Wouldn’t it be lovely if cloth wipes could “pop” up like disposable ones? Well, if you know how to fold them just right, they can! In today’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how to fold them so they pop. This works great with an empty Huggies wipes dispenser (I’ve tried it with other brands, but the Huggies one seems to work the best because of the “flaps” in the lid) and with the Bobee diaper and wipes dispenser.
One thing I’ve noticed when the wipes are in the empty disposable wipes box is that the taller the stack and the longer the cloth wipes, the better they work. They also seem to work better when they’re damp (like they stick together a little better). They seem to work no matter what in the Bobee dispenser though, thanks to gravity!

So it might work in a regular dispenser if you attached it upside-down to something?
I will have to check this Bobee thing out.
It works in a regular dispenser too, especially the Huggies ones. 🙂 It does get picky as you get to the bottom (just like it would with disposable wipes) unless those wipes are longer (which helps). 🙂
So happy I found your blog! What reusable wipes brand would you suggest to a new mom who still needs to buy some for this purpose?
Hi, Kate! I actual have always pretty much stuck to cheap baby washcloths. If you’re new to cloth diapering, you can check out my beginner’s guide here. Have a great day!
I got some on Amazon called Buttons. If you search Buttons flannel baby wipes it will come up. They’re around $7 for 15 of them but worth every penny. They don’t shrink in the dryer because they’re bamboo rayon, not cotton. I don’t have kids but honestly, sometimes my bum needs a wipe haha. Wash with peroxide & Borax; they’ll be fine. Makeup won’t come out of them so I keep a few for that purpose separated in a box. The rest go wet in a dispenser for general clean-up use (I’m messy).
