Prince Lionheart Warmies

Friday, February 12, 2010

We bought these Prince Lionheart Warmies for cleaning our baby's face. They are made of soft bamboo, and are really awesome warm face wipes. There are a few cons we've had to contend with, though. One, many of the bamboo cloths easily fall apart in the wash and fray on the edges pretty bad. Two, the cloths begin to smell bad a few days or so after being in the warmer. Three, the cloths get brown on the edges in the warmer after a while. I've seen other posts that complain about these same things, too.

I don't really know what to do about the fraying. I still use some of the frayed warmie cloths. Even though they look raggedy, they still clean faces. I'm tempted to go out and buy some new warmie cloths, but wouldn't that just be supporting an inferior product? I wish there were other brands of warmie cloths I could use. I thought about using regular cotton baby cloths in the warmer, which I still might do.

For the bad smell, I found a solution. I don't know if it is the best, but it seems to work and not cause any problems. I soak the pillow (which is a separate piece that sits at the bottom of the warmer) in BabyGanics hand sanitizer rather than water. I figured the bad smell was caused by bacteria growing in the warmer. And using a "baby" hand sanitizer would be safe enough. (Note, I don't soak the warmie cloths in the hand sanitizer, just the pillow)

To prevent the edges of the cloths from getting brown, I use distilled water rather than tap water. Our tap water has so much calcium/lime deposits. I think this is what turns brown. These minerals seem to cook/burn a little while on the cloths in the warmer.

Anyway, I think these warmies are really great for cleaning baby's face in the morning, at night, or whenever you need to. You can put a little baby wash, olive oil, or essential oils into the water that you soak the cloths in or just use plain water (or distilled water). I've tried both, and either works great.

You should contact the company to get an exchange.
