Whether you’re concerned about the environmental effect of using traditional disposable wipes or you want to limit the contact your baby’s skin has with chemicals, you’ll find a variety of baby wipe alternatives that help make your job easier while using fewer chemical ingredients for a more natural clean.

Environmental, natural wipes, such as those manufactured by Seventh Generation, Earth’s Best and Clearly Herbal, contain renewable materials such as bamboo, which are then flushable or compostable when you’re finished with them. Since they’re biodegradable, they don’t contain chemicals that could cause a reaction on your baby’s skin.
Reusable Cloth Wipes : Parents who make the decision to cloth diaper their babies often also make the decision to use cloth wipes. Cloth wipes allow you to have complete control over the materials that touch your baby’s skin and are simple to launder with cloth diapers.
