If that's the reason people mutilate their babies, they are misinformed about how to care for an intact boy. You just wipe off the exterior of the foreskin and move along! It's when the baby has AN OPEN WOUND SOAKING IN EXCREMENT that the hygiene is more complicated!!
That said, my impression is that parents of mutilated boys generally follow doctors' instructions about applying petroleum jelly to the wound until it is healed, but after that they barely clean the penis at all unless it has visible poop on it. Many parents I've seen changing diapers, for babies of either sex, don't even use a wipe if it's a wet diaper, and if it's a dirty diaper they wipe off the anal area and buttocks but ignore the genitals unless they can see poop there. Seems disgusting to me--if I had wet my pants, I would rinse the whole area, so that's what I do for my baby, with plain water on a washcloth.
