Two layers of 100% cotton birdseye fabric. About 7 x 7.5 inches after shrinkage with some variation. Before shrinkage they are about 8.5 x 8.5 inches. Fold in half to fit into a wipes warmer.
Quick to prep. Just wash twice and start using them.
Birdseye fabric has little "birds" woven into the fabric. This is much smoother than terry but not as smooth as flannel. Thus, they have a nice amount of "grippiness" to get stuff off with a balance of being smooth enough for softness. They can also be used as cotton diaper liners, to keep meconium off of your newborn diapers or if you need to use a cream but don't want to use a flushable liner. The cream will wash out of these more easily than a prefold or other diaper because they are thinner, yet you still might have to scrub creams off by hand. Easy washing and fast drying. Also great in the kitchen for little cleanups jobs.
We added a small seam across the wipe to help them keep their shape, yet cotton shrinkage will vary a bit of course. Like all unbleached cotton, wash several times on hot with detergent before first use. Suggested amount: 4 packs for a young baby, 3 packs for an older baby. 100% cotton. Two layers of fabric sewn together to keeps stuff off your hands yet they are still thin enough to be easy to use. Made of organic cotton. Made in Pakistan. In packs of 12 wipes.
They fit in most wipes warmers when folded in half. Shown after washing folded in half.
There are many ways to use cotton wipes. Here is one idea. See how nice and flat these wipes are after washing? Trim yet substantial since they are two layers.
A stack of three packs of wipes (36 total), shown after washing, with Diaper Lotion Potion Spray and a GroVia Magic stick (both not included). The bowl of water on the left is for dipping. Dip a clean wipe into the water. Don't double dip. If you need more cleaning power than water alone, spritz the wipe (or the baby's bottom) with the Diaper Lotion Potion Spray. Or, touch the moistened wipe across a bar of gentle baby soap. You can pre-moisten the wipes if you prefer. You control the ingredients that you use on your baby's most delicate parts.
The water can be warm water for a fresh, warm water wipe. Try putting warm water in an insulated beverage container and keep that near your changing place. Wipes warmers are fine, but perhaps use something that you already own. Young babies tend to prefer warm wipes.
These are oh my goodness! The best wipes! They are so think and simply lovely!
I love these. I washed and used them right away, but it took about 4-5 washes and dries before they got properly absorbent (I squirt them with a homemade wipes solution before wiping baby). The size is perfect. They are soft, but do grip well. I air dry our laundry most of the time, and they dry great hanging or in the dryer. They've kept their shape, and if they've shrunk I honestly can't tell. It's funny I have a bunch of really nice wipes my mum sewed for me, cotton knit on one side and either organic cotton velour or bamboo fleece on the other, but I actually find I prefer these birdseye wipes and reach for them first! I got these because I needed a few extra as I kept running out (wash every 2 days) and they're perfect. Plus, once baby outgrows wipes, they'll have loads of uses around our house! We use family cloth for pee, so I'll likely add them to that rotation over time.
I purchased a dozen of these for drying to use in combination with our toilet seat bidet. They’re absorbent which I love. If you were using them wet on a baby bum I would still like them because they have a grip to them but are still soft on baby’s skin!
I’ve had these wipes for over two years now. They look practically new and don’t show any signs of excessive wear. I used them as baby wipes until the baby became a toddler and potty trained, and now they are in the stack of family cloth. They are my size, fabric, and thickness of the many wipes I’ve tried (for the purpose of a baby wipe and family cloth). I highly recommend these wipes and am a very satisfied, decade long, customer.
Love this thickness, texture and quality of these wipes. Superior to all others
