Moist Towelette — Hand Sanitizer — Disinfectant -- Face Masks

Post by jfko6 » Thu Oct 02, 2008 5:22 pm

Another ubiquitous MRE component the moist towelette from National Towelette Company http://www.towelettes.com/index.asp ranks high. Extracted from the accessory pouch in the 2004 menu; this is both useful for its size and soapy consistency. It's a good formula and designed to stay moist in extreme conditions. More information can be found on the companies website. Their products were initially designed for the military and holds up well.

Thanks for the quick review. You know, this is one of those things that I see in every MRE but I almost never open up and try. I'll have to check out the next one I run into.

I keep one in my wallet. Naturally useful for cleaning hands they are also
useful for cleaning minor cuts and abrasions.

Hi guys,

here is a photo with different MRE „Moist Towelette“ (wrapper) types from my collection at a glance:

I always had a couple of them in my car and every jacket pocket, they can be used in many different ways.

I agree the uses for these little towelettes are only limited to your imagination. When I have them I keep a few in my car also; one of the most useful places. I even used some to clean the dash at least the one I have pictured works like a charm for that purpose. But they are not all the same. Different formulas and sizes will yield different results.

I like the size of the one I imaged. With that item included in your MRE you get a real bang for your buck.

This is something useful that could be added to the Buy/Sell/Trade forum.
They're that useful.

the only problem i have found with them is they stink. at least the ones from the heat stressed 04 cases did. i have not tried the other ones.

I never came across of bad smelling wet nap. At worst they would dry up.
