Following @Malevolent recomendations, almost all the days I use the AH-D9200s, after use them, I clean the headband and earpads first with a baby towel (the ones I use with my little daughter, with no alcohol) and afterthat, I use a kleenex to remove the wet from the earpads and the headband. He told me that he does that with all his headphones, and he has many
It's a little cumbersome, but I hope my headphones won't peel with time.
FWIW, my anecdote on previous page was w/ non-alcoholic wipes (which I used only once). I imagine this is why manufacturers seem to usually recommend just dry wiping products with non-scratching soft or microfibre cloth- at the most mild soap & water on certain surfaces (maybe the baby wipes you use fit this description, IDK). Occasional leather conditioning like other comments mention seems relatively safe too (though would be very careful to avoid getting any into foam padding)
Perhaps just a gentle quick wipedown works well, though IMO daily cleaning seems like it might cause more wear than actually using the headphones (although maybe in the case of certain skin sensitivities or hair product use this is unavoidable).
