    Repeat customer, just as happy with my second order of these! Fun new set of fabrics too :-)

    Absolutely love these!! The fabric is perfect for the purpose - very soft but absorbent and strong, and the sewing is flawless and professional. They came in a variety of many super-cute designs, I love every one. It was all packaged so nice and thoughtfully as well. Very quick shipping. Well worth every penny for what I got!

    So I have interstitial cystitis, which means I am going to the bathroom significantly more than others. But it also means that my body is also more sensitive, I love how soft this is as an alternative to the scratchy toilet paper. And as someone on a delicate septic it stops me from filling my garbage as well. They arrived much sooner than I expected. They are made of quality fabric and small enough that I can fold one up stick it in my purse and stow it along with my reusable pads. It's just one more step to sustainable living. 😍☺️

    Love these Tinkle Towels! They were exactly what I was looking for. The material and construction are top quality. Plus, you get to look at a different pretty pattern each time you go.

    I am going on a 490-mile thru-hike, and decided to try something different. These towels are excellent quality, and the seller is so sweet and helpful. I am super easy about the design, but she asked what I'd prefer, I gave her a couple of ideas and and sent me exactly what I had asked for, with a little note. I'll absolutely buy from her again, these are so great!

    Wonderful colors and patterns. I love the idea if using less to no paper towels. The quality is great.

    Received Tinkle Towel set in my chosen colors quickly. Well-made. Soft flannel is absorbent and they have held up well to repeated laundering.

    I love these Tinkle Towels! They are very high quality, beautiful patterns and colors, and they matched the description very well. The shop owner, Amelia, reached out to me to get an idea of what types of patterns or colors I liked and she did not disappoint! They were made quickly and shipped very fast in great eco friendly packaging. I have only just started to use them, but so far, so good! Thank you, Amelia!

Handmade functional art for zero waste livin'

Hey there, I'm Amelia! I create from my little studio in Eugene, Oregon. I also sell my creations at the Eugene Saturday Market! The idea for Tinkle Towels came to me in 2017 when a friend and I tried using an old cut up T-shirt for our tinkles instead of T.P. We radically reduced our T.P. consumption (and costs!) and I was hooked! But I knew I could sew something way cuter and more durable than our thin little t-shirt squares. So I borrowed my Mom's serger and went to work. It took a few years but I learned how to sew well and have since developed high quality, durable, functional towels that can fully replace T.P. if you also get a bidet. I did my research and found out it takes ~37 gallons of water to make just 1 roll of toilet paper. And Americans spend about 12k just on T.P. in over a lifetime! The benefits of making this choice are clear to me - it's nicer for our bodies, it saves so much money, it's better for the earth, it saves water, and - it's fun! Kids love 'em because they're cute and fun to use. If we teach children lifestyle choices such as not flushing trees down the toilet in our homes, they grow up with earth-based values and resource-mindfulness. I really think everything we do matters, and if we do the best we can in our homes to reduce our waste, we start solving a big human problem that belongs to all of us. It won't happen overnight, or even in 1 generation. But I think we've got to do something, so that's why I'm building my little business! I also just love coming up with creative ideas and seeing what happens. Thanks for considering the earth with your purchases, and doing your part to become educated and make the changes you can make that suit your lifestyle!

    I love small changes that make a big difference. That's why I started Tinkle Towels! Not only do Tinkle Towels save trees because they never run out, but they save you money because you can wash and re-use them again and again!
