Default Dry-cleaning a cat recovering from surgery?

Mephisto is recovering from urethroplasty and is wearing a collar for
another week. I've been brushing him regularly, but I need to give him a
dry bath to get rid of the smell of urine. I'd like to avoid using
commercial foam products because of their heavy perfumes, and I don't want
to get the cat wet because of his still-healing surgery wound.

Are there household products that I can use to make a sort of kitty dry-
cleaning product?

I have used those flushable wipes sold alongside diapers. I figure a
product that is mild enough for a baby's ass probably won't cause
problems for a cat.

Some of those wipes are toxic for cats, there was a thread in here last
February (If you search for "Toxic baby wipes" you'll find it). The
problem is that very few babies lick their backsides whereas cats do
