them. On the playa. Car camping. Road trips. They're amazingly useful things for removing the body paint, quick sponge baths, cleaning the playafied toes before someone massages moisturizer into them, etc. I have suspected that they were plastic based and shouldn't be burned, but never had my suspicions confirmed. Until today when I called Kimberly-Clark's consumer line. (*note* this does not necessarily speak for other brands) Their Huggies brand baby wipes are made of wood fiber on a polypropylene base. Which means they don't completely decompose and I'll be switching to their Cottonelle line of 'intimate' cleaning cloths. Fully wood fiber based. yay!
