So I’ve been talking about my journey with cloth diapering over the past few months. One thing that we started doing long before using cloth diapers, though, was using cloth wipes (except for poop, and we still haven’t become brave enough to use them for poopy diapers!). Cloth wipes are such a great economical choice, as is a wipes solution. We have most definitely gotten our money’s worth out of our wipes, and then some. Since we started using cloth wipes in November, we’ve purchased maybe 2 or 3 packages of disposable wipes, which is awesome!
I want to welcome back a business that I’ve featured on Stuff Parents Need, because they have a new product that is ideal for cloth wipe users. BareBebe is a store that offers a wonderful variety of products for your home and your little one, all with the quality and style kept in mind! BareBebe’s newest product is from their PureBebe line, and it is unique, economical and oh-so-useful. If you use cloth wipes, then you know that the biggest drawback to them is having to make the wipe solution every few days. It’s not enough of a hurdle to make me not want to use cloth wipes, but it is kind of annoying. But not anymore! Alison, the owner, has created these amazing Super Stars that have everything you need for your wipes…just add hot water! Now instead of making the mix myself, I just drop one star into 8 ounces of really hot water, and let it dissolve. Done! And while my own solution didn’t smell bad, this stuff smells GREAT! I received Super Stars in the rain scent. Oh, it is such a delightful smell…fresh, clean and calm. That’s exactly what my home is like (if only in my head!).
My old mix had canola oil, baby shampoo and baby lotion in it. I just kept those bottles on my kitchen counter since I used them frequently. The Super Stars are in a small canvas pouch and take up so little space. They help make my kitchen less cluttered, and anything that can help out with that disaster area is awesome. Also, I confess that I was using Johnson & Johnson products to make my own solution…that stuff is LOADED with questionable chemicals, and I was wiping it all over my baby’s most sensitive areas! PureBebe’s Super Stars are made with the following ingredients: coconut oil, palm oil, safflower oil, glycerine (kosher), aloe vera gel, purified water, sodium hydroxide, sorbitol, soy bean protein, essential oils (if chosen), fragrance oils (if chosen). This is all stuff I can recognize and pronounce.
In addition to using this solution for baby wipes, you can also use it as a natural hand sanitizer. Just pour it into a spray bottle and you are good to go! Since there are no dyes or harsh chemicals in the stars, there’s no need to worry if your little one puts her hands in her mouth right after you wipe them down.
I was also sent two precious cloth wipes, one with a transportation theme, and the other with love birds in trees. I really love Alison’s cloth wipes because they are very sturdy. They are made with bamboo velour and cotton flannel, so they are super soft, but also ready to tackle those bigger messes. Having these wipes is giving me the courage to use cloth wipes full-time, even for the you-know-what diaper changes, because I know they will actually work! She offers these wipes in a set of 4 for $8.50, and she has many beautiful prints from which to choose.
Alison gets her inspiration for the products she offers from her family. She is mom to 3 girls, all under 5! BareBebe provides a way for her to share the solutions she has created for her own family over the past few years. And we all know that moms come up with the BEST ideas! Check out her wool dryer balls, pail freshener, and adorable pacifier clips! There are so many great things to choose at BareBebe, but let me strongly encourage you to go ahead and take the plunge if you are thinking about trying out cloth wipes. These PureBebe Super Stars and cloth wipes are stellar, in my opinion, and the prices are more than fair.
