Reusable Wipes - wipe away single use

Reusable Wipes - wipe away single use

Reusable Wipes  - everything you need to know to say goodbye to single use. 

Reusable wipes are not a new phenomenon - we have used terry cotton face cloths and dish cloths everyday, so making the move to reusable baby wipes makes a lot of sense. 

Unlike cloth nappies reusable cloth wipes are not designed to soak up pee so they don't have very much absorbency. This makes them super quick to dry for fast laundry turn around.

They are an effective cleaning cloth, sturdy and gentle, they won't fall apart in your hand or you won't accidentally poke your finger through mid clean. 

Cloth wipes are available in a variety of materials and sizes. 

They can be used for cleaning bums, faces and hands. Simple wet enough in the morning to do for the day - you will generally only need one wipe per nappy change. 

Storing Cloth Wipes

Storing cloth wipes has never been easier, when at home, using a small lunchbox is ideal. We love the small twist lock and seal boxes and keep one with wet wipes upstairs, downstairs and a spare for sending in the nappy bag to childminder. 

When out and about you can use a small wet bag to bring enough wipes for 1-2 changes or any messy hands.

Washing Cloth Wipes

If using cloth nappies then washing wipes is simple - just throw them into your nappy storage bag or pail and wash them with your nappies as usual. If you are not using cloth nappies, wash on 40 or max 60 degrees with no fabric softener and line dry. 

Drying Tip: We like to dry our wipes on a sunny windowsill indoors - they dry fast and its quicker to spread them out than peg them. 

What other cloth parents have to say:

"Love these ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I never planned to use reusable wipes but it started getting annoying using disposables while using cloth nappies because you couldn't just wrap the wipes up with your nappies and throw them in the wet bag so I decided to give them a go and it was the best switch ever. My partner could use up to 6 disposable wipes in one nappy change now he only needs 1. They're really thick and good quality. Highly recommend."
