Compostable dairy/teat wipes?
« on: April 03, 2022, 08:29:07 pm »
As title says - does anyone know of compostable teat wipes, preferably online availability?


Oh and I know about using muslin and warm water etc, it just doesn't work if you need to milk 10 goats...

We did manage to get water-based dairy wipes from our agri merchant for a while, but it's all the chemical ones now. 

If you do find anything, please let us know! 
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

No luck with finding any... so I am going down the washable cotton clothes (Ikea sells baby cloths at 4.50 for 10) and Milton solution...


Just annoying - as in extra work and washing machine use - but my goats (esp at this time of year) manage to get their udders quite dirty and I do need to clean before milking.


I could use waterbased wipes for humans, but that would become expensive very quickly.
