Cloth Wipes

How many of you use cloth wipes in addition to cloth diapers? If you do, where did you get them or did you make them? If you DIY, what fabric did you use and how did you make them?

No disposable wipes for us. I've tried prince lion heart, osocozy and grovia wipes. I actually prefer the cheapo osocozy wipes. I don't like wipes that are as squishy as the grovia ones, and the prince lionheart wipes are expensive crapola IMO. I make my own wipe solution and keep it in squirt bottles.

Re: Cloth Wipes

I made some from old receiving blankets and a really worn but soft towel. I bought some that are 2 ply flannel. I have some baby wash cothes also that I use. All work great.

I wet a stack with just water and keep in an old sposie wipes container.

I do keep a package of sposie wipes in the diaper bag along with cloth and a package of sposie wipes in the van.

I made some out of old receiving blankets and baby wash cloths. I sewed them together, flipped right side out and then stitched around the edges. I also have grovia and thirsties wipes and some single layer flannel ones. I keep my wipes pre-wet in a wipe warmer and find I like the squishier ones better (homemade, grovia, thirsties). The single layer ones stick together when folded and wet and are just annoying when trying to use with one hand. I use the single layer ones dry, pop up style in an old wipe container to dry off my sons booty.

Re: Cloth Wipes

I haven't bought any, but plan on making some. I haven't decided what materials I am going to use, but will probably end up using flannel.

I bought mine from a coop, but I probably could have made them myself. They're a single layer of cotton Sherpa, cut to size, no sewn edges.

Ours are just old receiving blankets (flannel) that I edged with a zigzag stitch. Single ply

Mine are DHs old white t-shirts. They are not cute but work and are easy to replace... No edging needed! (:

I bought a dozen flannel wipes from cotton babies, and then when I started getting really into sewing I used my flannel scraps to make t&t 2 ply wipes.

Re: Cloth Wipes

I love Quilter's Nappies on Hyena Cart-specifically the flannel/Sherpa wipes. But I also have hemp wipes and target baby washcloths. I make my own solution with earth mama angel baby lotion and soap.
