BabyKicks Washies

When we first made the switch to cloth diapers we still used disposable wipes. After a few weeks of separating them from the diapers and always ending up with a least one in the wash we made the decision to switch to cloth wipes. Being the DIYer that I am and wanting to save money I cut up some extra receiving blankets and started using those. They work, although sometimes I have to use several, but they are not the best and sometimes we resort to disposable wipes again. When I became a BabyKicks Ambassador I knew I wanted to try their Washies in hopes of finding the perfect wipe. I am so thankful that they sent a pack of 10 to me this month to review.

When they arrived I was surprised at the size, my homemade ones are so much smaller. The Washies are oval in shape with a soft fleece side and a knit jersey side.  The fleece side is so soft, it is the same fleece they use in their Hemparoo Prefolds, and the jersey side is soft but grabby, perfect for really difficult messes.  I love how thick and absorbent these wipes are.  We use a peri bottle for our homemade wipe solution and when I would squirt it on my homemade wipes it would immediately soak through to my hand., with the BabyKicks Washies my hands stay dry. We have really put these to the test not only on the changing table but also in the bathtub and at the dining room table. They have held up so well and still look new.

Having cloth diapered for almost two years now I definitely recommend using cloth wipes. It makes wash time easier and it saves additional money. BabyKicks Washies are a great product to start with. They really are top notch and they are handmade in the USA which makes them even better. You can find Washies at the BabyKicks website or your favorite cloth diaper retailer.
