How do you do baby wipes with your CD's?¬† Until I can borrow my MIL's serger to make the wipes I want, I have a stack of soft baby washcloths to use.¬†
¬†I made ~40 two-layer cloth wipes out of flannel and sewn together with my sewing machine.¬† We got a wipe warmer as a gift and keep some wipes in there with water only.¬† The wipes are 8" x 8" and fit in there folded in half.¬† It works well!¬† I wash the used wipes with my diapers and have never had a problem.
I use paper towels (Bounty or Brawny....Viva tends to mold if not used right away) I cut the roll in half.¬† I put half in a rubbermaid container about that size.¬† I mix about 2 cups of water with a tablespoon of olive oil and a tablespoon of soap (Dr. Bronners baby soap) and pour over the towels ( standing on end).¬† After 5 minutes I turn the roll over, pull out the brown paper in the middle and they are ready to go!¬† Keep a lid on to keep moist! So cost effective and better for his little bum....and disposable!
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
When I was more hard core, I used to only use cloth wipes. Now I use 7th Generation wipes for super messy poos.
I have made the ones from paper towels with my dd.¬† Those work great!¬† I was thinking cloth wipes so I could throw them in with the CD's.¬† Although I vaguely remember picking out regular wipes from ds's CD laundry pile (it's been a while!) on occasion.
I found a few recipes using tea tree oil and olive oil and a small amount of soap.¬†
My favorite wipes are two sided: flannel sewn to micro-terry or sherpa.¬† The texture works great for wiping poop and the soft flannel is nice for patting dry.¬† I prefer to use wipe solution in a spout top bottle than a wipe container/warmer.¬† I just picked up a few 8oz bottles at a massage supply store (some natural grocery stores have them, too) and make my own solution with aloe vera gel, Dr. Bronner's soap, EO's and water.

I started with flannel wipes that I made (two layers) but I really love sherpa/cotton velour wipes. I like 8 by 8 inches, if folded in half they fit wonderfully into wipe warmers or containers. I either just wet them with water or add tea tree oil/calendula oil/aloe vera to the mix or pumpkin butt cubes. I first bought them from small wonder wipes but then made my own. Sherpa is great at grabbing poop, I mostly ever just need one wipe to clean everything up.
A good source for material is naturesfabric.com, google their facebook discount code to get 10 or 15 % off I think. They carry sherpa and velour in the cutest prints (ooga booga, giraffes, and so on!). Serging sherpa and velour is nice and easy and won't fray!
We just use the baby faceclothes.¬† They are cheap, thin enough to get into all the crevices and we wash them with the diapers.¬† Plus we got a ton for our shower.
