A reader on my Facebook Page asked about these and they look pretty good!
I have tested them out and do like how they perform as well. They are also compostable according to Honest Company which I think is rather cool. I reviewed these a few years ago, though I tried the scented version. They were nice wipes, the scent was a bit strong but they worked fine. Nothing too alarming in the ingredients list.
I found the texture to be a little weird but the ingredients kind of make up for it. They have reformulated these wipes to eliminate the use of phenoxyethanol and some of the PEG ingredients, however, they are using Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate and a non-organic aloe juice which can always have a risk of paraben preservation from the distributor. Seems unnecessary for a baby wipe. Water, cocoamidoproply pg-dimonium chloride phosphate, sodium benzoate, quillaja saponaria wood extract, citric acid, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, tocopheryl acetate.
The wipe material used in this product is a blend of wood pulp, polypropylene and polyethylene. This is a new formula it is what they have published. A new brand for us here that makes a lot of claims of natural, but I see a bit of ingredients I typically question. Phenoxyethanol is not a deal breaker for me unless there are options that work without it.
Same goes for Cocamidopropyl Betaine due to contamination concerns. A lot of these wipe companies add SOME kind of preservative or else your wipes get moldy rather quick. Both this one and the Sensitive version of wipes score the same. Aqua filtered water , decyl glucoside, glycerin, sodium hydroxymethlglycinate, simethicone, citric acid, tocopheryl acetate vitamin E , aloe barbadensis extract Thank you to my readers for providing this list for me!
Not bad and certainly better than most.. Seems like a chemically processed replacement for parabens. Many cloth diapering families will attest to the ease of use and reduction of the environmental impact that reusable cloth baby wipes provide.
Can I just pre-moisten the wipes with the solution and place them in a warmer? If so, how moist do the wipes need to be? Amanda, In the wipe warmer place your wipes, then pour your warm wipe solution over it.
Also, make sure you clean your wipe warmer at least once a week. How much water do you use with the solutions you listed above? I am using a diaper service that brings and launders cloth wipes as well, so I was wanting to find a cheaper option for making wipe solution and these mixtures sound perfect.
And when you say distilled water, I am guessing that would mean the water coming through my Pur filter would work? Emily, your filter will work fine.
The amount of water needed is listed with each individual solution recipe. For example, the basic wipes solution and chamomile tea and lavender solution both require 2 cups of water. All recipes are listed towards the bottom of the article with the amount of water listed among the ingredients. Can I pull pregnancy brain on this one! Sorry if this is a silly question but I am new to the cloth diaper and wipes.
Thank you for posting this!! The coconut oil solution could be used. I would recommend drying them off after washing. Or spray a little in your hand, rub, in then use a dry cloth. What an awesome post!
Thank you for all the information. Hi Krista, I noticed the chamomile recipe calls for 2 tsp lavender oil. I am used to seeing recipes that call for drops of essential oils. Is there a different type of lavender oil that I should be using for this large quantity?
I think this would be my entire bottle of lavender! Also, I have read where vinegar can tend to burn their little bottoms if it is already sore… Any thoughts on this? Crystal, The aloe vera should counterbalance any possible burning the vinegar can cause.
The vinegar helps kill the bacteria and is used in a very small amount. I would personally use organic coconut oil. Instead of mixing it into the solution, I would apply a small amount direct to the infected area after cleaning.
This really helped me out zoo much! I do have a question, do wipes that are used for bottoms during diapering need to be kept separate after washing from wipes that I will use on faces etc? Marina, Just in case something goes wrong with sanitizing them during cleaning, I would keep a few separate, but honestly I do use my family cloth at times to blow my nose it feels so much better than toilet paper or tissue and I have never had a problem, but with little ones, I am always more conscientious.
Krista, My youngest son and his wife will be cloth diapering when their baby arrives. I suggested they also use homemade cloth wipes; I did this when my boys were babies. How big would you suggest cutting them, to include enough for hemming?
Thanks for a wonderful article! I look forward to exploring the rest of your site! I would measure off of a wash cloth. That seems to be about the same size as the cloth wipes I use. I am curious if you have any suggestions for essential oils that would have anti-bacterial properties and help with smell that are not either lavendar or tea tree oil?
Almost all recipes use these two oils. We just use tea trea oil. Roman Chamomile would be another essential oil that you could use Briana Sawyer.
However, I never added essential oils to my wipe solution because Dr. While in cloth diapers we rarely had an issue with diaper rash, but if bums started to get red I used coconut oil which is safe for cloth diapers.
If it got worse I added lavender. I was just wondering how effective the anti-fungal recipe is for treating a yeast rash. My son had a yeast rash that was making him bleed. After two diaper changes using the anti-fungal solution, it was already healing. I hope it works just as well for you. I will admit, I probably went a little heavier on the white vinegar, since I estimated due to mixing the solution quickly at night, while he was upset.
Also, due to supply issues, I also used aloe vera juice, instead of gel, and copaiba essential oil we had this from when we had his lip and tongue tie revised, since his dentist uses it to heal skin and decrease pain , instead of calendula essential oil.
Just wanted to get back to you and let others know that it worked very well for me too! So nice to have such a natural and environmentally friendly alternative. Soap is also in the baby wipes you purchase from the store. And can we put aloe from a plant? And chamomile fresh that I use,someone told me that if you leave the chamomile without consuming it within an hour,it goes bad..
If you are intending to keep the solution for long periods of time, keep it in an air-tight container, by itself. Hi, it seems my 1 yr old is allergic to coconut oil. After trying the coconut oil solution, his but got all red when I went to change his diaper again later. Is it okay if I use olive oil to replace the coconut oil in the recipe? Try olive oil, sunflower oil, or grape seed oil. I hope you can find something to work. Since pure essential oils by themselves should be stored in dark glass bottles Thanks!
And to clean out the wipe warmer can I spray some fresh bask wipe solution and wipe out to clean it? Just want to say your article is as surprising. The clearness in your publish is simply excellent and that i could think you are a professional on this subject.
