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.

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!
I have not used them yet but feel nice and look very well made. Happy with my purchase.
Wish I had gotten some of these sooner
I bought these cloths and then re-ordered more. They work perfect for diaper changing. Great size and absorbancy.
I’m a FTM, due in July 2019, and I’m starting the cloth diaper journey so cloth wipes to toss into the laundry with the diapers seem like a no brainer. These have a smooth side and a fluffy side for ‘scrubbing’ so with my wipe mix spray, these will work in any situation. They’re good quality and soft and fit perfectly in a regular diaper wipe box!
