We use Buttons wipeable covers in our rotation with flats and prefolds. Owner Amy recently told me some new prints are coming at the end of Spring, so that’s something to look forward to. We also received a few items from Buttons to share with you in a review: a 100-count roll of Flushable Bamboo Liners (retail $7.00) and a 15-pack of Cotton Flannel Wipes (retail $7.00). Both of these are good products at a really great price, so read on for the full review and a chance to win some for yourself!
The wipes are one layer of unbleached cotton flannel with red stitching around the edges. They measure just under 8 inches square and after washing shrank about 0.25 inches, which is expected. Flannel is a soft and smooth fabric so it has worked well for the average diaper change. The only improvement to these wipes would be to have a second layer of fabric that’s a little bit “nubbier” for stubborn messes. But if you’re looking for a soft, basic wipe at a bargain price, you can’t beat these; you get 15 for just $7.00!
If you haven’t used flushable diaper liners before, I urge you to give them a try. They can considerably cut down on (and often eliminate altogether) “dunking and swishing” time if you’ve resisted the urge to buy a sprayer like I have. Now, I have tried several mainstream brands of flushable liners and Buttons is now my top choice. I will definitely be buying another package when the complimentary sample I received runs out. They are just about as good as a liner can get with features like a great price (100 sheets for $7.00), silky soft fabric and a size that’s just right.
Each liner is perforated and easy to tear off the roll, one sheet at a time:
See what I mean about the size? At 6.5 x 11.5 they aren’t too skinny or too wide, and they coordinate perfectly with all Buttons inserts. The length is almost exactly equivalent to a standard, infant-sized prefold diaper, which you can see in the photo below. For smaller babies you can fold up the back or front a little; it creates no extra bulk. For larger babies or toddlers, just shift it to the back of the diaper slightly (that’s where you want most of the coverage anyway).
