Since we use cloth diapers, it was a natural progression for us to start using cloth wipes. I needed to make some new ones recently, so I made a tutorial for you in case you want to make some as well! Cloth wipes are easy to use if you’re already using cloth diapers… just roll them up with the diaper and wash with the diapers! They save a ton of money over disposables wipes, since you can use them over and over again until they wear out.
I made mine using a flannel receiving blanket we were given at the hospital, but you could buy flannel if you don’t have any on hand. Using pinking shears means you don’t have to hem them – yay!
Cut the flannel into even squares, each approximately the size of a normal baby wipe. To make them all the same size, fold the fabric first to see how many you will get out of it. I cut my fabric into four strips lengthwise first.
Then I cut each strip into six squares.
Stack ’em up, and you’re done!
You can use warm water alone, but I like to make a wipes solution (I like these). You can make all different kinds of wipes solutions… just google around for one you like. Also, when my girls have had rashes in the past, I soaked their cloth wipes in water and apple cider vinegar before using them. It helps clear up the rash!
