A guide to sourcing a wet wipes supplier for your business

If your business is in need of a reliable supply of wet wipes, you may be wondering how to go about sourcing a supplier. You want to find a wet wipes supplier who meets your exact requirements both in terms of the product and the logistics involved in getting them delivered when you need them.

To help you in your search, we’ve shared a step-by-step guide to sourcing a wet wipes supplier for your business, and how the Uniwipe team can help…

Hand & Surface wipes in office

1. Be clear on what you need wet wipes for

Before you rush into a purchase decision, it’s important that you take the time to consider what your wet wipe needs are so you can find a supplier that will have the right product for your business.

If you operate within the medical industry, you may need wipes which have been tested against particular standards to ensure health and safety, whereas if you work in an office environment, it would be better to choose wet wipes that are effective at keeping surfaces clean but not necessarily to a clinical degree.

At Uniwipe, our Clinical Midi-Wipes have been tested to a number of EN standards, which shows that the wipes are suitable to use in areas such as hospital wards, care homes and dentist surgeries where risk of infection is high. However, our Midi-Wipe Hand & Surface or Midi-Wipe Multipurpose are ideal for offices and everyday use to keep surfaces clean. 

Although we offer a range of wet wipes for different settings, alternative suppliers may differ in their product offering, so being clear on what your business needs wet wipes for and the specific purpose they will serve helps to narrow down your search and get the product that is best suited for your requirements.


2. Decide how many wet wipes you need

Similar to considering what you need wet wipes for, it’s also important to know how many you will need when sourcing a new supplier. You may find the perfect wet wipes which are fit for purpose, however, if you’re a small business and your chosen supplier has a high minimum order volume, you may need to rethink your decision. Or perhaps you work for a large company or rely on high quantities of wet wipes and therefore need to buy wet wipes in bulk

As a UK manufacturer, we can deliver bulk supplies of high quality wet wipes quickly and efficiently, but with the option to keep your order stored at our facilities so you can get a palette delivered as and when required, offering you the best of both worlds. Our minimum order quantities are also much lower than other companies, which is ideal if you’re part of a small or medium-sized business in search of the perfect wet wipes.

3. Research wet wipe suppliers

Now that you’ve clarified what kind of wet wipes you need and how many, you can start to shop around and find suppliers. Keep your requirements in mind as you search for wet wipe suppliers so you can quickly rule out any that won’t be suitable for your business.

Although it may be tempting to rush this stage and pick the first supplier you come across, it’s important that you take all options into account so you get the right wet wipes for your company’s requirements. Take a look at customer reviews, product information and handy blog posts like this one so you know exactly what you would be getting from your prospective supplier.

4. Get in touch with your chosen wet wipe suppliers

Once you’ve whittled down your search, it’s time to get in touch with your chosen supplier(s) and ask the all important questions on how to buy. Having done your research and carefully considered your wet wipe requirements, this stage should be pretty easy, as you’ll either know exactly what you’re looking for or have a list of questions on what you need to know from the supplier.
