Disclaimer: I was sent a Cheeky Wipes Mini Kit and some make up wipes in return for an honest review. The review words and opinions are my own. All photos are copyright property of Me Becoming Mum.
You may have seen my posts about cloth nappies and or seen Pickle in cloth nappies on social media, or maybe even seen my Insta stories talking about making the switch to cloth sanitary pads. We were kind of forced into the world of cloth thanks to Squidgy’s allergies, but now? I wouldn’t change a think!
Cheeky Wipes reusable wipes are easy to use
Cloth wipes are a natural progression if you already use cloth nappies
Cloth nappies are something that we were already using, so it wasn’t such a big leap to make the move to reusable wipes for us. That doesn’t mean to say that you can only use them with cloth nappies, however. They are so easy to use with or without cloth nappies, and because the “mucky” Cheeky Wipes box comes with a wash bag you can separate the wipes from your disposable nappies. Just be careful not to accidentally put them into the bin, as that would defeat the point of them being reusable wipes.
Cheeky Wipes reusable wipes are natural
The best thing about Cheeky Wipes is that you only need water! There is nothing more natural than that to clean hands, faces and bums! It also means that you can use your Cheeky Wipes from the day your baby is born. I know that we were a little late to the game to use our Cheeky Wipes for a newborn but that doesn’t mean that we won’t ever do so. The nature of reusable wipes is that they can be washed and used again which means that even when Pickle is no longer in nappies they will continue to be a staple in our home. If you want them to smell nice too, you simple need a few drops of Cheeky Wipes oil or an essential oil of your choice!
You can get Cheeky Wipes box for fresh and mucky wipes
The mini kit that we were sent is a great starter kit as it comes with enough wipes to get you going, and a box to keep them in (because obviously they will be wet when you get them ready for use!) However you can also invest in a larger kit or separately (as I did!) you can purchase a mucky box with wash bag. The boxes have different coloured lids, as well as being labelled, which makes them much easier to differentiate and even my girls know which ones to pick up when we are using them.
Cheeky Wipes are easy to wash… especially if you already use cloth nappies
Cheeky Wipes are so easy to wash. Every other day I pop the whole wash bag from my mucky box into the wash with my cloth nappies. They should be washed at a max of 40° to prevent them from degrading… so if you wash your cloth nappies at a higher temp (I mostly wash at 40° but if I have a lot of soiled nappies I use a 60° wash cycle) wash them in a separate wash.
They can just be popped in with your clothing wash thanks to the wash bag. Once washed, dried and set up they will stay fresh for around two to three days. If you are using them regularly and exclusively like me, this won’t matter as you will use the whole box before that time is up.
Cheeky Wipes reusable wipes can be used out and about too!
Not only can you get a Cheeky Wipes box for both fresh and mucky wipes, you can also get bags too! This means that you can carry a handful of reusable wipes out and about with you for those inevitable messes that occur naturally thanks to kids being kids. The colour coding on the bags is the same as the lids on the boxes and the mucky bag comes with a zip which means that smells are sealed in and nothing can leak into your changing bag.
Making the move to using reusable wipes was a great one for us. It has been super easy, especially as we already use cloth nappies. Plus if each of us makes small changes to sustainable, eco-friendly options like Cheeky Wipes then in the long run it will make a massive difference to the world that we live in by reducing our waste and the amount that we put into landfill.
