Review & Giveaway: Ladybug on a Pug Cloth Wipes

I've been lucky enough to find a fairly new WAHM to allow me to host a review & giveaway for you.  Let me introduce...Ladybug on a Pug!

Jamie, the  mom behind Ladybug on a Pug, is a fairly new WAHM.  She began making wipes when she couldn't find what she wanted commercially and realized that she could make high quality wipes for a lesser amount than what other companies charged for them. About her fun prints, she said, "I love fun prints so using one side with flannel seemed a great way to add a touch of whimsy to, lets face it, a messy job!"  She began selling after sharing pictures in a cloth diaper forum and finding people had interest in her design.  Ladybug on a Pug can be found on Etsy or Hyena Cart and makes both standard and travel sized wipes.

Ladybug on a Pug was kind enough to send me six girly two-ply cloth wipes.  One layer of adorable flannel print and another layer of cotton sherpa.  They measure about 8x8 square and are turned & top-stitched.  They are very well-made and came tied up in a pretty ladybug bow.  I let her choose the prints she sent me and I could not be happier with what she chose.  They are all adorable.  I think my favorite are probably the monkeys (A's nickname is Little Monkey), the brown and aqua hearts and the black, white, and pink floral.

I've been using my wipes for a couple of weeks now and other than the standard pilling that you get with all flannels, they still look amazing. There have been no issues with the stitching, like you sometimes find with serged wipes.  The sherpa side is great for poopy diapers.  I have been able to clean some very messy diapers with just one wipe.  These would also be great for cleaning up messy hands and faces after eating!  I usually use a wipe warmer for my wipes because we are currently in a basement and they get really cold otherwise.  I also like the pop up dispenser the warmer has (I started with disposable wipes, so the pop up is just a habit I guess).  The only negative I've found with these wipes is that they are a bit thick to get through the pop up dispenser in my warmer and they are so cute I want to leave them out anyways!  I may have to find a pretty little basket to put them in and just plop them in wipes solution to use as needed!

Bottom line, I love these wipes.  I may need to buy some more sometime in the near future.  You can buy these wipes on Etsy or Hyena Cart or you can win your own set of 12 standard or travel size wipes in winner's choice of prints! a Rafflecopter giveaway
