Re: share your cloth wipe procedure, please :)

Here's what I do:

I use a Huggies wipes container, and I put about 2 dozen wipes in there. I boil some water (tap water), add my wipes solution and pour it over my wipes. I always let them cool a bit before I shut the lid so that it doesn't get all condensated in the tub. I wash ALL the wet wipes on diaper laundry day, whether or not I've used them. That way I only have them wet for 2 days and they are always fresh.

I haven't had a problem yet, and I LOVE them!!!

Re: share your cloth wipe procedure, please :)

I have my wipes dry and filled an old sposie container with water, a few drops of baby shampoo and a few drops of TTO. When I need to use a wipe, I just dip it in there to get it wet. I plan to change the solution once a day. I'd like to get a wipes warmer so the water stays warm.

I have a wipe warmer that I fill with hot distilled water and drop a wipe solution cube in it...The water stays warm with it being pluged in and the wipes are in a stack next to it I just dunk and squeeze when needed.

I change the water every 3 days...on diaper washing day...never a problem.
I use a wipe solution with TTO in it.

Do you boil your water before you make your baby bits solution? I use Washy Wafers. I have an old Huggies box, fill it with wipes, boil water, put a washy wafer and a squirt of Vit E oil and a drop or two of lavendar oil in a measuring cup, pour boiling water over that, let it cool a bit, then pour over the wipes. This stays fresh for up to a week, then I wash them all (used or not) and start over.

Re: share your cloth wipe procedure, please :)

Still trying to perfect my "wipes" routine, but here's what I'm doing right now: in the morning, I dip about 5-7 wipes in my wipes solution (usually Baby Bits with double the water amount.) I store the wet ones in a disposable travel wipes container. I use those throughout the day, wetting more and storing them as needed. If I have any leftover at the end of a day, I'm sure to use those first thing the next day, then I start over. This way I have wet wipes handy but don't get the musty smell from having 2-3 day old wet wipes lying around.

Re: share your cloth wipe procedure, please :)

aha! i like the soapy wipes in the dryer idea....you're a genius!

still thinking i'd like to use my wipe warmer though.....to the mama who's getting ready to get one - my solution does not get very warm in there with no wipes in it.....that's one of my problems. maybe there are brands that do a better job of it than others.
