I found a brand of Corn free hand wipes. They are made of 100% pulp fibre and you just add a little water to make a very effective hand wipe. No perfume or fragrances.

They are called Wysi Wipe.

I have been using these wipes at least once a month for several months with zero negative reactions to them.

Would these wipes be good for you? They are available at Walmart for $2.64 for 88 wipes. Here are the ingredients:

aqua, propylene glycol, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tocopheryl, acetate, peg-75 lanolin, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, polysorbate 20, citirc acid, disodium phosphate, disodium edta, 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate

These wipes would not be safe for someone with a corn allergy. I'm not sure about all of the ingredients but the propylene glycol, polysorbate 20, and citric acid are definitely corny. I carry a small (leftover) bar of Neutrogena unscented soap in my purse and a clean facecloth for drying my hands if I go out. Some of the paper towels in public washrooms bother me (rash) but others don't. A lot of paper products (including toilet paper) are made from/with corn.
