Would you buy cloth wipes?

I am making cloth wipes to sell. But, I have a few questions.
1. How much would you pay for cloth wipes?
2. How many wipes would you expect to get for that price in order for it to be worth it in your mind?
3. Would you prefer wipes that are square and need to be folded in order to fit in the wipe container but are bigger over all or wipes that fit in the wipe container without being folded and are smaller?

  • Are you talking about washclothes?
    Is this part of the green movement?
    I don't know, I haven't thought about it. I use wet wipes when we are traveling and usually washclothes at home.

  • No, not wash cloths. Cloth wipes are used just like disposable wipes and are meant to replace them. You can just wash them and reuse them over and over again. You also use cloth wipe solution that you can buy premade or you can make it yourself with plenty of recipes online.

  • I make my own, so wouldn't buy them. I do it to save money.

  • most wipes seem to be 75 cents to $1 each, and about 8" by 8", so you can fold them one time and fit them in a huggies wipes dispenser or whatever...

  • Honestly, I never thought of making wipes. I like the idea, but I have no idea how much to charge. Sorry I could not be more help.

  • Yes but I would need more info on the product to make a decision. With the flushables they are about $3 for a pack of 75-80. I would expect to pay more for cloth ones as they can be reused.
