    Default Fabric for home made baby wipes?

    I am wondering what fabric you used for homemade baby wipes?

    We have a heap of towels that are in good condition but quite small and we are replacing them. (they only about 12mth old)

    Was wondering if I could chop them up and use them for wipes?

    I saw the reuseable wipes for like $12 for 6 ...

    My only thought is they might be a little rough, I would personally use muslin cloth for homemade baby wipes.
    Maybe you could cut up the towels and make face washers with it?

    I agree that terry was too rough for my bubs. I used flannelette.
    I know some people have used terry though.

    Wet. I would just keep a small bowl of warm water on the change table and change after each use.

    Wet. I would just run it under the tap before a nappy change.
    In winter I would wet it then zap it in the microwave for afew seconds.
