CleverRelish WipesWraps Review



 
I have a really fun awesome product to help spruce up any room in your home, including the nursery! They are WipesWraps covers for Baby Wipes containers and are made by CleverRelish! They come in a good array of colors and styles and this is the one that I was sent and it's called Fiery Geometric.  The Geometric circles and lines interlock in red, black and white.
 
 
Now, I have to admit that I didn't get the right size box of Baby Wipes. Don't know what I was thinking but my box is a little bit smaller so I had to improvise and try to get it to work so I will be showing you some other colors from their site so that you will get the right idea of how they should look with the right size container of Baby Wipes. 
 
 
I love that they are made in the USA and please hand wash them in cold water so that you get the most out of your WipesWraps. They cannot guarantee that they fit all baby wipe containers but will fit most of them. And as you can see, mine was a little smaller but I was still able to get it to work, it's just not as snug as it would have been with a bigger container.
 
Here are some other colors and designs that will show you the perfect fit also:
 
 
  
 
How it all began:
CleverRelish was founded in by Jill Carreiro, an engineer, salesperson, lifelong tinkerer and thankful momma to three little ones ranging from 3 to 7 years old (and another on the way!)  That's nearly SIX straight years of diaper changing!  Six years of looking at the same ugly plastic baby wipes tub at every diaper change. Then one day she had an "aha" moment: Why don't we just make it a part of the decor! 
As a busy wife, mother, and businesswoman, Jill's cool idea was put aside for a bit. She worked hard, moving up the corporate ladder and leading teams of great people. 
But Jill had a slow-settling epiphany of sorts. She thought she had been sacrificing FOR her family, when she had actually just been sacrificing life WITH them.  Thankfully, she figured this all out just around the same time as the layoff. 

Her 7th grade algebra teacher would shout "Carpe Diem!"  And carpe diem, she did.  Jill picked up her cool idea from a few years before and got busy creating nearly 100 prototypes on a tiny baby blue Kenmore Mini Ultra sewing machine, a gift from her grandmother for her tenth birthday.
The WipesWraps are made from a stretchy cotton, cotton-spandex, or cotton-polyester blend material which is why they need to be washed in cold water by hand.  They were made to originally fit Pampers brand of disposable wipes but I think that they will work on others as well. Now, the one at the top that is mine, it is the bathroom Cottonelle wipes so that is why it's small and the wrap was too big. So, don't make that same mistake that I did.
 
 
I have to admit, I love this design the best of all! It has all three of my favorite colors that I wear more than anything.  It's called Pink BackGammon.
 
But, what if you have problems getting the lid to stay down?
 
Sometimes, especially with new wipes containers and a brand-new WipesWraps, things are a bit snug at first. 

There are a few little tricks that can help:
 
**Store the container upside-down, closed, for the first night or two to "break in" the stretch of the cloth.
**Be sure that the plastic contacts of the latching mechanism on the container are able to connect. **With the WipesWraps on and the lid closed, hold the button of the wipes container and gently bend it upwards(Good to do this in conjunction with trick #1!)

i love the covers it makes the container look nice instead of just that plain boring plastic sitting out in the room!

Thank you Mary for your wonderful review! Your honest opinion makes our product shine and we're grateful for that. As a note, WipesWraps are best-fit to Pampers brand tubs, as they are the highest-selling (by far!)...but as you see, even with a much smaller tub, they bring on the style!

Squeeze Charlie for us!

Thank you,
Jill
