Since I have now completely switched over to cloth diapers, I find it very irritating that I am forced to use a handful of disposable wipes to clean up the mess during every diaper change. I love using cloth diapers, both for my son’s benefit and for the environment’s, but when see how many disposable wipes I throw away each day, I can’t help but feel frustrated about the fact that even with my best efforts, I am still creating excessive waste.
Luckily, I learned about Hankettes, a fantastic company that offers organic cotton products such as cloth diapers, handkerchiefs and kitchen linens. Hankettes also carries an amazing collection of convenient natural kits, and I was delighted when I was given the chance to review the Travel Wet Wipes Kit so that I could eliminate my dependence on disposable wipes once and for all.
This adorable little kit contains three organic cotton flannel wipes and a 60ml spray bottle of Bum Bum Baby Wet Wipe Solution in a convenient zippered pouch. The wet wipe solution is an all-natural spray with skin soothing ingredients like lavender, witch hazel, tea tree oil and olive oil to clean and protect a baby’s delicate skin. The wipes were incredibly soft and were edged with gorgeous pale green stitching. When I next sat down to change Benjamin’s diaper, I pulled out the Travel Wet Wipes Kit eagerly. I sprayed one of the flannel wipes generously with the wet wipe solution and got ready to clean up my baby.
The first thing that I noticed about the Hankettes wet wipes was that they were the perfect size for diaper changes. The generous cut of the wipes meant that I only needed to use one to get Benjamin completely clean even with the biggest of messes. I also found that spraying the solution directly onto Benjamin’s bottom often worked better than trying to spray it onto the wipe, but that when he had any degree of diaper rash, a direct application of the spray seemed to sting him a little. I used the pre-application method for those times rather than risking upsetting my already squirmy baby!
When I was done with a wipe, I simply threw it into the diaper bag along with the soiled diaper and washed it with my next load of Benjamin’s diapers and inserts. The wipes always came out smelling fresh and clean, and retained every bit of their unbelievable softness.
Hankettes also carries wonderful kits for facial care, pregnancy and birthing, new mothers and even pets. The company’s combination of high quality organic cotton products and natural personal care items is a great way to maximize eco-friendly practices easily and affordably.
I am so happy with the Travel Wet Wipes Kit from Hankettes. It is wonderful for around the house, but the small size of the zippered pouch makes it perfect for the diaper bag as well. Soiled wipes are simply popped into a portable wet bag along with the diaper and added to the laundry bag when I return home. The wipes are also super for other types of emergency messes outside of the house. Sticky hands and faces on car trips or walks are no problem thanks to the Travel Wet Wipes Kit!
But what I love the most is the fact that I no longer need to spend money on disposable wet wipes that will immediately be thrown away after they are used. Instead, my baby is treated to the irresistible softness of organic cotton and I get the satisfaction of saving both my money and my environment. Diaper changes are a dirty job, but the sensational Hankettes wet wipes kits helps to ensure your baby will be all smiles when the job is done. Break the disposable wipe habit and check out Hankettes today!
