Whats best on cloth wipes?

Postby lolly-82 » Mon Feb 13, 2012 8:36 pm

Hi I am starting the adventure of cloth wipes and I am wondering what's the bet solution to use on them ?
I was wondering about making my own solution or buying some, thought I would ask here first for some wise words :giggle: x

I use plain water, just dampen them under the tap when needed. Although in the past I have just squirted CJ's butter spritz for very sticky pongy situations as it was to hand.

We just use plain water too...we wet them, wring out and pop them in a box to keep them moist :D

I found wipe solution a bit of a faff, plus DD has a sensitive bot so its best keeping it simple for us!

We found water alone wasn't getting her clean enough and her bum cleared up beautifully when we started using lotion. So now I use water on the terry side to get the mucky stuff, then fold and put a squirt of lotion on the fleece side to finish :-)

I keep dry wipes, a small tupperware box of water (filled every day) and a bottle of green baby lotion on the windowsill next to her changing table.

I make up a pot of camomile tea with a little bit of honey and soak them in that ... seems to work nicely ...

Water. And more than one wipe if it's bad! Never needed anything else.
