Swap your commercial wipes for some eco-friendly, soft, terry cloth diaper wipes that will last beyond the days in diapers. -- Bummas website
Through the research I've done during our switch to cloth wipes, I found one company that makes only cloth wipes--Bummas. Because they specialize in awesome resusable wipes, I just had to try some--and share them with you, of course! I love that they are made in the USA (California) and come rolled up in a bundle displaying all of the edge colors. Bummas also reduced their price for 2012--instead of $16.99, they are now only $15!
My ReviewBummas Cloth Wipes Sold in sets of 10, in various color combinations
Colors. We received The Wild Ones for our review. They are a ten pack of all different color Bummas. Several are white with various colored edge thread, while others are vibrant colors with different colored thread edges. There are five color pack options. Check them all out on the Bummas website.
Size. My only complaint about Bummas is the size, they are a 5x7" rectangle with square edges. While it is definitely a handy size, I have found myself using more than one to get the job done during a "dirty diaper" changing. For simple "wet" diaper changes, I always reach for a Bummas because the size is perfect for wiping on one half, and drying with the other half.
Care. Like all of our other cloth wipes, you can wash Bummas with your diapers. I throw the dirty ones in our diaper pail, and they go through the same routine on wash day. Bummas are made to last beyond G's days in diapers, so our future children will get to experience these durable wipes too.
Use. I cannot stress to you how simple using cloth wipes has become in our household. Even my husband has told friends and family that it's "not nearly as hard as I thought it would be." Use a bit of water, a homemade solution, or a commercial wipe spray with your Bummas to make diaper changes a breeze. We've even used a clean one for post-dinner face/hand washing when all of G's wash cloths were dirty. I have to admit, it was better than her regular ones.
The packaging on Bummas suggests these other great uses:
- "Avert the squirt when changing diapers"
- simply dry baby after cleaning up
- use as burp cloths or "shoulder armor"
- take-along for quick cleanups
- use for nose wipes
- use as bath time cloths
