I have friends that only drink white wine because they don’t want red wine stains on their teeth. For me, I often drink sips of water during and after I consume red wine, to keep me hydrated and also to prevent staining.
I’d seen Wine Wipes in a few wine shops but never purchased them so when I recently received samples to review I gave them a shot, over wine with a couple of gal pals. We tried them, as I instructed, before, during and after a nice bottle of red wine. This is what we thought:
Amanda: Well, it was funny watching Amanda look at the Wine Wipe and compare it to a Stridex Acne wipe…I hadn’t thought of that. That, along with using it at the table, did not really appeal to her.
But, going along with the rest of us in our experiment, she gave it a try. Amanda noted the light orange flavor that lingered for a bit, but was gone before her next sip of wine.
I think she’d like to try them again…when she’s had more wine. And she emailed me later to say, “When I got home I checked my teeth and didn’t have any wine stains so I think they worked pretty good!”
Claudia: The taste wasn’t intrusive and did not take away from the flavor of the wine or food we were having, and the compact was cute according to Claudia. However, she wasn’t entirely sure as to why we would need to use it, it felt awkward wiping her teeth and the mirror on the compact wasn’t really a mirror, but a reflective piece of foil. Then she found that her teeth and inner lips felt dry – reminiscent of going to the dentist when they place cotton swabs or gauze in your mouth.
Eve: I liked the idea that I could use these while drinking red wine and it wouldn’t affect the taste, so I was anxious to see that for myself. Especially as the “orange blossom flavor” reminded me of the orange solvent scent of Wine Away for other types of stains. (I stopped using Wine Away only because the strong scent lingered too long.)
I found the orange scent appealing and not overpowering in aroma or, luckily, flavor. I liked the compact as I don’t carry a toothbrush in my purse, and I could take this to the ladies room to use. I would have liked to see some wine on the wipe afterwards but there wasn’t a thing. I plan to use or share the rest of my samples, as I haven’t found anything like this on the market.

Wine Wipes by Borracha are infused with a proprietary blend of stain removing and teeth-protecting ingredients:
Baking Soda: Baking Soda effectively removes surface stains from your teeth and makes them appear whiter. It also neutralizes acids that can corrode enamel.
Glycerin: To protect from further red wine stains, glycerin coats teeth to keep your smile bright and white even through your second or third glass of red.
Orange Blossom: A flavor found naturally in red wine, the nearly tasteless orange blossom acts as an antibacterial palate cleanser and antiseptic.
Salt: Salt is a natural cleanser and antiseptic that helps remove stains and alkalinize the mouth to fight germs.
Hydrogen Peroxide: A real germ slayer, a small amount is included in the formula to help kill bacteria and viruses in your mouth while helping to whiten teeth.
Calcium: Known for strengthening teeth, calcium adheres to your teeth enamel and can help with re-mineralization, which is needed to keep teeth healthy and strong.
