Here it is simple and sweet: take the same amount of time to fold up your reusable cloth wipes in a way that makes them easy to pull out like tissues. I consider this sort of knowledge powerful, you never know a scenario where you may use this. Of course I mean outside of cloth diapering. So others out there like me - read on! (And for all of you out there who already do that - yay you!)
I have been cloth diapering since Jack was born which brings me nearly to one and a half years of also using cloth wipes. How did I not know it was doing it wrong? Of course I questioned the insanity of folding facecloths in neat little piles only to have Jack terrorize them into a tornado of whirling distraction while I change his diaper. I also think that this method can be applied to other things like cloths for washing dishes (provided they aren't too thick).
I would have typed out my own description with pictures but it would basically be the EXACT same as this one - so just check it out here! They have an easy and colourful Step by Step.
To do this you will need a reusable wipe container which is relatively cheap and I use some baby facecloths (huge packs of them at department stores for cheap) and bamboo cloth. You can pre-wet them if you choose or do dry ones. I think in an ideal world it would be perfect to have one of each and perhaps one day this week I'll remember to buy another reusable wipe container haha.
|Here mine are all folded up and ready to go ...|
Just remember that it is SO easy to pull them out. Keep little hands away or you will be folding them up all over again!
|And here mine fly as I try to snap some pictures...|
|... of course by the fist full.. gah!|
