I'm a bit surprised by all the negative reviews - not sure whether I got lucky with my batch of Dri Bot wipes, but I like them!
Yes they are thin, but I prefer thin wipes which are good for getting into tiny nooks and crannies - thicker wipes can't clean as precisely, I find.
I didn't find them "dry" at all. I purchased a big bulk carton of 960 wipes on special for $9 which is unbelievably cheap!
Despite being cheaper, they are gentle on daughter's skin and we haven't had any problems there. They don't really have a smell at all.
If there is a bigger mess then yes I do have to use several, but overall it still works out to be much cheaper than other wipes. I like them and would buy again for sure!
I bought these purely because they were very cheap. I didn't really expect them to be fantastic but i was hoping they would be a little better than they are.
They are very thin so you need to fold them up or use more than one so they don't break through.
When you pull one out a whole bunch will come out all stuck together - so you need to spend time seperating them which can be a disaster if you don't plan ahead and get a wiggly bub with a pooey bum.
You need several to get a good clean so they run out quickly.
They are supposed to be fragance free but have a strong, chemical smell.
Overall not great and i wouldn't re-purchase
I bought these wipes in abudance when they were on special and have to say - when trying them out I was disappointed.
The wipes were so thin and hard to wipe up number 2's.
I found that I was using 2 or 3 times for for each nappy change than what I would use from my more expensive but trusty wipes and so in the long run, the cheap buying price ended up being more expensive.
I would recommend paying the extra for a better quality, thicker wipe.
I bought absolutely heaps of these when they were on special, and I am still using them. I have been using them for almost four mths and think that they are alright for the price.
DS has had no instances of nappy rash, although I believe this is more to do with other factors: we always apply cream, he gets nappy off time daily and we try to bath him after a poo if its possible.
I ahve really sensitive skin so I have always been very careful with the little one's skin to avoid getting nappy rash- I only use the packet wipes after a poo, then bath him if I can, but on the instances where a bath hasnt been possible, we had no trouble with Dri bots wipes.
On the downside- they dont come out of the packet one at a time- so you have to get them out and separate them BEFORE you take the nappy off! A couple of packets also wouldnt reseal very well, but most were fine. They are a little thin- so I use them folded in half, otherwise "it" comes through.
For that price, I would buy them again for sure :)
I have been trying to find cheeper alternative wipes to save valuable $$$.
I find these wipes clean the bottom well, but pull out in lumps, so where you may only require 2 or three wipes, you may get 7! So much for saving.
the only good thing about these wipes is that they are cheap.
i bought a big box of these before my sone was born and stopped using them as they caused a rash on him. they wernt all that moist either. i ended up using them to clean the highchair.
