GroVia cloth wipes come in white only, and a 12-pack sells for $10.95 (MSRP.)  At less than 92 cents per wipe, I figured they were worth a try!  P.S. Stay tuned for another cloth wipe review/giveaway on September 6th, as well as a post on The Village of Moms about using cloth wipes!

The wipes are 100% cotton and measure 8×8, which is perfect for folding and putting in a wipes case or warmer.

They are 2 layers thick, soft and squishy.  They have held up to use wonderfully, but I was definitely disappointed initially, after the first washing.

There are two rows of stitching around the border of the wipes, and the inner row came loose in most of the wipes.  I don’t know if they are purposely designed this way?  I suppose it’s possible.

It’s very hard to see since they’re white on white, but the stitching seems very sloppy and overlapped.  Really though, at less than a buck a wipe, I didn’t really expect any better.  The ugly stitching doesn’t affect the wipes, they are holding up to use, washing and drying great.  I don’t even notice the stitching as I’m wiping my son’s tush (ha ha.)

 I also ended up with quite a few pulled threads within the wipes, which was entirely my fault.  The tag was sewn into the wipes (can’t stand that on clothing too!) and I yanked it instead of cutting.  Oops!

The wipes still measure about 8×8 after washing on hot and drying on high.
They’re nice and fluffy stacked up!

They stack nicely with my other wipes too!  I’ve been using them for a few weeks now and they’ve worked great and washed up nicely with no stains!
I have another set of 12 wipes, new in their package for one winner!
