Caring for your Micro-fibre hands & faces wipes
Tuesday, 11 December 2012 | Admin
It's brilliant that more and more of you are trying our micro-fibre wipes for hands & faces.
I have to say that since they arrived back in July, they have been the wipe of choice at Cheeky Wipes HQ at dinner and breakfast times as they are just SO soft!
However it's worth pointing out that you might need to tweak your soaking routine a little bit for the microfibre wipes....here's a few tips:
Increase amount of solution
If you're used to making up terry wipes with 250 ml water and 4 - 5 drops of oil, you'll probably need to adjust this for the microfibre wipes.
Because they're much more absorbent you might need as much as 400ml water (between the two lines on the outside of the fresh tub) and 6 - 7 drops of oil.
If the wipes aren't wet enough, they might start to smell a bit mouldy so this is an important one!
Rinse off any 'bits'
Because of the nature of microfibre, it will trap fibres which is why we don't recommend them for poo. If you're using them to clean a particularly mucky baby (porridge, weetabix and banana are all pretty hard-core for mess!) then simply rinse the wipe under the cold tap to remove any bits.
The wipes will wash really well if you do this and it will stop food getting on to your clothes in the washing machine - porridge is especially bad for this! We'd love to hear what you think of the microfibre wipes if you're using them already, feel free to leave us a comment!
