Since I started cloth diapering, I always wanted to try cloth wipes. Recently, I was given the opportunity to try out wipes from SMQ Organics.
SMQ Organics is a mom owned and crafted Etsy shop that specializes in organic handcrafted baby items, including crib sheets, washcloths, cloth wipes, and blankets.
- Wipes in Organic Cotton, Soy and Rayon from Bamboo.
- These wipes are good for your baby and good for the planet. They are luxuriously soft and will not irritate baby's delicate newborn skin.
- Can also be used for Cleaning, Dirty Faces or Runny Noses.
- Hypoallergenic so they are great for babies with eczema.
- Machine wash & dry.
- Handmade in Canada.
For review I was sent a set of green wipes. Upon touching the wipes they were very soft and a really good size. Included with the wipes was a letter explaining what they are made of, as well as two different recipes for homemade wipes solution. Since I didn't have any tea tree oil on hand, I decided to use a very simple variation of one of the recipes.
I combined: 1 tablespoon baby oil 2 teaspoons baby wash (or baby shampoo) 2 1/2 cups water and poured over the wipes that were in a plastic baby wipes container. Then I just swished them around a bit and then were ready to go! Baby A was happy to oblige by providing me with a very stinky diaper shortly after, so I could try the wipes out. With disposable wipes, it feels like we easily use 6-8 wipes with her stinky diapers, but with these cloth wipes, I only had to use two! Baby A also has problems with diaper rash and sensitive skin, so disposable wipes often irritate her skin and hurt her, but with these wipes that was not a problem as they are made with organic materials and no chemicals.
Overall, the wipes were easy to use, soft and gentle on her skin. When I was finished, I just tossed them in with the cloth diapers in my wetbag and then were ready to wash with the next load of diapers. I don't think it could get easier than that! The only tip I have is to pre-wash your wipes alone or they will run onto your diapers if placed next to them when wet.
