My sister got a Prince LionHeart Warmies Wipe Warmer and the bamboo cloth wipes that go in it. The instructions tell you how to make a wipes solution to keep them dampened so that you can pull out pre-dampened warm wipes. I made my own cloth wipes that are one side terry and one side flannel and measure approximately 5X8 inches. They fit into a Huggies wipes box, and they will fit into a wipes warmer.
The problem is this: I'm trying to save money, not go spend more, and the Cloth Wipe Warmer says it has this anti-microbial stuff in it to keep your wipes from molding. So, do I need one? Or can I get a disposable wipes warmer without the anti-microbial stuff? Or can I just throw my cloth wipes into a Huggies box I already have and pour the solution over them? Will they mold if I do that?
Right now I'm using the wipes solution in a spray bottle and moistening the wipes each time I need one, but it takes quite a few sprays to get the wipe wet enough and my little one is just starting to get into the wriggle and flipping over stage, so I need to be quick! It's just not working for me anymore and I need another method. What do y'all do? By the way, I could really care less is the wipes are warm or not...it never bothered either of my kids to have a cold wipe on their bottom. I just want a place I can store them pre-moistened.
Also, this would work at home, but what do y'all do on the go?
