Bumgenius Cloth Wipes

Flannel Wipes

These wipes are extremely soft and stay soft wash after wash. They are one layer of flannel serged around the edges. They come in packages of 12 and in a couple of colors. They clean up well and work well in a wipes warmer or wipes container. Only downside: they get caught on velcro in the dryer and get “softened” up.

Bamboo Terry Wipes

These wipes are great~! First of all, I love knowing that bamboo has naturally antimicrobial properties and that they are a renewable resource. They are soft and single-sided terry. The loops are great for messy clean-ups and you can choose to use the smooth side as well. The only down side is that they don’t look as perfectly square after they’re washed, but it doesn’t affect their functionality at all. I feel like they work better for messy diapers than the flannel wipes, are soft on baby’s bottom and stack nicely when folded in half. The only con is that they lose their square shape slightly after they are washed.

    I LOVE the Bum Genius bamboo wipes! They are so soft and thick AND so much better than any other wipes I've tried. I can never go back to disposable wipes now :)
