Thanks everyone for the compliments! 2LaurenA actually..they are easier than you would think...to clean the wrinkles. I only have to clean his nose rope wrinkle 2x a week...the rest of his wrinkles I don't clean. I don't ever wash his face with soap and water. just a very occasional aloe wipe.Sometimes I put desitin on his nose rope, besides the duoxo pads.. other than that...nothing. i guess I'm lucky...so far!
