    Default Flushable wipes

    I'm not sure this is the right place to post this, but can't see why dispo users would be that keen to track down disposable wipes. We're currently using our same set of MCN for DS2 and are running out of our super-stash of flushable wipes to use with our cloth. We have a third on the way as well, so are keen to find a (hopefully) affordable source of flushable wipes to keep us stocked for the next couple of years. There seem to be quite a few around that say they are biodegradable, but none of the ones that I can currently find say they are flushable except for the hideously expensive wet wipes you can find in the toilet paper section. Anyone have any favourite brands that they're currently using? I hate throwing the wipes in the bin instead, since at least part of the point for cloth for us is that waste goes where it is meant to be treated, in the loo. And although I use cloth wipes in the young bub, liquid poo, milk-fed stage, toddler (or almost) poos definitely have me reaching for something I can flush away. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    I've only used the Kleenex flushable ones which are about $6 or $7 for a pack of 84, I think.

    Subscribing to see if there is anything cheaper.

    Ecogenisis

    As a cloth nappy mum i hated the idea of using non-biodegradale nappys (for night time) and wipes. I found these products and they are GREAT!! I even use the period pads too.

    You can make your own using paper towel. If you google it there are heaps of variations for different skin types too!

    That's a good tip about the paper towel. Although I've heard it blocks the system. But in saying that, the actual flushable wipes probably aren't much better toilet wise.

    Paper towel will block your toilet.

    We have septic tanks and old thin plumbing and have had no trouble using paper towel. I use the cheap recycled stuff and it seems to break down better. There are also methods that use toilet paper but I find the pieces too small.

    Had a look online and ecogenesis says biodegradable but it doesn't say flushable. Have you flushed with no problems?
