    Reusable face wipes: Do you use them? 16th Jun 15 at 2:17 PM
    Update September 2017

    We started this discussion a couple of years ago but the topic's always relevant.

    If you're interested in more ways to save money with re-usable products read our Recycle Week Hub.

    Back to the original post...


    ----

    7-13 September is #ZeroWasteWeek. We're working with several organisations to highlight how much you could save by re-using and recycling. See the full Zero Waste Week info.

    We'd love to know how much you spend on household items and whether you'd save by using re-usable versions. This discussion's all about face wipes. How much do you spend on them and how much could you save by using re-usable or home-made ones instead?

    What to do:

    Step 1: Use our Demotivator to work out how much you spend on face wipes PER YEAR!
    Step 2: Vote in the poll to tell us how much you spend on them.
    Step 3: Work out how much you'd save by using re-usables instead
    Step 4: Post in the forum thread below to tell us how much you think you'd save per year.

    You are meant to use flannels once on your face and then your body and then chuck them in the wash and you certainly aren't meant to share them or use them on your face after you have used them elsewhere.

    (Btw I am trained beauty therapist).

    Another very good thing to use is a facial cleansing sponge. Again great for gentle daily exfoliation. A pack of two is £1. I cut them in half. You can use them for around a month if you keep clean them with soapy water after each use and pop them in a sterilising solution every couple of days.

    But if you can wash aldis wipes and then wear them out for general cleaning then that's great.

    A flannel and hot water does it for me, but then I was born in the era when everyone used them.

    Fantastic to see this discussion's still going after a couple of years, perfect for #recycleweek next week!

    As pointed out, a re-useable wipe for washing with is a flannel

    I have disposable wipes for my hands and my botty when I'm out and about, but no, they're not re-useable!!

    I got a couple of packs of Johnson's Baby Wipes for a quid each recently and have been using them to cleanse my face. I haven't found them drying at all, which is great. I'd never heard of bamboo face cloths before so thank you for the tip, aintshesweet, I've just ordered one from eBay.

    I use mircofibre face towels. I think I have about 10 of them and they are white so I chuck them in the wash with my white sheets every week. I fold them up nicely and sit them on top of the side of the shower so I can't forget to take one in with me.

    I've been using Muslin Cloths to cleanser my face and remove Facial make up for years. Although I still use cotton wool pads for my eye makeup remover. Currently looking for a replacement for cotton wool pads, don't want to use muslin cloths on my eyes as think these will be too rough.

    I've made my own cotton rounds and use those or a muslin cloth.
