Make Your Own Cloth Toilet Wipes

For those of you who want more information about what the whole cloth toilet wipes thing is all about, you can read my post here: Ready for Cloth Wipes?.

If you are interested in an easy way to make your own wipes, you can do what I did this week. My mom happened to find a couple of flannel baby blankets at the local dollar store.

After washing them, I simply used my pinking shears to cut them into squares that were about 7 inches square. Using pinking shears will help keep the edges from raveling. I could also have sewn a serged or zig-zag edge on the squares, but using the pinking shears was much quicker.

I ended up with 16 cloth wipes from each blanket - a total of 32 wipes from 2 little blankets that only cost $1.00 each.

If you don't have access to flannel blankets like these, you can look for flannel sheets or some people even use packages of shop towels that are nice and soft.
