List your different wipes and best purpose

Does that make sense?

We have:

Organic cotton/Suede cloth Waffle Wipe set x2:
http://www.minkinappies.co.uk/product_i ... ucts_id=37

These are great all round wipes, I use them mainly for my lo's bum but are really good at taking oats from porridge of her hands, I'd say these aren't great at taking of those tiny bits of poo (you know the bits that get stuck :giggle: ), I haven't really used the other waffle side as it doesn't seem that great but the suede is super soft


Fleece wipes:
Ebay, or buy a roll and cut it up, liners are good too.

Ok for cleaning up the tiny bits of poo, good or for wiping hands, I find a little rough on the face and aren't my first choice for bum cleaning as they make her very wet, I often end up using the fleece liners when the other wipes have run out. I usually put a load of these in the changing bag especially with the colours to show off through the little see through wipes bag.


Terry Wipes:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BNIP-6-x-Baby-Was ... 3360fa0805

These are fantastic for poos! They do well with the little bits that get stuck on the bum and I only really use these for this job. Very cheap to buy and wash up well.



Home made (I think; they were bought preloved) tiny squares of Muslin:

I use these for small 'jobs' i.e. blowing nose, a small area that needs wiping, or to put in the changing bag. I prefer to not use too many of these as they used to go missing in the old washing machine and they are a pita to dry as they get lost and fall off the stair rails. They do wipe things well but being thin cotton as Muslin cloths are they soak through quickly, feel a little rough and don't wipe as well.

We have a few bamboo velour ones but they were freebies!

I have loads of different wipes, nearly all hand dyed BV with different backings and use them for everything. I only ever bought a 10 pack of WN wipes when I first started using them, all the others I have got free with the 100s of nappies I have bought from WAHMs. :wink:
