Cloth Baby Wipes!

The easiest environmentally and cost friendly change we have made in our house was the swap from traditional disposable baby wipes to cloth. Many babies have sensitivities to ingredients baby wipes and switching to cloth is an easy way to eliminate these skin reactions!

Heres how we did it:

There are many cloth baby wipe products you could buy. But, we went the cheap route. We bought 4 packs of cheap baby wash cloths and use those! I have a wipe warmer, which I use to stack the wash cloths inside. I then pour plain water over the folded wash cloths and boom! Cloth wipes have been made! You don’t need to add anything except water to clean babies bum.

If you don’t have a wipe warmer, you could use any container that holds water so you don’t have a leaky mess!

We use a wet bag for our cloth diapers anyway, and just toss the wipes into the bag after each use. See my Cloth Diapering post for learning about making the switch to cloth diapers too!

Hint: For many of us, cleaning poo with a cloth wipe sounds icky. You could easily use disposable wipes for the poo and cloth when there isn’t poo if this sounds more doable to you! You will still see plenty of money on wipes and help the environment!

Since switching from disposable to cloth, my baby has never had a diaper rash! Her skin looks awesome and I’m confident that removing chemicals from her skin has been such a blessing.

To take cloth wipes on the go, throw them in a zippy bag or re usable zippy bag!
