**CLOSED** Comfybuns Customs: Wipes Review & Giveaway


Comfybuns Customs is yet another terrific WAHM-run company, headed up by Jessica from British Columbia, Canada. Having started out making cloth baby wipes, Jessica has also expanded her eco-friendly handmade customs to include wipes of a variety of shapes, sizes, and patterns--perfect not only for diaper changes but also for sticky fingers, hands, and even household use! She has also broken into creating "un-paper towels", a terrific eco-friendly option to using throwaways in the kitchen. Easy to store dirties in a wetbag and wash up with diaper or regular laundry on wash day, all of Jessica's wipes are cute, soft, and receive my recommendation!

Up for review, Jessica sent me four different samples of her wipes varieties to check out:
1 "Perfect" Wipe (8x8)
1 "Pocket" Wipe (7x7)
1 "Personal" Wipe (7.5x4.5)
1 "Petite Personal" Wipe (6x4.5)
Really, there are no designated uses for these, but as I mentioned above, they could all be useful for hands, fingers, bums, or even as family cloth! I actually liked having some selection with the sizes. I found that the "petite personal" wipe was very handy for simply wiping up after a pee diaper, or even for use just dabbing dry after giving Baby's bum a really wet wash-down. The medium sizes were fairly standard in comparison to other cloth wipes, and the large, "perfect" wipe was indeed "perfect" for tackling those scary, uber-messy diapers (the ones where you want maximum surface area so your own bare hands don't have to become involved in clean-up duty!).

In terms of aesthetic appeal, I love Comfybuns Customs' cute prints and colors--these sweet wipes have a different pattern/color combo on each side so that livens them up a bit and gives them that true "custom" look. The cloth is a supersoft flannel that remains tender and smooth even with multiple washes. As with any flannel, the fabric does start to pill a little with multiple washes & dries, but not to a concerning extent, and the colors have still stayed vibrant and the fabric soft & smooth. I actually prefer these wipes nowadays to some of the more terry-textured ones I've tried in the past as I feel that the terry texture can really do a number on rubbing off tender new skin trying to heal up on a rash or even a sensitive bottom.

Overall I highly recommend these wipes and am happy to help support a work-at-home-mom, especially one from Canada! :) To see all that Jessica has to offer, be sure to check out her Facebook page (including photo albums) and her blog as she's always coming up with new creations, deals, and even giveaway celebrations & sponsorships!
