Many have asked me what I use for my cloth wipes. In the past, I have used a peri bottle, spray bottle, glass jar, wipes warmer, and a bowl.
Any of these WILL work, but here are the things that kept me going right back to plain water and not using my neato wipes solution
Peri Bottle: After a while the pull-open, push-close spout got too gunky, and it wasn’t easy to close. Peri bottles are very flimsy, so I’d always find myself squirting it accidentally, or over squirting. Also, they’re not that big, and I always had to refill it half way through the day. It was easier just to wet the wipe under the faucet.
Spray Bottle: It never fails. Put something more than plain water in a spray bottle, and it eventually gunks up and stop spraying. You know what I’m talking about. It’s happened to you, too. Back to plain tap water.
Glass Jar: What a pain to unscrew the lid, and the make sure, while the baby is rolling around that the lid is threaded right to close for a tight seal. Drop. Break. Back to the tap.
Wipes Warmer: While great for the newborn stage, let’s get realistic. After a few months, your little doesn’t care if that wipe is hot or cold. He/She just wants a clean rear so that play can resume. THere’s also the fact that it would have to be cleaned out every couple of days because of the funk of bacteria growth. I don’t have time for all that… or I’m too lazy for it. Sink.
Bowl: Just a dumb idea with 4 kids and your diaper station where you charge your phone, kindle, have a lamp, etc. H20.
Here’s what I use! It’s a cleaned out Ecover Cream Scrub (or dish soap) Bottle!
Check this out though. This is why I love my re-purposed wipes solution bottle!
