The Best Wipes Ever (at least I think so)

I know that deciding to undertake the task of sewing ones own cloth diapers is not appealing to most people.  Something that may seem a little more manageable is sewing cloth wipes.  If you’re going to use cloth diapers (or even if you’re not) it makes sense to use cloth wipes as well.  I love using the cloth wipes I made.  I had to use disposable wipes not too long ago and it was not a pretty sight.  I feel like most of what I was wiping up managed to get on my hands.  Uh, yuck.

These cloth wipes are awesome because they are hefty!  This is how I made them.  Cut an 8″x8″ square of flannel and the same size out of an old t-shirt and zig-zag stitch them together.  If you have a serger that works even better but I do not have that wonderful machine (if anyone wants to get me one for Christmas I would be eternally grateful).

You can make a solution to use with your wipes by mixing olive oil, water, and essential oils.  Here are some recipes for solution.  I can tell you that I have never made a solution, I just use water and it works great.
