~Mamia Baby Wipes~
Mamia is a baby product brand which is exclusive to Aldi stores. They offer two types of baby wipes - fragranced and unfragranced. I will be discussing the fragranced baby wipes. These baby wipes have won a few awards including a Mother and Baby Gold award in 2012/13.
These baby wipes are presented in a green, plastic packet which cannot be recycled. The packet has a plastic lid to keep the baby wipes fresh and moist. Aldi state that these baby wipes have been dermatologically tested and contain chamomile and aloe vera to keep skin soft and smooth. These baby wipes are suitable for being used during nappy changes, at feeding time and after play time to keep your babies skin clean and fresh. It is recommended that you dispose of these wipes with your rubbish and they really shouldn't be flushed.
~Price and Availability~
These baby wipes are only available from Aldi and currently cost 89p for a packet of 80 wipes.
Despite my son being five years old, I still buy baby wipes and we use them as a family. On our last day in Blackpool, we were having an ice cream and this resulted in sticky hands! I normally buy Asda baby wipes but with there being no Asda in sight, I needed to find an alternative. I spotted an Aldi store so headed in to see what they had. A new Aldi store is due to open in our town in 4 weeks time and these wipes are definitely something that I will be repurchasing there.
The packaging is very much like pampers in design. I like baby wipes to have the plastic lid as I feel that this stops the wipes from drying out so quickly. I purchased these 6 days ago and we are still using them for various cleaning tasks. The wipes are loosely stacked together and it is a simple task to just remove one or two rather than half a packet. Each wipe is a good size - probably bigger than Johnson's and are white in colour with a fun star and flower print design. The wipes have a medium thickness and are durable. Each wipe is made of perfectly soft cloth and of a good quality. The wipes aren't soaking wet but they do feel nicely moist and remain this way providing the plastic lid is shut over properly. Our wipes are still moist and haven't dried out in the 6 days we have been using them.
Whilst my son is no longer in nappies, he does favour wipes over toilet paper in the toilet though I am trying to encourage him to use toilet paper ahead of going to school in August. I must admit, I am the same and whilst it isn't recommended that you flush these wipes, I do it and have had no issues. The wipes are the perfect size and thickness for after-toilet cleaning and feel very soft and gentle against little (and big!) bottoms - no issues at all and you do not need to use a bundle of wipes to clean yourself..one or two will suffice. They do not leave skin feeling damp either which is a bonus. They leave your delicate areas feeling refreshed and clean. The wipes have a very light and clean scent which isn't unsimilar to Pampers. I personally prefer the scent of our usual Asda wipes which are only 11p more expensive per pack.
These wipes have mainly been used for cleansing skin if it becomes sticky. After our ice creams, we found these wipes to be very effective at ridding our skin of any sticky residue and then disposing off them in the nearest bin. They hold up well when used to scrub skin and haven't caused any discomfort or irritation to my families sensitive skin. I used them to clean my son and nephews faces and any chocolate or sauce marks are quickly removed with no issues. Both my son and nephew have very sensitive facial skin and neither has experienced any redness or soreness from their faces being wiped over.
My final use for these baby wipes is cleaning up spills and dust. These wipes are very effective at removing dust and marks from my furniture and the dust especially clings to the wipe and is swept away with no issues. I find these cheap enough to use for cleaning compared to Johnson's or Pampers baby wipes. Regardless of how I use these baby wipes, they have held together well with no sign of falling apart. They are of a decent quality when compared to branded baby wipes.
I do still prefer my usual Asda baby wipes but these are a good alternative and very cheap. They are kind to skin and durable as well as being versatile. I like that they are just moist enough to perform various tasks without being soaking wet and they leave skin feeling soft, smooth and free from dirt or residue. The packet is quite large compared to other brands but still neat enough to be stored in a changing bag or under a pram as you never know when you will need to wipe something over on the go! Our pack still has several wipes in it and the pack seems to be never ending! I recommended these baby wipes.
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: cheap and of a decent quality
