Cloth Wipes | sets of 30
Why consider a change: as you head down the sustainable living path, it becomes easy to see how many single use products exist in our homes. These cloths provide a reusable option for many things within the home without any plastic content, plastic packaging, or big box shops.
The Product: Perfect for so many uses within your home, these single ply cloth wipes are a great all purpose size that gets better with use and washing. Use them for cloth diapering, as a wash cloth, while camping, for cleaning, as toilet paper, napkins, as a replacement for facial tissues, removing make-up, etc.
Ange's tip: to help differentiate uses in your home, choose different colours. For example, choose ivory for facial tissue replacements, charcoal for wiping kids after meals, patterns for cleaning, etc.

First, if needed, loosen stains with a cold rinse, then do a warm or hot wash with your detergent of choice. *Do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets as these will decrease absorbency. Tumble dry or hang to dry. Flannel naturally becomes softer and more absorbent with continued washes. These wipes will hold up to all the rinsing and hot washes you put your cloth diapers through. Wipes are not pre-washed, so expect some shrinkage (ends up as 7"x8")
