Disposable Baby Wipes - Reusable?

Just yesterday after washing a load of cloth diapers, I was hanging them out to dry when I noticed that I had accidentely washed some of the disposable liners I have been using.  To my surprise they looked just as they did when I first used them. Instead of throwing them away I kept them. They are perfect for cleaning my pet birds cages. Of course after that use I will throw them out. Much cheaper than using paper towels. I will continue to throw these wipes in the wash with my diapers, however I will not wash the stool soiled ones. I am sure there are other uses for these washed wipes as well.  

The brand of these wipes are Bummis. I am not sure whether or not all disposable wipes would hold up after a wash. But why not give it a go. 

For those of you using disposable wipes have you ever done something similar?

  1. This is a neat discovery! I bet any kind of "wipe" could be washed and reused for not so sanitary cleaning like a bird cage. etc...

  2. I have washed and reused paper towels before, they don't last nearly as long as my unpaper towels but in a pinch they work :)
