Make Your Own Cloth Diaper Wipes

Buying disposable wipes can be pretty pricey. There is just no need to spend the extra cash when making your own cloth wipes is this easy. Cloth wipes are gentle on your baby, easy to make, and they save you money! They can also be easily laundered with your cloth diapers. Just moisten them with plain water or a homemade wipe solution before use.

First, decide what kind of fabric you want to use. You can select from many different diapering fabrics like sherpa, hemp fleece, flannel, and velour. If you use a thicker fabric you can make one-layer wipes. You can use thinner fabrics for two-layer wipes. Get creative and choose some fun fabrics and prints.

Next you need to decide what size to make your wipes. You can make them any size you want, but traditionally, they are either 8" x 8" or 4" x 8". The smaller wipes fit in commercial wipes containers easily, and the larger wipes fit when folded in half.
