The monistat should work fine. We will clean ours face with baby wipes, and in the nose rope we put some witch hazel on the baby wipe and wring it out then clean the nose rope. The witch hazel is an ex-stringent and drys well. The baby wipes by themselves will not dry inside a fold. I have heard of some horror stories of peeps taking their pets there. I think it just depends on who they have working there.
