This is the same bamboo fabric that is used for all of MaMaJo's products (diaper inserts, prefolds, menstrual pads and nursing pads). As always, the bamboo fleece is extensively prewashed (3X) so you can start using them right away. No extra laundry for my MaMas!
Here is a set of generous 8 X 8 (approx) prewashed wipes. They have rounded corners and have been serged around the edges to prevent fraying. These are a soft, single layer wipe. The bamboo flleece side is soft, and the other is not but is perfect for picking up the messiest of sticky messes. This is a natural color material that has been minimally processed.
The wipes are super soft, great for baby's tender bottom (or for faces too)! Once you wash baby's bottom with cloth and water, you will never use harsh disposable wipes again. You will no longer be exposing your child to the chemicals in throw away wipes (just read the label)! You will also be saving lots of money and you will be doing your part to save our planet.
Just keep them in a baggie in a diaper bag, or a wipes container on the go. I love to keep mine in a wipe warmer at home- they get beautifully warm, making diaper changes a much happier time for baby.
If you would like some wipe solution recipes or ideas, LOOK HERE:
I like mixing my solutuion weekly and then putting a little in a wipes warmer- changing it every few days. Don't store solution or wet wipes for a long time because they can become musty and the wet wipes may even grow mildew.
To keep things very simple:
Just add a little tea tree oil to your wipes container and/or
Just add a little lavendar oil
+ Some people like to also add one drop of baby wash ( i personally dont- i prefer relying on the essential oil to clense versus soap- i keep soap only for the daily bath).

I make all of my products with lots of care in my green home. Absolutely no harsh chemicals are used, and we are a smoke free, pet free environment. My creations are all made with thread made in North America, and whenever possible, from fabric made in Canada too. I buy my cotton fleece from a little store around the corner, to encourage local business and to minimize transport. We are a very ecologically conscious family and work hard to minimize our carbon footprint. For other products, see www.mamajo.ca
