I mean, seriously, what's the point of embossing something whose main function is going to be wiping up poo?

I agree. Is mad.

Maybe the embossing gives more friction for very dirty bottoms?

God know! Maybe it traps the poo? I know something though the Huggies Shea Butter ones are lovely. I could sit sniffing them all day....DP thinks I'm a bit strange <<<mmmmmm...sniff...mmm>>> grin

Personally, I wonder what the point of baby wipes arehmm, but that's just megrin.

<waves at FBG - are you having a better day today?>

WTWTW - I couldn't live without wipes! What do you use ? A flannel? I use them for cleaning around the house too blush

I have a big box of flannels, cut up towels and washable wipes, which just get ran under the tap and used for bums, hands, faces and spills blushgrin.

<disclaimer> Not grown up bumsgrin, just dd, thought that could be mis-read......

WTWTA - if I was more organised I'd do that. I feel ecological guilt every time I use a disposable wipe/nappy. I think I may have killed approximately 4.7 polar bears. sad

<boak> used on bum, washed under the tap, used on face shock. You don't mean that, do you? grin

it is to enhance friction to try and emulate an old flannel, which make the world's best babywipes

I have sepearte ones for bums and faces

Feck noshock, hot machine wash in between.

I know lots do have seperate ones for bums and faces but I just can't see the point when they go through a hot wash.

Still, not looking for a repeat of the the whole arse/face flannel thinggrin.

I thank God for the little embossed designs.

It's the only way I can double-check that my dh hasn't cleaned dd's hands with Dettol wipes again hmm

well, after reading this read, I am now going to get a load of old flannels and use them on dd's bum.

Can't think why I didn't think of this before, after all I stick on a load of washing every day.
