What size do you prefer? Why?

I am about to cut up some fabric and make my own wipes, but I'm not sure about the size. The wipes we have (the really nice ones) are pretty big, but I always end up getting half of it dirty and not being able to use the rest of the wipe, so I was thinking maybe if I made them smaller, they would get used completely with only one wiping, and then I would have more, right?

Thanks for your help, ladies

Believe it or not, I think it depends on your wiping style.

For poop, I prefer a 5x10 because I try to get it all up in one wipe. I use the corners and fold and fold and fold until not a single spot of the wipe is clean before I will grab another.

On the other hand, I have a friend who likes to do one swipe, grab a clean wipe, do another swipe, etc. For her, 5x8 are probably better.

Maybe you could make some in different sizes and see what works best for you before you use up the rest of your fabrics?

I have 8x8 velour/sherpa wipes. www.preciousdignity.com I love these wipes! And the mama is great to work with. We use those for days when baby is a little pink or for baths. They are fuzzy and soft!

Our main stash are Liz cloth hemp wipes, one layer. After washing they are about 7x7. Used for majority of our diaper changes. I love these wipes too! They wash up great. Purchased at www.diaperware.com

I like having a variety. That way I can switch it up depending on what I need.
