Her Majesty’s Closet Review and Giveaway!


SAP’s Story: Fleece AIO Cloth Diaper

I love WAHM business, and their awesome products! I was fortunate enough to review the Fleece AIO Diaper from Her Majesty’s Closet, and she even sent me some great wipes to review too!

Want to know all about the Fleece AIO diaper I reviewed? Read the complete review HERE!

What SAPsMaMa LOVES about the Fleece AIO Cloth Diaper!

  • Breathable diaper! So less diaper rash!
  • Doesn’t take any longer to dry than my other AIO diapers (air dry)
  • Personalized with the fabrics and patterns YOU love!
  • Fit is wonderful! No leaks!
  • Best of both worlds! Easy to use and in one piece like a disposable diaper, but unique, personalized, breathable, chemical free, and adorable, very unlike a disposable diaper! All the good in my opinion!
  • You can feel when baby’s diaper is wet through the fleece so you know when to change them and they’re not sitting in a yucky diaper!
  • Great price for a quality and unique diaper

Another fleece AIO diaper Melissa made! I love this pattern!

Disadvantages of the Fleece AIO Cloth Diaper!

  • Our daycare was not comfortable using fleece cover diapers.
  • No keep-baby-dry layer


Suggestions for Improvement of Fleece AIO Cloth Daiper!

  • I’d like the Velcro tabs to stick out less! Think this is personal preference, but it could entice a stripping toddler also 🙂
  • Possibility of snaps instead of Velcro for closures!
  • Improved, larger laundry tabs that hold the Velcro better in the wash.

SAP’s Story: Her Majesty’s Closet Cloth Wipes!


An example of some of Melissa’s Cloth Wipes! (Not the ones I received)

With my review of the Fleece AIO diaper the Her Majesty’s Closet makes, I was also sent a couple of their cloth wipes as a surprise! I was happy and excited to test them out since we were short wipes and had not time to sew up some more, plus we had only flannel wipes, these wipes Her Majesty’s Closet makes were terry and fleece! Completely different, and I looked forward to seeing how they compared to our regular ones!

At first hubby was reluctant to use them in the wipes container when he made the wet wipes (he’s the most excellent wipe maker!), he didn’t like that they were too long for the container (they are 9.5in x 4.5 in) and bulkier compared to the other ones so they took up more room. I made him do it anyway lol. They worked out well as wet wipes, especially when SAP had a mighty poopoo, the terry just grabbed everything and we didn’t need as many wipes as usual, so there’s a plus!

Since hubby still wasn’t sold on using them in the traditional wet wipe method we had always done, I spoke with Melissa at Her Majesty’s Closet and got her opinion on how she uses them. With her advise we tried a different method: spritzing the dry wipe with a wipe solution before using it! This worked decently since the terry soaked up the solution well instead of it running off like it does for our flannel wipes when they’re newer, but I like the wet wipe method, so had hubby go back to that lol. One thing Melissa did point out that I too do like about these wipes is that the back is fleece so, if you spritz it instead of using wet wipe method, your hands never get wet! The fleece will keep them dry! And with two different fabrics it’s quite easy to know which side you wiped with so you never touch a yucky side, always a plus!

I like the wipes, they have their place in our wipes collection and are a good addition to help with our diaper changes! They’ve held up well durability wise, are well sew, don’t fray at all, and I love that they match SAP’s diaper! I always feel obligated to use these wipes whenever I change her fleece AIO diaper so they match, I know, weird right? lol. It makes me smile though 🙂

What SAPsMaMa LOVEs about the Her Majesty’s Closet Cloth Wipes!

  • Match my Fleece AIO cloth diaper from Her Majesty’s closet!
  • The terry cleans SAP’s bum really well!
  • The fleece keeps your hands dry if you spritz the wipe instead of using wet wipe method!
  • Well sewn!

Suggestions for Improvement for the HMC Cloth Wipes: There’s Always Room For Improvement!

  • A more traditional 8×8 wipe that would fit in a normal wipe box for use with wet wipe method would be great!
  • Or, since these wipes are thicker than flannel wipes, just making the wipe 8 in long instead of 9.5 in long would ensure they fit in the container well without taking up more room in the wipes container!

***I just checked out Her Majesty’s Closet Etsy shop and Melissa did make some changes to the cloth wipes! They are now about 5×8 in, so will fit well in your wipes containers! Awesome job Melissa! 🙂 Makes me happy! ***
