(Closed) Bummas Review and Giveaway Ends 3/5





I recently had the opportunity to review Bummas in The Wild Ones set of colors. Bummas are cloth wipes that were originally created to dry off the excess wetness that disposable or cloth wipes leave behind before putting on a fresh diaper. Each cloth is made of 100% Cotton Woven Velour Terry Cloth. They are made of a single layer of material measuring 5" x 7" and each cloth is serged on the edges in bright, fun colors. Bummas wash nicely and don't pill, shrink, or fade as their website states. They come in a bunch of fun colors too! I like that the material is milled here is the USA, and they are assembled here is the USA also. I LOVE supporting companies and products that are made right here in our own country.

All too often I find that Buddy's bottom is too wet from wet wipes to put on a new diaper. We often resort to letting him run around without a diaper for a minute to avoid diaper rash and skin irritation. It's seems to work okay and Buddy thinks it's hilarious, but we have had the occasional accident by doing this. Since receiving Bummas, I have found that they do an excellent job at getting the bottom area dry with just a few pats from the velour side of the cloth. I found the velour side to be very soft when dry, and the terry cloth side to be a little more rough against the skin. Then they are easily folded up into the dirty cloth diaper and put in the wetbag until wash day (unless he's in disposable which means I throw just the Bummas wipe into the wetbag).

I already use cloth wipes to clean up Buddy's face and hands after meals. I have set a few Bummas cloths aside to test them out for this too. I found that Bummas cloths seem to loose there softness on the velour side when wet, so both sides were a little rough on the skin for this. I also had a hard time keeping the Bummas cloth in my hand while cleaning him up. Below is a size comparison to another brand of cloth wipes I currently use to accomplish this task. Having a larger cloth that drapes over the hand slightly when the palm is up, helps the cloth stay on the hand and clean up is a lot easier. I found that Bummas are not the first cloth wipe I reach for in this situation. 

Size Comparison: Bummas (5" x 7") on top of a Play All Day Hemp Fleece wipe (9.5" x 9.5")

While I have not actually used Bummas for wet wiping a dirty bottom, I would anticipate they'd get the job done. I just can't get myself to convert from disposable wipes to cloth wipes yet. I did however place the stack of Bummas into an empty disposable wipes container and they do fit perfectly for storing if you want to pre-soak them in water or a wipes solution.  

Bummas also recommends placing a dry Bummas cloth on your child's parts (for a boy) to avoid getting soaked if you aren't fast enough to catch an unexpected stream. Apparently one Bummas cloth will soak up an entire pee!

Price: Although they should last through your child's diapering years, they are a bit expensive at about $16.99 per package of 10 cloths. You would probably want to get a few packages so you aren't having to wash everyday. This would definitely depend on whether you are using them to just pat dry, as a wet cloth wipe for diapering, or as a clean-up cloth after meals (or all 3!).

The Verdict: Bummas are an eco-friendly, bright and happy alternative to disposable baby wipes. They certainly get the job done, and have a few different uses. I will continue to use to pat my son's bottom dry with them (the velour is really soft when dry!), but will not change what we are already using for mealtime clean up.

Buy it!
Bummas are available for purchase at Bummas.com for $16.99, or at various retailers that can be found here.

 Win it!
