Cloth wipes

I have been wetting my cloth wipes with water and putting them in the wipe warmer but I can only put 2 days in or they start the smell. I don't have time to do this every 2 days. I'm not crazy about using a spray bottle bc they always break or leak.
How do you use your cloth wipes?

I grab what I need before putting baby on the table and wet on the faucet.

Re: Cloth wipes

Spray bottle and wet either wipe or bottom as I go. I've been using that method for almost 7 years and have never had an issue with bottle leaking or breaking.

I use Super Stars from Etsy and distilled water so it lasts without any funky stuff growing in it.

Re: Cloth wipes

After 5 years of using cloth wipes this is why I just started buying disposable wipes, I just can't do it anymore and it seems so silly but I just never found a way to do it that I liked. I tried every way there is and It was always a hassle and made messy changes more difficult so I just gave up lol.

Re: Cloth wipes

I leave my cloth wipes in a basket in the bathroom. I always know when a diaper is soiled, so I grab a few and run them under warm water before changing the diaper. It doesn't take any extra time, the wipes are always warm, and it doesn't cost me any extra because the wipes are homemade.
On the go, I always have a bottle of room temperature water in the van just in case we have to do an in the car change. Otherwise, I just use tap water from the bathroom before using the changing facilities.

Re: Cloth wipes

You shouldn't leave wet wipes in the warmer more than two days anyway b/c of bacterial growth. I get lazy so I make my diaper solution and add it to about two days worth of wipes in the warmer and fill up my spray bottle with the rest. Once those are gone I use the spray bottle for the rest of the week and wet as I go. I was using just warm tap water and wetting what I needed at each change, but since starting solids ds has needed a little more than water to clean him up.

Re: Cloth wipes

Yeah, I can't use a wipes warmer because I'd never remember to change the solution. Ain't nobody got time for that! So I use a little spray bottle with a wipes cube and water in it. In the 5 years we've used cloth wipes, the bottles haven't leaked or broken too much. Maybe just once or twice...and they're not treated gently!
