Default baby wipes for cleaning guns???

for any glock armorers on here (or any other equally qualified person), is it recommended to use baby wipes for cleaning a glock (or other gun)? i saw a video on youtube yesterday of a guy stating that a glock armorer instructed him to use baby wipes to clean and Tetra Gun Grease to lube. can anyone speak to whether or not this is good or not?

My nephew was in Afghanistan in the Marine Corp and he swore by baby wipes.
He even asked us to send him boxes of them for him to share

mostly to clean his weapon, but some for "other" uses

well, if its good enough for a marine to clean all kinds of desert gunk out of his M16, then it must work

Not a glock armorer, but I have been using rubbing alcohol wipes for initial clean and degrease for a long time.

I clean with CLP or Frog Lube but if you are talking about just a wipe down I use a silicon cloth
