Most wipes are made of plastic. Ours are made of 100% cotton. We use 50% USA-grown unbleached cotton, and 50% post-industrial cotton clothing scrap. Using cotton makes our wipes renewably sourced, one-time-washable, and marine/biodegradable, meaning that they can return to the earth without a trace!
Because they are dry, they are completely free of all synthetic chemicals, preservatives, irritants, and the possibility of molding. You choose exactly what to wet them with, and exactly what touches your baby’s skin. Being dry also allows us to offer them to you in reusable (and washable!) packaging, eliminating plastic waste from the entire process.
“Not Yet Wet Wipes” are rolls of soft + thick dry cotton wipes
The rolls go into our reusable cotton bags, eliminating waste

When you’re done you can wash, toss, or compost them!
To Get a wipe
Whether the wipes bag is in or out of the canister, pull up on the wipe, using your opposite hand to gently pinch the opening of the bag. (see image)
To refill the Wipe Bag
Place a new roll inside the bag, pull up on the centermost wipe to start the roll, and tighten the drawstrings completely. If desired, place the bag back into the canister.
Wetting your wipes
1. Form into a loose ball
2. Douse with solution
3. Gently squeeze
4. Open wipe + enjoy!
Using the Travel Squeezer
For best results: form the wipe into a loose ball, press the squeezer directly against the wipe and give the travel squeezer a generous squeeze to transfer the solution. Just as always, give the wipe a gentle squeeze to disperse the liquid. Open and enjoy!
Cleaning your wipes
When using your wipes for things like kitchen clean up, makeup removal, or wiping little hands, you can easily rinse the wipe out with a bit of soap and hang dry for another use.
If machine washing, we recommend washing on a gentle cycle and suggest just one wash and dry cycle since the agitation can be hard on the fibers.
When your wipes’ life cycle is up, cotton is naturally biodegradable and compostable, and will easily break down completely in a backyard or industrial compost.
And of course, they are disposable and can be tossed into the trash–but note that landfills do not allow for the decomposition of any materials.
Not Yet Wet Wipes
Most disposable wipes are made of plastic and soaked in synthetics. That’s why we created 100% cotton Not Yet Wet Wipes™; the purest, most sustainable wipe we could dream up. Now you can enjoy the freedom of a truly gentle disposable wipe while honoring your values.
