felt much softer than before we’d wiped them down. The scent left behind is light and not irritating. Some of our testers with larger hands had trouble getting a new wipe from the packaging, however.

Glandex Pet Wipes, Cleansing & Deodorizing Anal Gland Hygienic Wipes for Dogs & Cats with Vitamin E, Skin Conditioners and Aloe
No matter the age of your pet, you can make it easier to keep them clean with the help of these wipes from Glandex, which are specifically designed to freshen anal glands and other pet bodily parts.
Pros and cons
When we first opened up these wipes, we couldn’t help but notice how soft they were to the touch. They have a plush kind of feel, very similar to what you’d want from a regular baby wipe. Our pet testers seemed to enjoy the feel of these wipes too. They also proved to be quite thorough, wiping away any leftover muck from our pet testers’ anal glands and leaving them looking (and smelling) much cleaner. The fragrance they left behind was pleasant, but not overbearing. However, there are a few packaging issues. Namely, it was hard for us to remove wipes from the package as needed. Also, a small group of our pet testers experienced skin irritation from the fragrance ingredients.
Designed to Be Allergen-Free
Deodorizing Hypoallergenic Pet Wipes with Fragrance Free Natural Organic and Antibacterial for Cleaning Face Butt Eyes Ears Paws Teeth 100ct per Pack
These wipes from BIGA are made from purely natural ingredients and are meant to hold up to heavy-duty wiping. They’re large enough to work on pets of all sizes and come in portable packaging.
Pros and cons
We think one of the biggest draws for these particular wipes will be that they are unscented. This means no fragrances will be left behind, and there’s a lessened chance of your pet’s sensitive skin being irritated by its ingredients. While these wipes are thin, they’re strong enough to hold up to regular use. However, they aren’t very wet, so we struggled to clean up bigger messes from our pets’ fur and paws, such as mud.
