BABY WIPE POD - FLANNEL
The Reusable Baby Wipe Flannel Pod is a basic introduction to replacing standard wet wipes for a natural, chemical free option.
The only difference with the products in the entry level pod, is the type of fabric used for the reusable wet wipes - cotton flannel wipes instead of cotton towelling wipes. This however this is purely based on preference.
Our baby wipe pods are perfect ad-ons if you are already using or considering using cloth nappies.
Inside the Reusable Baby Wet Wipe Flannel Pod:
- Reusable Flannel Swab Baby Wipes - Pack of 8
- Organic Apricot Kernel Carrier Oil - 50 ml
- Spray Mist Bottle, with cap - 100 ml Glass or Aluminium
- Organic Rooibos Tea bags (10 off)
Why consider Flannel Baby Wipes?
Reusable baby wipes are ideal if you do not want to contribute to the landfill with the standard off the shelf wet wipes, and if you prefer a healthier chemical free and cost-effective alternative. There are lovely biodegradable single-use baby wipe options, but these tend to work out quite costly.
The Odd Pod reusable baby wipes are premium and handmade using high quality flannel, with a serged seam finish to ensure longevity. We have carefully selected the ideal size wipe to make it easier cleaning those baby bottoms or those sticky fingers and faces.
Why use Flannel instead of Microfibre? Microfibre may feel soft, but not nearly as absorbing and tends to cause smearing rather than cleaning properly. Flannel is smooth, soft, gentle and easy to wash.
If you prefer a thicker wipe, we recommend Odd Pod's 100% cotton towelling wipes as they are less bulky than face cloths and perfect for a quick clean while being gentle on your baby’s delicate skin.
How many reusable cloth baby wipes do you need? It all depends on your baby, but it is generally recommended to have a minimum of 24 wipes. This allows for washing and drying in between use.
For storing the used baby wipes, please have a look at the Odd Pod Reusable Washable Bin Liner Wet Bag. Make your life easier washing the bag and wipes in the same load.
Wipe Size: 15 cm x 15 cm (for a larger size please see our flannel Unpaper Towel or PP Paper)
Colours: Traditional White, Soft Blue, or Soft Pink. Also available in other lovely colours and creative designs.
Wash care: Wash in cold or warm water, with similar colours. The beauty with flannel is, the more you wash the more absorbent it gets. Softener may decrease absorbency and it is recommended to air dry, no ironing required.
Why have we included the Apricot Kernel Oil?
We are offering an easier and less messy alternative to soaking your cotton wipes in a mixture. Simply spray the Apricot Kernel carrier oil solution* directly onto your baby’s bum or onto the reusable cotton wipe. The spray mist bottle is conveniently included with the Flannel Baby Wipe Pod.
The 100% pure organic Apricot Kernel Carrier Oil is very gentle and therefore often used in baby products. Apricot Kernel Oil is known to soothe, moisturise and protect the skin due to its exceptionally high content of Vitamin A, C E & GLA. This lightweight oil deeply nourishes the skin without leaving a greasy residue.
Almond oil is also commonly used, but we have considered possible nut allergies your little one may have.
The Apricot Kernel Oil offers many other benefits too, popular for a calming baby/infant massage, or even a tiny drop added to a beauty skin treatment for mommy.
The Spray Bottle Solution* = Apricot Kernel Oil + Water + Rooibos Tea (quantity and instructions will be included)
