It’s no secret that toilet paper is currently in short supply.

Running low on the essential? We’ve found an alternative.

Cheeky Wipes is an eco-friendly brand that specialise in reusable, washable products - and many people are currently purchasing the British labels loo roll alternative.

Designed for both adult and babies, the brands washable cotton wipes are 15cm x 15cm squares and come in packs of 25.

You can use them just like normal toilet roll or baby wipes, but instead of throwing them out or flushing down the toilet, you wash and reuse.

The website currently states: “Due to the current situation, we are receiving an exceptionally high number of orders and are prioritising getting those orders out to customers.

How do you clean them, you ask?

The brand suggests placing all dirty wipes into a mesh bag and then putting them in your washing machine on a normal wash up to 60C.

By using the wipes you’re not only being friendlier to the planet, but also, to your bank balance, as a pack designed the last years costs only £16.

On Amazon, the wipes have an impressive 78% five-star rating, many calling them “brilliant” and “lovely and soft”.

One loyal customer wrote: “These have now been washed over and over again over several months....they wash up pure white, stay soft and don’t shrink”.

Meanwhile a parent said: “These will save so much time and money and keep your baby far cleaner than traditional baby wipes”.
