Ive used washable wipes for a few years, the ones I have are either towelling or flanelette (cotton), Ive made my own solutions for them but have concluded that plain water is as good as anything. I like to keep them in a box and wet them with boiled water. I sometimes use a water spray, sometimes with a camomile infusion.
As my stocks were running low, I went on ebay to buy some more. I found lots of fleece ones, but somehow I cant imagine fleece being that good at wiping. Am I wrong? I just wondered what they were like as they are much cheaper than the cotton ones, as these are all overlocked to stop them fraying. (I know I can buy cheapo facecloths too, I have plenty of these, but I like a smaller size cotton wipe).
I bought some Ella's house ones from Bibsnbots . They were £2 for 5 and are overlocked - fleece on one side and cotton (?) on the other? They are more effective than fleece wipes which I also have. Fleece work OK but the overlocked seem to be better.
WeeNotions do double sided wipes at a good price. About £4 for 10 depending on which ones you order. ALl custom made so you can choose what you have. These are my favourite ones anyway. I have some fleece ones that I made by chopping up a blanket. They work fine, but not as good as double sided ones. Fleece is great for when they have sore bums. I hated my cotton wipes as I found they weren't gentle enough but I do have hard water so they go crunchy here.
Fleece is very cheap and cheerful. Does the job but not a luxtury.
I agree, use fleece dry for poos. I use fleece and a water spray - tend to spray his bum and wipe with fleece. For wees, I can either spray him or the fleece. I don't like them too wet 'cos they don't work as well, but they never stain and dry in seconds so I really like them.
