I received mine from CooshytOOsh, an Etsy shop (as a side note, Susie, the owner, grew up about 15 minutes from where I live & she is currently in Washington State, where I used to live! ). Susie has been incredibly sweet & great to work with. Here's what she says about the Potty Pads:
BUY NOW AND RECEIVE A FREE LAUNDRY BAG FOR SUPER EASY LAUNDRYING!!
3" X 5" WIPERS 40 of super SOFT COTTON
MADE OF SUPERBLY RICH LUXURIOUSLY SOFT COTTON
7" x 8" laundry mesh bag with drawstring. Just pull shut and throw in the laundry!!
SAVE OVER $500 to $875 a year!!
PROMISE ONCE YOU USE THESE SPA ESSENTIALS YOU'LL NEVER WALK DOWN THAT TOILET PAPER ISLE AGAIN!!
So, back to me. I've ended up using the Potty Pads & I must say, I didn't mind them one bit! Now, I haven't used them for um... let's just say... everything ...yet, but I like them! I still need to work out my system for storage of the clean & the used wipes, but I think once I get it down, it'll be no big deal! And, even if I only use them for urine, they'll save me tremendously (because tp is one thing I don't buy cheap- on sale yes, but not cheap). These are uber-soft & fluffy, even after washing. In fact, I even tried them out on B, now that I've decided to make the switch to cloth wipes for him. They worked wonderfully- they're just a bit smaller than my other wipes.
Moral of the story- don't be scared of trying new things! Especially if you cloth diaper- what's the big deal?! And these are so soft, you may never want to go back!
Check out CooshytOOSh for more unpaper products, as well as cloth diapers & accessories. I hope to try out her Eco Baby Wipes next!
