Walmart has them too!
Do they really? I've never seen one there, and I've looked. But maybe I'm not looking hard enough... might try some of the others around here. Some have better selections than others it seems.

Re: Wipes questions... what do you like?

I love using my flannel/terrycloth wipes, I have a few flannel/velour but dont care for the feel of the velour so much when its wet.
As far as solution right now jsut warm water becuase I havent washed out the warmer yet. I used to and will go back to making my own solution and putting it inthe wipe wamer, I just put a squirt o baby wash, usually lavendar scented, a few drops tea tree oil and a small squirt baby oil in an old wipes container, fill with hot water and then pour in wipe warmer. I tried the london frogg ones and they smelled great but after a while I realized they were causing my son a rash after using them.

Re: Wipes questions... what do you like?

i didn't think you should use tea tree oil a lot on the skin of kids and babies? i don't remember why, but it isnt good for them when it gets soaked into their skin. i know you are (those that are using it) only using 2-3 drops with a lot of other stuff, but still. i was told not to.
anyone else heard of this?


what does the tea tree oil do?

Re: Wipes questions... what do you like?

What materials do you like your wipes to be? We love Velour/Flannel, Flannel/Flannel, and Flannel/sherap

Where do you get them? Most of mine have been free wahm sampes!

Do you use a solution? If yes, what kind? We make our own I use warm water, baby wash, TTO BUT i also like to add burt's bee's apricot oil when I have it

Do you use a warmer, spray bottle, sink, other to get them ready for use?
We use a spray bottle, as well as an old huggies plastic pop top container where I can presoak them all in the solution

what does the tea tree oil do?
Tea tree oil used regularly on skin in concentrations of less than 4% have actually been shown to facilitate antibiotic resistance in staph. Concentrations of less than 4% tee trea oil should not be used regularly on skin [as the MRSA can adapt and survive].

That's from Wikipedia.
