Cotton terry on one side, soft flannel on the other side. Terry is great for the main job, and the nice, smooth, gentle flannel is great for the final touch-up details. White cotton is the best color for wipes, so you can see what you are doing.
5x8 inches, approximate measurements before washing, and they will shrink somewhat. Thicker than most wipes.
Because they are actually two different fabrics, the sides will each shrink slightly differently from each other so expect some edge curling after washing, which is fine. I love this size, the feel, and the practicality of the 2 different sides. May fit in your wipes warmer without folding. This wipe is Karen's favorite, because I find it easiest to use several wipes per poopy change, grabbing a fresh wipe as needed, rather than folding a larger wipe over and over. These wipes are substantial and thick enough not to soak through. To me, flannel on one side and terry on the other has the best "feel" for the job. Suggested amount: 4 packs for a young baby, 3 packs for an older baby. 100% cotton. Made in Pakistan.

I wish I had gotten these earlier! Amazing product and good for the environment. I will buying these for all new parents moving forward!
I’m new on my cloth diaper journey and for some reason I was most intimidated by reusable wipes. Little did I know, this was actually the easiest part of my journey. They are so efficient and useful. I have them around for all kinds of things. I originally bought one pack of 12 and ordered three additional packs after trying them. If I could only recommend one thing at GMD, it would be these!
At first, we did not care for these as they pillowed at the edges a good bit. However, they improved with more wash cycles and the size is actually very handy for changes and you don't feel like you waste/not use the majority of the wipe.
Love the organic unbleached wipes! Perfect size for the wipes warmer and baby’s bottom. Also they fit just right folded in half in a thirties AIO as added absorbency. The white ones are a bit thicker and super soft. Fine for wiping but harder to fold. I prefer the size and ease of use of the unbleached.
We do cloth diapers, cloth wipes, cloth menstrual pads, so why not cloth toilet paper? We only use it for number one, which is pee. That, in and of itself, saves us a ton of money on toilet paper for the female members in our family. It is also much better at cleaning and is much more hygienic. I also love the size (and I don't have to fold them to make them look pretty) and the thickness of the terry cloth. You only need one and no wet fingers. I wash them with our cloth diapers. Cleanest laundry in the house. I bought wire baskets that I hang on the wall under the toilet paper dispenser (that fits the wipes perfectly and can also detach from the wall if I want to hide it) and hang a small/medium wetbag on it for soiled wipes. We love it; even my husband is surprised at how much we are saving, and how not weird it is. I suspect we save a roll of toilet paper each wash with four females in the household, every other day laundering (that I was going to launder ANYWAY- so no added loads or washes to my week) I got three dozen for each bathroom.
Thank you Amanda for all the helpful advice on alternative uses for these wipes and how to make it work in the household. If you have a septic system it will thank you!
