ATLANTA, Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Eco-friendly, reusable cloth baby wipes are becoming more popular among environmentally conscious parents. In response to increasing demand, Babytooshy.com has introduced new anti-microbial bamboo-and-velour washcloths now available at Amazon.com that help families save money and waste compared to disposable wipes.
Numerous scientific studies have proven that bamboo-based fabric not only does not promote the growth of bacteria and germs like most other fabrics, but actually kills bacteria naturally.
"Parents want to do everything they can to keep their babies as clean and healthy as possible," said Gioula Chelten, founder of Babytooshy.com, a new online resource for parents seeking sustainable baby products. "Parents have been asking for an alternative to traditional cotton, terrycloth, rayon, and blended-fabric baby wipes, and our new washcloths are soft, strong, hypoallergenic, and have been scientifically proven to kill germs naturally, instead of harbor them."
Ecologically sustainable bamboo forests grown for fabric production do not require the use of pesticides or anti-fungal agents, and the fabric produced from bamboo kills 99.8 percent of germs that cause the potentially deadly Staph infection, along with many other dangerous microbes, according to a study by North Carolina State University's College of Textiles.
Recently introduced on Amazon.com, Baby Tooshy offers a six-pack of 10- by 10-inch, double-sided bamboo-and-velour baby washcloths in an array of colors that are machine-washable, and feature one side of velour, with the other side composed of soft-but-strong woven bamboo fabric that provides enough strength for scrubbing.
"The velour side is velvety soft," said Chelten. "The bamboo side is very strong but still soft enough to use for cleaning your baby's delicate bottom, plus they're great for all the things families use washcloths for - removing make-up, bathing kids of all ages, even wiping up spills. They're durable enough for multiple uses, you just toss them in the washing machine and they're ready for the next time you need them."
While some bamboo baby wipes boast they are "100 percent bamboo," Chelten explained that there actually is no such thing as 100-percent bamboo fabric.
"Bamboo is a rigid plant whose fibers must be blended with a softer yarn to make a soft and durable fabric," Chelten said. "Baby Tooshy's bamboo-and-velour baby wipes contain the highest concentration of natural fibers available, offering the best strength and germ-killing properties on the market."
