I think flannel is ok but I would personally only use it for one side of the wipes, I prefer something more 'scrubby' on the other side. My favourite is sherpa, then bamboo (terry or velour), then cotton terry. All would work as well, I just listed them in what I think feels nicest!
I am planning to make my own cloth baby wipes. I was thinking I would make them with flannel since it is nice and soft. I was planning to use just the flannel and water.
Is this a good idea? If there is something that would work better, what do you suggest?
I think it would work great. I've been using baby wash cloths and water. Those work great too. And if you want disposable, paper towels and water work too. There's really no reason for commercial diaper wipes.
I am hoping to be able to do re-usable rather than toss out. I know it is so much easier to toss things but I am really trying hard to cut back on it. I would love to do re-usable paper towels too but thanks to a pukey cat I find it hard to switch. Also, since we feed our dogs raw on the kitchen floor we use paper towels to clean up after them too. I need to do better!
Since I don't have a serger, do you think just a zig zag stitch on my sewing machine will be enough? I really can't justify my husband buying me a serger with a baby just around the corner and still many things to buy.
