Two layers of unbleached organic 100% cotton birdseye fabric sewn together with a center seam.
Pictures shown after washing. Birdseye fabric has little "birds" woven into the fabric. This is much smoother than terry fabric. Birdseye has a nice amount of "grippiness" to get stuff off with a balance of being smooth enough for softness. Two layers gives you the right level of thickness for absorbency, plus two layers of fabric helps them stay flatter. It gives them enough thickness so that it is easy to grab one. Single layer look-alikes curl up, stick together and are more difficult to handle. Having two layers of fabric makes them much better and easier to use. Paper towels can't compare to two layers of birdseye cotton. Simple, yet so effective.
They can also be used as preemie diapers or layered as newborn cotton diapers.
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 in a regular size load of laundry, perhaps through 5-8 cycles, on hot with detergent before using. This prep washing is needed to wash off the natural cotton oils present in unbleached cotton. It needs to be washed off before the full absorbency of the cotton is reached.
Made of organic cotton, exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan. In packs of 12 wipes.
A storage idea:
You don't have to roll them but this is pretty. A simple stack on the counter or in a drawer works fine.
New! Also available in white cotton.
Go to Cloth-eez Paper Towel Alternative - white cotton version.
Also available in a group of 4 packs as a Kit.
Comparison of various kinds and sizes of these and the baby wipes version. They are the same fabric (choose white or unbleached organic) and construction (two layers with center seam), but different sizes. Shown new in this picture, before normal cotton shrinkage.

I ended up using them to booster my overnight diapers! They worked great for adding that little bit of extra absorption! Now I’m ordering more because I’m sure they’ll work great as paper towel replacements too.
Absolutely love them! They are super soft and worn wonderful. Highly recommend
I love these! They are thin and large but not too thin or too large. What can I say?!...they are perfect. They wash up well and don’t smell. Right now I use them for anything in the kitchen. I plan to buy more to replace any other cloths I have such as crocheted cotton cloths and microfiber. I’m in love.
I’ve tried some other types of reusable kitchen towels as a replacement to paper towels, these are by far the best! So much so I’m getting another pack!
First bought these on a whim to try to reduce my paper towel use. I wound up keeping them in the nursery and I use them for everything...wiping up dribbled milk after pumping, as a burp cloth, under baby's head on the changing table if I expect some spit up...the list goes on. I bought another set because I was using them so much and needed a taller stack! They wash well and they're nice and soft. Definitely recommend!
