Cloth wipes?
 
What are some materials I could use to make my own wipes? Also what are some good recipes for the solution? I want to start using cloth wipes but need to know the ins & out any help welcome :)

Flannel and/or terry are good. No solution necessary really. For the most part we use warm water. After poops if something else is needed or out of the house a solution of water, a little Dr. Bronner's Baby Mild and a little coconut oil works really well for us.

i made my wipes out of flannel. i didn't hem the edges, just zigzag stitch around the edge. they frayed for a bit and i just cut the loose strings. they don't fray anymore. it was worth it to me to do it that way because it saved so much time on sewing.

i don't make a solution. i just use water. i haven't had the time to try making any. (i have 18m old twins) but here is a website that has instructions. (zany-zebra.com)

I'm making my own cloth wipes this weekend for the first time! I plan on making mine out of my DS receiving blankets that we never use :)

I plan on using flannel on one side and terry cloth on the other.

The only advise I have is that if you make your own solution, make sure it's compatible to wash with your cloth diapers! i made that mistake when I first CDed my son.

I also made some wipes out of old receiving blankets. Worked fine. Many people just use baby wash cloths too.
