Re: Can we talk about wipes warmers?

I got the Warmies Wipes Warmer recently & love it! I don't fill it up, so I change it out every other day. No mold issues or issues with burning wipes/stink. I have had issues with some of my wahm wipes bleeding & that's putting marks on the pad, but those were bleeding prior to using the warmer. I haven't had any issues I was in fear of having & I really love it! Here's what I do:

I put 1 1/2 to 2 cups of distilled water in a mug & microwave the water for about 3 minutes. I add a bit of Dawn, a few drops of tea tree oil, & either a few drops of Homestead Baby or Lusa's organic wipe solution. Lusa's has a strong smell.

I put my wipes in a mixing bowl, pour the water on top, mix them so they're all wet, and roll them up into the wipe warmer. I do put a wipe I don't like flat on the bottom in case I do get a burnt wipe.

This has worked very well! It takes about 5 minutes to do all of this!

I also make sure I rinse out the pad while my water is heating in the microwave.

Re: Can we talk about wipes warmers?

I have the Prince Lionheart warmer & have been using it for about a year. I have a variety of "kinds" of wipes...some CB flannel, some cheap baby washcloths, some flannel/sherpa wipes, & some flannel/terry wipes. I do not use the pillow, have not used it for most of the time we've had the warmer. I fold the wipes in half (for storage); when I need them, I wet them in the sink w/ warm water & put them in the warmer like that. I don't leave water sitting in the warmer, & don't use a solution. I put maybe 6 wipes in the warmer at a time (I really just grab a small stack) & fill the warmer as many times a day as necessary. Sometimes it's only once (weekdays, when DD is at the sitter's), sometimes more (when we're home all day on the weekend). The only time it got yucky was when DP took DD out of town & I forgot there were wipes in there. A little wipe out w/ witch hazel took care of that. GL!
