 Cloth wipes can be used alongside with cloth diapering or for everyday use around the house.  Once they are soiled, store them away with the dirty cloth diapers until laundry day.  Reusable cloth wipes can be bought from any online or retail store that specialize in selling cloth diapers.  Kelly’s Closets, Mom’s Milk Boutique and Nicki's Diapers are a few places online that sells cloth wipes. You can also make your own reusable wipes from recycled materials, such as receiving blankets or soft towels made from 100% cotton, flannel, or bamboo. If time is of the essence, you could consider using soft wash cloths made from 100% cotton as reusable wipes.  I use these a lot, in addition to making my own. Reusable Cloth Wipes Tutorial

  • 3 - 4 Receiving blankets or soft towels
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread or sewing machine
Cut materials into 8x8 squares.  Take two 8x8 squares and stitch edges together on the wrong side.  Leave a small open so that materials can be turned on the right side.  Turn materials on the right side and enclosed the opening.  Repeat this process, and make up to 3 dozen wipes.

  • I am a Grandma who cloth diapered her firstborn in 1975, partly cloth diapered her 2nd child in 1978, then when the 3rd came in 1984 I used disposables. To be more eco-friendly I will be encouraging that last daughter to cloth diaper HER firstborn due this winter. Today so many products are available to the

  • Cloth diapering is the only way to go. Really it seems like your saving time and money when you run to store for a package of disposable but your really just wasting your money, has and clogging up the landfill with items that take years to decompose and it’s horrible for our environment.

  • As for cloth diapers I wanted to use them on my daughter when she was born over 20 years ago now. Thing may be easier now but as a first time Mom then it was just too much work to upkeep them, the baby and myself with no help from anyone all at the same time. As I said I really wanted to use them for all the benefits but wasn’t able to keep it up. Good luck to anyone that wants to use them maybe with help it would be easier or if you’re not a first time Mom or maybe I was just the odd man out and wasn’t organized enough.

  • I work at a daycare and a lot of parents say they don’t send their kids with cloth diapers because it would be inconvenient for us! But I think it would be just as easy for us as disposable. And a thousand times better for the Earth!

  • Totally agree with cloth diapering! My three were diapered in cloth, and it sure made a difference! All of them ‘trained’ by 18 months with no struggle or effort. They wanted to go in the potty, and it was available, but never an issue of contention. When my youngest was 2 1/2, we were at a family gathering. My nephew’s wife went to change her son, who is 18 months older than my daughter. Linda asked if/why I wasn’t changing my daughter. Had to tell her that my daughter had been ‘trained’ for a year…while she strapped a disposable on her 4 year old.
