Using reusable wipes in childcare settings

Cheeky Wipes - swap to save, guaranteed!
Here's 250,000 reasons for YOUR childcare setting to get involved!

More and more childcare settings are making the switch to reusable wipes whether they provide wipes, or families provide wipes.  It's great that you're considering getting on board and recognise there’s a simple alternative for your setting, staff and children in your care that will have tons of benefits for all:

  • Cleaning up is quicker and easier (and you need far fewer!)

  • No chemicals mean they’re much gentler for your little ones skin 

  • Big money savings to spend on more things that matter

  • Kinder to the environment as they help us reduce single use plastics

  • Encourages independence and helps to teach our little ones about ‘self-care’ which is part of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum

One recent happy customer at a nursery chain has gone from buying 250,000 wipes a year across all their sites to now just buying top ups of the essential oil soaking solutions!  Aside from the eco-benefits, that's a cost saving of between £3000 and £5000 a year, depending on the wipes you use!  Take a look at our childcare & nursery setting starter kit.
