Re: Cloth Wipes

Tshirts are a great idea! Has anyone had any luck cutting up flannel receiving blankets to make wipes?

I'm sure it would work fine but you would need to hem or serge them so they don't fray. T- shirts don't fray so they are no-sew. Some of ours are flannel on one side and terry on the other and those are nice for bigger jobs.

Just did this. Made them double sided (blanket one side, cheap flannel from hobby lobby on the other) and sewed them together. I only got through a half dozen though -.-

Yup I have done several they are really soft if you use old blankets, new ones need a few washings.

Re: Cloth Wipes

I'm trying to avoid hauling out my sewing machine. I'll cut one of my well-loved blankets up with pinking shears and give it a try.

Re: Cloth Wipes

I prefer Sweetbottomsbaby Boutique brand wipes. I have maybe 40 wipes...? You really can't have too many though. I wash them with the diapers.

Sadly, the pinked edges are fraying after one trip through the wash.

Re: Cloth Wipes

I have 30, and I use Eli's Wipe-Es sherpa/velour wipes (made by user "katedanzer" here on DS). LOVE them! I think they are the best wipes ever, and they will definitely last me through my next baby (due in May) and beyond. Such amazing quality!

For solution, I fill my Prince Lionheart Wipies wipe warmer with water and do a squirt of liquid Dr. Bronner's or drop in a cloth wipe soap cube (I got them from a friend... who got them from a WAHM). The spray method did not work for me, and I LOVE just dipping in my wipe and wringing it out. Warm and easy. LOL.

As for the Search, you have to go to "Advanced Search" or it doesn't work...

Re: Cloth Wipes

I use organic bamboo terry wipes, love them!!! They clean very well, I have about 30 of them and use just plane water. I keep them in a wipe warmer (who knew I would need one ) I actually made them from a fabric bought on etsy , cost me about 12$, so not bad at all. And they wash beautifully with dipes and no stains on them at all!
