What happens to semen in sperm on a baby wipe? ?

Is it still alive or is it dead once it hits the wipe?  Also does it become absorbed or does it also dry out? With consideration to the fact that not all baby wipes alcohol-free.

    Sperm are very sensitive. They die rather quickly outside the body

    Sperm can only live for a few minutes outside the body, especially if deprived of liquid semen in which to swim.

    Alcohol would kill sperm even quicker.

    it dies within seconds to few minutes.. now normally, a sperm can survive upto 6 hours outside, it is sustained by the ejaculation-fluid that is filled with nutrients.. once these nutrients are gone and the internal energy storage are depleted, a sperm can simply die from starvation..

    most baby-wipes contain some Surfactants that act like mild detergents.. they literally disrupt the cell-walls of a bacteria or the cell-wall of a sperm, like poking someone with thousands of knives all over the body.. strong detergents like floor-cleaners make the walls of a cell explode, but mild detergents in baby-wipes have the effect of breaking someone arms and legs, and breaking the teeth and jaw - worsening the starvation situation..
