Fold Your Cloth Wipes for that "Pop-Up" Effect!

Let's face it, one of the most convenient things about disposable wipes is that they come in that handy plastic dispenser and when you pull out one wipe, the next in turn, is waiting to be pulled next.  It's that handy "pop-up" effect that allows you to hold a squirmy baby with one hand and grab your wipes with the other.

Well thanks to some inventive mamas, who just had to figure out the secret to pop-up wipes, you can now easily achieve the "pop-up" effect with your cloth wipes!

So, don't toss all those platic wipes containers, save a few, and then use them to store your cloth wipes, either pre-moistened or dry.

In the video below, Kim of Dirty Diaper Laundry, easily demonstrates how to fold your wipes and get the pop-up effect.


I'm curious as to how well this method would work with small cloth wipes. The wipes I made are 5.5"x5.5"... Also, does it continue to work as well as you get further down to the bottom of the stack? Do the wipes stick together as well as the disposable wipes do?

cant wait to try this, hope it works

What a great idea! Having the pop-up effect with cloth would be much easier. I'll have to try it out with my wipe warmer. I'm hoping the cloth comes through so I don't have to open the lid completely every time. Thanks for posting the video!
