Looking for inexpensive cloth wipes that do the job well? I've just discovered some I think you'll like. A wipe is a wipe, right? You may have noticed though that some are not so modestly priced, some as expensive as $2 per wipe, yikes! If you're on a budget and don't want to make your own, you'll love the OsoCozy Flannel Wipes. They come in a generous pack of 15 for only $6.50 at Thanks Mama, I've seen them cost over $4 more on other sites. These end up being just $0.44 cents per wipe if you also buy something else you need and get free shipping. But even with shipping they would cost you less than on many other sites.
It's a thin flannel wipe and I was concerned it may not hold up to a blowout, so I decided to try. It was one of those 'would-have-been-everywhere-if-he-wore-a-disposable' blowouts! I just wet my wipes with water under the sink before a diaper change. The size of these is 7 by 7 inches, it was adequate, and even though they are so thin I was surprised at how well they cleaned up the mess. I had nothing on my hands, test passed. Although I would reserve these for light clean ups, they are good enough to use every diaper change. So if you must spend as little money as you can on the wipes, these will cost you less than making your own (if you consider the time you would spend on it). The edges are nicely surged with soft rainbow pastel colors. These wipes are made in Pakistan, in case you're wondering.
We tried the natural unbleached ones and I actually like that color more than white cloth wipes because you do not see any stains on it, that's a nice bonus. White wipes always look a little stained. There are also a ton of other uses for these, they are perfect for wiping noses, drool, spit up. Keep some in the diaper bag since they conveniently do not take up a lot of space, good to always have on hand - like tissues but not as wasteful. I keep one tucked in the car seat, bouncer, all the places where he makes a mess and I need something quick to wipe it up.
