Ok sewing frenzie over here now pmsl! QUESTION! (again)

I have 10 billion muslin cloths that I haven't used since Erin was newborn as she's never been a sicky baby.

If I doubled them up would they make ok wipes?

Hi Hannah,

maybe someone that uses them will answer and say yes. I have got loads from when he was a tiny baby, but I can't see them making good wipes. I might be wrong and if I am someone say and I will join you in the sewing frenzy!!! :lol:

I'd say yes, if you double them up abit to make them thicker I can't see why they wouldn't work. Your really getting into cloth now, next thing we know you'll be making your own nappies!

Well this whole wipe thing started after i read the ingredients on the packet and read CITRIC ACID on it!!! I used wipes for everything too! I would wipe erin's face after dinner no wonder her eczema on her face was so bad if tomato's and citrus fruit set her off then so would these wipes!

TBH I feel dumb for not checking sooner!

My sewing is good enough for nappies and neither is my patience! lol! Or I would make my own nappies lol
