Re: Cloth wipes?

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.

Re: Cloth wipes?

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

Re: Cloth wipes?

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