Day #30: SMQ Organics Review and Giveaway


Since I started cloth diapering, I always wanted to try cloth wipes.  Recently, I was given the opportunity to try out wipes from SMQ Organics.

SMQ Organics is a mom owned and crafted Etsy shop that specializes in organic handcrafted baby items, including crib sheets, washcloths, cloth wipes, and blankets.

About the wipes:
  • Wipes in Organic Cotton, Soy and Rayon from Bamboo.
  • These wipes are good for your baby and good for the planet. They are luxuriously soft and will not irritate baby's delicate newborn skin.
  • Can also be used for Cleaning, Dirty Faces or Runny Noses.
  • Hypoallergenic so they are great for babies with eczema.
  • Machine wash & dry.
  • Handmade in Canada.
My review:  
For review I was sent a set of green wipes. Upon touching the wipes they were very soft and a really good size.  Included with the wipes was a letter explaining what they are made of, as well as two different recipes for homemade wipes solution.  Since I didn't have any tea tree oil on hand, I decided to use a very simple variation of one of the recipes.
 I combined: 1 tablespoon baby oil 2 teaspoons baby wash (or baby shampoo) 2 1/2 cups water and poured over the wipes that were in a plastic baby wipes container.  Then I just swished them around a bit and then were ready to go!  Baby A was happy to oblige by providing me with a very stinky diaper shortly after, so I could try the wipes out.  With disposable wipes, it feels like we easily use 6-8 wipes with her stinky diapers, but with these cloth wipes, I only had to use two! Baby A also has problems with diaper rash and sensitive skin, so disposable wipes often irritate her skin and hurt her, but with these wipes that was not a problem as they are made with organic materials and no chemicals.
Overall, the wipes were easy to use, soft and gentle on her skin. When I was finished, I just tossed them in with the cloth diapers in my wetbag and then were ready to wash with the next load of diapers.  I don't think it could get easier than that! The only tip I have is to pre-wash your wipes alone or they will run onto your diapers if placed next to them when wet.

  7. I am hoping to use cloth diapers and wipes when my first is born.
    But I do have a question: do you need to rinse them before washing if they get really dirty while cleaning a messy diaper?

  8. It's between the crib sheets or the cloth wipes. We can never have too many of either in our house.

  10. To me - you have to use cloth wipes if you are going to CD. It doesn't make sense otherwise.

  12. I use cloth wipes because I think they get baby cleaner, and it's easier to use them since I cloth diaper. It all goes to one bucket.

  38. My baby boy should be here any day now and I plan to use cloth wipes...I have bought baby washcloths and plan to make a solution.

  39. What a great concept-- I definitely recommend pairing these items with organic pillows because of the close contact with your face for such prolonged amounts of time. Organic bedding has been one of the best home upgrades I've made so far, it's great to see other people encouraging this concept as well!

  40. Some organic baby clothes may not be washable. However, Hatley and Emile et Rose are two designers that offer organic baby clothes and non-organic options that withstand many washings without fading or stretching. Because babies may spit up, they tend to go through many clothing changes at first.Parents want clothing that won’t cause their baby skin rashes and won’t have to be taken to the cleaners after every wearing. They do not to have to pay an additional cleaning bill because they bought organic baby clothes. Parents should consider the ease of wash and wear before they look at the price tag. Even cheap organic baby clothes are not worth the cost if they require additional care instructions or an additional trip to the dry cleaners.
