FAQ's: My washable wipes smell musty, HELP!

Tuesday, 17 November 2009  |  Admin

Don't worry if your washable wipes smell musty. Don't get me wrong, they shouldn't do, but simply by tweaking your washing / soaking routine we can fix it.
Tip no1: Check your oil / water quantities soaking ratio
For every 25 Cheeky Wipes, you'll need approx 400 - 500 ml of cold water (depending on whether you've just taken them from the machine, or if they've been dried) and about 4 - 5 drops of fresh wipes oil. Not adding enough oil is the most common cause of mustiness because the essential oils are mildly anti-bacterial and help preserve your wipes.
Tip no2: Check your washing frequency
Although we've taken our Cheeky Wipes (soaked in the mucky wipes oil solution!) to Glastonbury where they were fine in the box for 4 days, this isn't really recommended. You'll usually have a wash going on every couple of days at least, so just chuck your wipes in every time you have a wash going on - every other day is ideal Even if you have some 'fresh' wipes unused you can still wash them to freshen them up before starting over.
Tip no3: If all else fails....
If you've left your wipes in your fresh (or mucky wipes) bags and forgotten about them what then? Well, try washing the wipes on their own with a cup of white vinegar. That should do the trick but you might need 2 washes....
