It can be difficult when they don't cooperate, but I fear that you are gonna have to go with something stronger than baby wipes. I use Malacetic wipes because Tank's face stays wet, too and these wipes have medicine to hep with yeast and bacteria. Although they don't smell like medicine, but have a fruity scent instead, my boy is not a fan of face washing. He reminds me of a little kid, twisting and turning his head and hating it. LOL, but he doesnt mind his other parts getting washed and he REALLY likes the treats that are always given when done. Have you tried rewarding after cleaning?
