Hoe gebruik je de wasbare Eco Era doekjes?

Are you unsure about purchasing washable bottom/face wipes because you are not sure whether it suits you and you do not know how to use it? Here we explain it to you!

First of all, it's great that you're considering switching to washable. Are you already a fan of washable? Super! Then the wipes are a nice addition to your daily use.

You can use Eco Era's washable wipes for different purposes, which makes them even more sustainable.

Snoot cleaners
Of course just as face cleaners, when you use them for this you can use them in the same way as a washcloth, for example. You can use the wipes several times before actually putting them in the washing machine. For example, you clean your child(ren)'s face and hands after eating, rinse them under the tap and let them dry, for example on the edge of the heater (it does not have to be turned on for this). After a few times, put them in the washing machine. You do the same if you use them on the go or to wipe your nose during the sniffling season.


Baby wipes
Do you also use the wipes as baby wipes? I hear from many mothers that they think this is a big step, for example if you don't use washable diapers. But nothing could be further from the truth. Washable baby wipes are very easy to use, and of course better for the environment and your baby.

It is useful to have a water syringe near your changing table, or to take it with you on the go. Put some water and possibly some organic chamomile or gold blossom oil in the water syringe. Both are also available from Eco Era.

Wet the cloth with water and now use the cloth as you would use a disposable cloth; you clean your child's diaper area with the cloth. The only difference is that you don't throw it away afterwards, 1 cloth is often enough and it is better for your child's skin. The washable wipes contain no chemicals or perfume.
Of course, you can also just wet the cloth under the tap instead of using a spray.

Now the most frequently asked question is; "But what about a poopy diaper?"
Even with a poopy diaper, it is even easier to use washable wipes. You can of course choose to use a piece of toilet paper first, so that most of it is gone. This way you prevent the entire cloth from becoming covered in poop. This is also nice if you do not use washable wipes, toilet paper can be flushed and disposable wipes cannot, they are not biodegradable due to the amount of plastic in them.

Once you have removed most of the poop, you can simply clean the buttocks with a damp washable cloth. Of course, you then immediately put this in the wash.

If you like, you can fill the bottle with oil. This has a soothing effect on your little one's skin. At Eco Era you can buy chamomile and gold blossom (calendula) oil.

Thank you for your interest in the handmade wipes and have fun with this step towards sustainability.
