As an Incredimom, I have gotten the chance to try a wide range of Incredibum products. I love their diapers and their gigantic, reversible wet bags. I also love their Bum-boo Wipes! Now that is something I didn't expect. You see, while we do cloth diaper, we don't usually use cloth wipes. My husband insists on disposable wipes, and says that reusing wipes is crossing some invisible line in his head.
So naturally, when my Incredibum Bum-boo wipes arrived, he was a bit less than enthusiastic. I was excited, though. You see, I will use cloth wipes on occasion, I just don't have too many of them due to my husband's aversion to them.
While I am not an expert when it comes to cloth wipes, I did notice immediately that the Bum-boo wipes are much different than the other cloth wipes I have seen. First, they're HUGE! They measure a whopping 9"x9"! These are larger than even the disposable wipes I am used to using. The size is wonderful, since it pretty much eliminates the chances of getting any nasty baby goo on your hands when dealing with a blow-out!
Another thing I noticed right away is that these wipes are super thick and incredibly soft. Bum-boo wipes are made from a 90% bamboo 10% polyester blend that is luxurious to the touch and gentle on baby's delicate skin. Sore butts are no fun, and for the baby with sensitive skin, these wipes are amazing. My son, Xander, is very prone to rashes and needs a more delicate touch. These wipes fit the bill perfectly! Since they're also very thick, I have found that these wipes don't allow messes to seep all the way through, getting on your hands.
Another plus? The bamboo! Not only is bamboo a sustainable, quickly growing plant, it also contains natural antimicrobial properties. This allows a parent to get their baby's skin truly clean. I have to say, bamboo is one of my favorite materials, and I love the fact that Incredibum recognizes this and uses it in their diapers and wipes.
These wipes also hold up very well after many washes. We have used them many, many times, and they are still brand new looking, without a single loose stitch. I think they're even softer now than when they arrived. Washing them is simple, too. Warm Machine Wash and line or tumble dry low. No fabric softener, no bleach, and please limit barrier creams that are not cloth diaper friendly. This can decrease absorbency and cause repelling.
While I still haven't gotten my husband on board for making the switch to cloth wipes, he does like the Bum-boo wipes. You see, they're multi-functional. While he refuses to wipe the baby's butts with them, he has used them as baby washcloths in the bath, as well as to wipe down their toys and highchairs. I am always finding new uses for our Bum-boo wipes! They're durable, thick, and ultra-absorbent. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great, eco-friendly alternative to baby wipes.
