Non-toxic, convenient, useful for even non-parents.
on August 18, 2012
We got these dry wipes to use with water (in squeeze bottles) to clean during diaper changes, and the hospital we gave birth at did the same.
Despite companies like BabyGanics "suggesting" their wipes are organic, their wipes are full of chemicals known to cause cancer in REPRODUCTIVE organs during lab testings. Where are these wipes meant to be used on??
Of course, lab testing may involve excess amounts of a given chemical, but since plain water does a fine job of cleaning with these soft wipes (and no added perfume), why use potentially toxic chemicals?
In any case, these wipes are fantastic. They're soft and absorbent, don't rip or pill, yet wipe away your baby's unwelcome gifts easily and cleanly. Note that the wipes are folded in quarters (half, then half again), not as single-ply as in the picture. I usually fold it once again for diaper duty, so it works out fine.
I've actually also taken to using these wipes as makeshift bibs (much easier to fold these half-under the collar, then toss after spit-ups, rather than constantly wash a limited number of bibs which don't even cover the sides properly), as bathing cloths (1 sheet holds up through entire bath, and then some), as burp cloths, as general cleaning cloths (much better than paper towels, which pill and rip), as coasters that don't stick to glasses/bottles, etc. I'll definitely keep a supply for misc use, even after our babies have grown up.
In 2 months with our newborn (and miscellaneous uses above), we've gone through almost 2.5 boxes (500 wipes per box) already, but I'm a bit anal and unnecessarily use 2-4 wipes per diaper change, so YMMV (figure 1 box per month). Each box contains 10 plastic packs of 50 wipes.
FYI, I've had 3 separate orders (1, 4, & 2 boxes, respectively) via the seller "Corydor" (Prime, Fulfilled by Amazon), but the orders show as having been sold/shipped from "YGM". No issues with any of the shipments.
I also recommend buying a bunch of chux (aka: blue pads, wee wee pads) to put under the baby during diaper changes / potential spit-ups:
