- Recommended Usage: instead of toilet paper for #1
- Efficiency: one single cloth is as soft and absorbent as a whole handful of toilet paper
- Measure: 6"x 8" or 15cm x 20cm with rounded edges
- Care: You can machine wash and dry, or hand wash and dry overnight
Rosie here, these are so soft and effective that I actually get annoyed when they are in the wash and I need to use toilet paper instead.
When Tracy in Oregon first asked me to make something like this for her, I thought, (having battled with cloth diapers at various times in my life - the first being when my little brother was born when I was 9 years old), that the process would be a great big pain in the neck. How pleasantly surprised I was to find that when just used for number 1, they're very easy to clean and toilet paper lasts a lot longer in the house!
This damask weave and the combination of cotton and linen is unbelievably absorbent.
Tiny Environmental Footprint
Aside from the obvious use of less toilet paper, you'll never have to wash these on their own. They are compact, and in a mesh laundry bag, can just be added to whatever load of laundry you have going.
