Can you make your own reusable wipes? I looked on eBay and they seemed to be all made of fleece - is that the material most people would use? I was thinking of buying a cheap primark throw (I am never near a material only shop, but primark is right next to my work) and chopping it up- would that work? Could I use some of it for wipes and chop some of it into fleece liner shapes? Or is it not that kind of fleece (I have no idea!) ? Just trying to stick to a very tight budget.
My initial idea was to make my own by cutting up some fleece and terry cloth and doing them double sided, but having looked at the cost it didn't seem worth it.
I know some people swear by the little face cloths you can get from the pound shop - they're £1 for 6. I didn't get on with them though, found them much too little and thin. I ended up buying some Cheeky Wipes - the plain white terry ones - and tbh they are brilliant.
Thank you that's very helpful. Quite expensive on the cheeky wipes website (especially as I'm not sure how I will get on) but I will look in primark and check out how big their face cloths are, hopefully they will be better quality than the pound store.
If terry works, Sainsbury do very cheap white value towels, 1.50 for a hand towel which could be chopped up? I use them for tea towels as they dry really well. Probably get the same thing in value ranges elsewhere?
Do you have any soft absorbent clothes that are falling apart? I had small ones that used to be cotton or jersey boxers, then larger ones that used to be brushed cotton pyjamas. Just cut into 4in or 6in rough squares. I kept a lidded box of water on the change table. The pound shop flannels worked too, but not as absorbent.
Bee yeah tbh Cheeky Wipes are just like little flannels! I only got them because we had been given an Amazon voucher, couldn't have justified the cost otherwise. The pound shop ones aren't like flannels, they're more like...I don't know, weird t-shirt material almost.
