They're pre-folded for convenience and include an absorbent pad that increases their effectiveness. Rather than tossing them into the garbage after use like disposables, just toss them into the washer and dryer. They'll be cleaned and ready for reuse quickly. They're designed to stand up to frequent washing, saving you money and keeping extra waste out of the landfill, too. Stow a few in your travel bag for diaper changes on the road. In a pinch, these can even be used as a clean cloth for wiping up baby messes or as a impromptu burpcloth. Pick up a few sets today to keep a supply handy when you need them! This set is great for gifting.
