Lapsaky Organic Cotton Jersey Wipes:

Organic wipes made by recycling leftovers from Lapsaky’s clothes production. Made in USA. Very excited about these since they are the only colored organic cotton wipes I’ve found! These are my favorite “wet wipes”. They are much thinner then the Little Beetle wipes mentioned below, but that’s what I like about them. You can easily fold many of them in a container, mix aloe and tea-tree oil and pour over the wipes, and you’ll have the softest wet wipes ever. These are on the expensive side, but compared to using disposables, it’s cheap! About $18 for 6 organic wipes. They hold up nice in laundry too.

Little Beetle Organic Cotton Velour Wipes:

I absolutely love the softness of these wipes, 2 layers with the softest organic cotton velour. You can use a spray bottle to spray on baby or the wipes to make your own “wet wipes” without any chemicals. Some people put cloth wipes in a wet wipe-warmer with some water and aloe vera to make warm wipes both for their babies and as “toilet paper”. Others put warm water in a thermos that they use on the wipes to make them warm. In any case, if you’re doing cloth diapers, why not do washable wipes? I like these wipes better dry then soaking them, because they are so absorbent (but they have also stained the easiest out of the wipes I tried). About $16 for 10 really thick nice organic wipes. Made in USA.

Imse Vimse Organic Flanelette Wipes:

I LOVE how these stay so nice wash after wash. They tend to not stain, and come out of the laundry in good shape (not all wrinkled and crooked like some cloths I tried). The price is great too, about $10 for 12 organic wipes. They are a bit stiffer then the Lapsaky wipes, but about the same size and thickness. I use these together with the Lapsaky wipes and make my own wet wipes and “toilet paper”. To replace disposable paper products in your home is one of the easiest and most satisfying ways to contribute to the environment and your better well being. Still trying to find where these are made…

Elsie’s Original All Natural Baby Bum Wipes 

These disposables have all organic ingredients, but the cotton is not organic. All ingredients and supplies are made in USA, and the wipes are partially biodegradable made from 30% post consumer and 30% recycled material. Ingredients: Pure Distilled Water (contains no bacteria), Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil, Organic Lavender Essential Oil, Organic Chamomile Essential Oil, and Vitamin E Oil.

Natracare Baby Wipes: 

The only organic cotton disposable baby wipes I have found, but the ingredients are not as pure as I had hoped, really disappointed. I usually only list what I feel is the best and was hesitant to list these, but the Elsie’s wipes are really expensive, and these are available in many local health food stores, plus they are made of organic cotton. Ingredients: Aqua, Olus, Glycerin, Lauryl Glucoside, Polyglyceryl 2 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Prunus Armeniaca (Organic Apricot Oil), Levulinic Acid, Perfume, Sodium Levulinate, Terpineol, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, Chamomilla Recutita (Organic Chamomile), Maltodextrin, Tilia Cordata (Organic Linden), Tocopherol, Potassium Sorbate, Glyceryl Oleate, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Sodium Citrate

 

I wish Natracare organic wipes would have Elsie’s ingredients! For the price of disposable wipes, they are almost crazy to use. Organic cloth wipes are so nice and easy to wash, but I understand disposables have their place.

    Sckoon make an organic cotton waterproof diaper cover, they say the way it is woven prevents leakages, I find wool covers do a great job
