Cloth wipes

Is it ok to just use water on the cloth wipes?

Re: Cloth wipes

Many people do and prefer them that way!
I like to have a container of ready to use cloth ones with a bit of a homemade solution on them...this way they seem to stay stain free and give a little bit better of a cleanse on my babies bum...also since I use essential oils in it, it seems to keep away and yeast problems!

Re: Cloth wipes

I normally use water now, but I used to have a spray bottle (that is super cheap and broke on me) where I had a couple drops of baby soap and the rest filled with water.

I have a large spray bottle and I do exactly that. Put a couple drops of soap and then fill the rest with water. We have a wipes warmer that I'd like to use too, but DH keeps disposables in it as it's his preferred wipe.

Re: Cloth wipes

I have a wipes warmer and usually just wet the wipes with water before putting them in. I have wipes bits, and they make a nice-smelling solution but water works just as well for me.

Re: Cloth wipes

I keep my wipes dry in an old huggie wipe container.. I jsut wet 2-3 at the sink I also have some CJ spritz and sometimes I just spray the wet wipes a bit for a little extra.

Re: Cloth wipes

I used to, and I have when I'm too lazy to make solution, but I don't feel it's the best solution overall (thus the reason I developed my wipes cubes.) I didn't feel like plain water cleaned as well, and it didn't feel as grabby as a soap solution. But the main thing, I think, is that if there are any skin breaks or lesions/rash, that you wash their bum with soap after every poop change to avoid infection, whether that's in a wipe solution or done separately in a tub.

I wet at the sink at each change. Over the past several years I have tried solutions and spray bottles and such, but nothing seems to work as well to me as plain old warm water at the tap.
