As a mom, I've been able to improvise or find "just the right" products for most of my "mom jobs." :) Usually I'm looking for products that are safe, affordable, re-usable, etc. There is one thing though that I've never been satisfied with - and that is disposable wipes and wash cloths. To put it simply, store-bought disposable wipes have some chemicals, etc. in them that I'd rather not use on my children. But for travelling, camping, etc. I do resort to using them. And wash cloths...we use these all the time for wiping faces and keeping our 2 munchkins clean - but really - after a few weeks of wiping up food, milk and who knows what else...they STINK. And no matter how much you wash them...the stink stays. I don't know about you, but I sure wouldn't like to get my face wiped with a stinky washcloth after every meal. ;) Recently we discovered the solution to these 2 problems - Wysi Wipes. WOW! And I mean...WOW! Wysi Wipes creates biodegradable, durable, hypoallergenic, pure, 100% natural wipes made of cellulose. They are amazing! The first mind-boggling thing about these wipes is that they come compressed into a teeny tiny compact 3/4 inch wide package, yet as soon as you add water it immediately expands into a perfectly sized 9x10 inch wipe, which is just the right size to get the face cleaned, the bum cleaned, or anything else that you might need to wipe or wash! They are small enough to store in your overflowing diaper bag, your pocket, your glove department, etc. We recently tried our Wysi Wipes and Wysi Cloths while travelling for several hours in the van. They were perfect for cleaning up after lunch, washing hands with, and more. I was impressed to say the least. BUT my love for the wipes went up a a couple hundred notches when I realized that, after leaving the damp Wysi Wipe sitting in my diaper bag for an entire week, it did not stink at all. Wysi Wipes allow for no cross contamination and no bacteria growth whatsoever. We also tried the Wysi Cloth. These are basically the same idea, except they expand into a full size cloth instead of just a wipe. The Wysi Cloth is big enough be used as a hand towel, and has as many uses as the wipes.
Wysi Wipes and Cloths can be used virtually anywhere! In the kitchen, bathroom, camper, van, school bus, at work, at home, in the garage...you name it! They are disposable and will cause no harm to the environment when disposed, yet they are also reusable and can be rinsed and reused many times. They are incredibly useful, and I can guarantee you that this is one of the products that I'll be purchasing more of once we run out!
Wysi Wipes is giving one of our readers a GREAT prize package including 2 bags of Wysi Wipes (100 ct), 2 bags of Wysi Wipes (12 ct Travel Pack) and 2 rolls of the Wysi Cloth (10 ct)!!
