At last! I am finishing my DIY series on homemade cloth baby wipes. Today I will share with you the super easy no sew way to make your own simple cloth baby wipes. Seriously, this is so easy! I started making these after researching what was in my daughters conventional disposable wipes. You can read more about that here. You can make these for next to nothing. I used old receiving blankets we were no longer using and also a few I found while thrifting (old ones are expecially good because they are super soft).
What you need:
Old flannel receiving blanket(s)
Step 1: Decide how big you want your wipes. Since we EC, we don’t have a ton of clean up so ours our approximately 4″x5″. *NOTE* If you choose to use these on the go, you might measure your wipe case so that they fit properly.
Step 2: Simply measure out all of your squares on the back side of your blanket.
Step 4: Wash and dry your wipes and trim/pull off all loose threads. You could also hem the edges, but I chose not to and after the first few washes they stopped shedding threads.
Step 5: Use in conjunction with Homemade Natural Wipe Solution for a clean tushie every potty break or diaper change.
Below is a photo of a few of the wipes I have been using in heavy rotation in our home for the past year. They are not the most beautiful wipes, but they have held up quite well for no sew if you ask me. And really, you are wiping butts with them so how pretty do they really need to be?
