Re: Cloth Wipes

Thirsties fab wipes are AWESOME! I bought some as a splurge and now use nothing else! In the early days I used baby washcloths when I ran out of wipes, but I was always glad when laundry was done and I could use the fab wipes again! I use plain water with them.

Re: Cloth Wipes

I have about 40 handmade ones. I just bought flannel and towel material, turned and topstiched. They are great, though a little thick for tiny baby. For diaper bag we used the thin washcloths, they take up less space and fit in a wipes container. I have another 10 or so of those.

Re: Cloth Wipes

We have Eli's right now and I love how they are precisely the same shape! We've done a lot of different kinds of fabrics, but are back to the stand-by of flannel/velour.

Re: Cloth Wipes

I have tried lots of different brands, and love GMD two sided wipes the best! Love them! Cloth wipes are so much better than disposables. They are much more efficient at getting the job done!

Re: Cloth Wipes

I cut up old tee shirts also.
Boil 2 1/2 cups water with a spoon of coconut oil, remove from heat and add a tsp dr bronners and a drop or two of tea tree oil and stir. Pour it over an old container full of tee shirt wipes. They stay fresh for well over a week.

Re: Cloth Wipes

I made mine from a Goodwill flannel sheet and second hand flannel receiving blankets. I cut them into 7 inch squares and serged around the edges. They are 2 ply and we love them.
