Toilet Paper Alternative Family Cloth Wipes Kit

I was extremely suspicious that this would be gross, but after eharing about it on radio 2, my husband wouldn't stop talking about it, and since we're planning to use reusable nappies for our hopefully-arriving-soon baby I thought we'd give it a go. We love them, they feels great and make the bathroom smell good, Would recommend to give it a go, especially after seeing that article in the BBC news about the 250 fat berg of toilet paper they found under London!

I was definitely one of those ewww! people. But having started using the sani pads recently (and wished I had found them years ago) and then hearing you on Radio 2 I thought I'd give the toilet set a go. It took a while for me to unpack the parcel and start to use it (still at the squeamish stage) but everything is so well thought out, even the way the mesh bag fits into the mucky box and the smells from the added scented oils are great and so refreshing. So now I can say I have used it for a number 2 as well as number 1 and am delighted with how easy it is and how fresh I feel. There's nothing more annoying than paper that tears when you're wiping, and this eliminates all that. I am new to this and haven't washed them yet but it all seems to be going very smoothly. I have now ordered some of the rainbow cloths to replace my cleaning cloths and kitchen paper. Final step is to convince the rest of the family! So glad I found this product!

I am so impressed with the quality of these wipes. Trying to talk my husband round to using reusable wipes (already use reusable nappies) was a bit tricky but once they arrived and I showed him how they work he thinks they're fantastic ! I bought the full kit and additional wipes to keep in the bathroom as facial wipes. I keep a wet bag in my handbag for out and about, a box in the kids room and facial wipes in the bathroom. I didn't realise how well 25 wipes would do (I bought a total of 65) so I've been able to keep some aside for when our third baby arrives. 25 wipes is all I have had to use for my two messy Boys, I wash them every other day to freshen them up but even then I don't always go through the whole 25 as even for the stinkiest bums I only need one !! I've had some real messy ones and no 'pong' from them after washing and the mucky box stops them from stinking out the house perfectly, in fact the mucky box doesn't even smell when I open it that's to the essential oils. I've been raving about these to everyone even for facial wipes for those without children. Once baby #3 is born I also plan to try the reusable feminine products. Using these is so easy (and cheap!). I was spending a fortune on water wipes. Very long review I know but these really are fantastic !

Well initially I was a little grossed out by the idea of this but had recently bought some cloth sanitary pads (sorry, not CW) elsewhere as I was fed up of buying so many TENA let alone filling the bin and landfill with them, I was so pleasantly surprised at how nice they were and my friend had been raving about how great CW were for her kids that I decided I would take the adult version plunge! Toilet Paper Alternative. I've had to pack them away for a few weeks while my bathroom is being renovated (I didn't want my lovely wipes and boxes to be covered in dust, muck and dirt!) and I miss them so much!!! I can honestly say once the bath room is finished there will be no going back! You feel so fresh! You only need one wipe per visit whether you're doing a "number 2" or just a pee. Not having to buy loads of toilet paper and flushing so much down the toilet is just a bonus!! Like some others have commented the mucky box is a bit small for using as a toilet paper alternative but I love the system and that the mucky box even has a scent too! I might look into the idea that others have suggested of a pedal bin with the mesh bag as the bag is much bigger than the mucky wipes box. I love all the different scents and bought them all to try. I also got some flannel wipes for hands and face and use the rose and geranium oil with a bit of the coconut oil for them. Lovely! I've got dermatitis on my hands and they just love the coconut oil!
Hurry up workmen, I want to use my cheeky wipes again!
An item every woman should have (several of, actually)

In my search of trying to be more eco-friendly I am so glad I came across these pads! If anything I should have bought more, and I certainly will. Very comfortable, do the job and easy to wash. Perfect!
Weetabix and hummus remover!

Yep these even get hummus and weetabix off my son's face/hands/arms/feet etc...
Much softer on his face too.
Better than expected

I was a little apprehensive about trying cloth sanitary towels. My periods are heavy and I routinely had to use night time disposables throughout my period. I bought the starter pack which only has one night time pad so I did wonder if it would be a disaster. I needn't have worried. The pads are pretty (I got mixed patterns) and super soft. They feel comfortable to wear and no slippage if you take care to check that the nap is in the right direction and knickers are well fitting. No leaking problems and the day time pad coped fine. Washing out was simple and they come up as new. I used a little bit of vanish and washed on a cold setting. They take a while to dry so the starter pack wasn't big enough to get me through my whole period but I'm so pleased with the towels that I've ordered some more. Being environmental is a bonus.

I just love these towels. They are so comfy. I have endometriosis so need to wear them everyday. Disposable towels were literally making me miserable, so uncomfortable and itchy. But these are a game changer. Also I have fibromyalgia and am very sensitive to things on my body. So I can't thank you enough. I have various sizes. I hand wash them and they come up like new. ( cold water mind!)

I thought the normal wipes were soft but these are something else! Using on newborn skin without the oils and a million times easier than cotton wool.
Perfect fabric for little hands and faces

This is a handy little kit for weaning, especially if you're following baby-led approaches or if little one is a fan of finger foods. Microfibres are the perfect all round cloth for this, pick up the dirt - no matter how sticky - yet they're soft and gentle on baby's skin. The number of wipes I'm saving from landfil is just an added bonus!
