Reusable Baby Wipes
Reusable Baby Wipes
Switching to cloth baby wipes is one of the easiest eco-friendly decisions you can make. Using reusable baby wipes is easy and convenient, will save you money and will reduce waste. All while cleaning your babies bottom in the most gentle way possible.
Our reusable baby wipes are made from natural materials can be used alongside cloth or disposable nappies. Perfect for a newborn baby's very first nappy until potty training and beyond.
They are perfect for little hands & faces, great for health and protecting baby from chemicals that may contribute to nappy rash, and reusable cloth wipes are also super handy for cleaning up spills so they can replace paper towels as well as wet wipes.
As soon as you become a parent wet wipes become a part of your everyday life for years. Parents reach for the baby wipe packet at playtime and mealtimes, not to mention the baby wipe mountain needed for nappy changes.
Disposable baby wipes are made from plastic, with biodegradable brands being too expensive for most people. Even cheaper baby wipe brands add up over time, which is just one reason why washable cloth baby wipes offer a great alternative.
Reusable baby wipes offer a natural and cost-effective alternative:
Our eco-friendly cotton or bamboo wipes also make ideal face wipes for all the family, not just the kids.
Bamboo Baby Wipes
Little lamb bamboo wipes are made from a double layer of soft bamboo viscose and rayon. They can be washed alongside reusable cloth nappies and although they are quick drying can also be used wet straight from the machine, just pop in a wet bag or tub.
Bamboo is generally softer and more absorbent than cotton but the fibres are shorter meaning it isn't quite so durable. But don't worry these wipes will still last a long time, you'll save money and save thousands of disposable wipes from ending up in landfill or worse our oceans.
These come in a pack of 12, are easy to use and ideal for all the family not just babies and toddlers.
Cloth Baby Wipes
BumGenius washable cloth baby wipes are made from 100% unbleached cotton flannel fabric that is soft and gentle on little bums, hands and faces. Again they can be washed alongside reusable nappies. Or keep for hands and faces and clean with your normal washing.
Baby Wipes Kit - What you need to use washable baby wipes
Building a good baby wipes kit will make using cloth baby wipes easier meaning you can save money and do your bit for the planet with minimal hassle.
What your baby wipes kit needs:
If you are using washable wet wipes at home alongside either washable cloth nappies or disposables you'll probably want a couple of tubs or wet bags. One to keep clean wipes moist and one to keep dirty wipes contained until it's time to wash them.
Although they work perfectly just with water many people also use essential oils to keep wipes fresh and smelling lovely. A couple of drops of lavender essential oil is perfect for clean wipes as it is gentle of baby's skin and has natural antiseptic, anti-fungal and healing properties. And a drop of chamomile essential oil can also be very soothing if a baby has a sore bum. Tea tree essential oil is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal making it perfect for keeping dirty wipes fresh until they get washed.
Although there are lots of amazing smelling essential oils available make sure you check they are safe for babies and always dilute according to instructions.
When using reusable wipes out and about you just need a small wet bag to carry them in. A spray bottle is also handy so that you can moisten cloth baby wipes as you go.
Many people make the switch to cloth baby wipes because they already use washable cloth diapers but if you're starting with washable wipes and looking for other eco baby alternatives reusable nappies are a superb next step.
