Bummas Cloth Wipes – Review & Giveaway 11/17

by Mama Chocolate on November 4, 2010

This giveaway is now *CLOSED*
Bummas sent me a set of their wipes to review!
First, here are some features of the wipes, as listed on the Bummas website:

  • Eliminates the use of talcum powder. 
  • 100% Cotton – Woven Velour Terry Cloth milled in the USA.  
  • Variety of color combinations for nursery themes.
  • Handy 5” x 7” size. Won’t pill, shrink, or fade.
  • Durable. Just throw them in the wash and use again.
  • They will last until your little one is out of diapers and beyond!     
  • Made in the USA

Bummas were primarily designed as a drying wipe…an alternative to talcum powders and ointments for preventing diaper rashes. A diaper rash will only get worse if you’re putting the clean diaper onto a still-wet bottom! 
Some babies have skin that is sensitive to ingredients in powders and ointments, and some powders and ointments aren’t good for our precious cloth diaper stashes! 
My Review:
I reviewed a set of the Tropical Ones…I love them! They have one side that is a terry cloth sort of material, (useful for the messy jobs!) and the other side is super soft for the drying jobs! 
I used them both as wet wipes and as drying wipes, and I have to say that my favorite use for them was the drying. They really did a good job and are much softer than most of my other wipes are when they are dry. Katie gets diaper rashes on a fairly regular basis…mostly from her fruit allergies, (strawberries, raspberries, peaches, oranges, mangoes, etc, etc.) She has come to really dislike diaper changes, partly because of her sore bottom, so I love having something to help take care of it so gently. It really makes a difference in her squirming and whining.
The only drawback I saw in these wipes is their unusual size, (5×7) which, though handy during actual use, causes them to not fit neatly stacked in my wipes container with the rest of my wipes. This is partly why I like them better as a drying wipe…I can just keep them in a separate stack for drying only, and that eliminates that problem.
I know a lot of people have different methods for using cloth wipes and water/solution also, so in some cases this wouldn’t even matter. (See my method.)
Another handy use for these wipes: Protecting oneself during your little boy’s diaper changes… :-) One wipe is supposed to be able to soak up one of those little fountains! I didn’t get to try this…since I don’t have a boy, (yet!) but I believe it! The wipes are nice and thick and absorbant!

Other great uses would include nose-wiping, napkins, and bath washcloths!

Bummas is giving away another set of the Tropical Ones to one of my lucky readers!
