    Default Fabric for home made baby wipes?

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