Cotton is the preferred choice in hospitals and birthing centers; it is very common to see your newborn being swaddled in cotton receiving blankets after birth. Being non-allergenic, it is an excellent choice of material for anyone who suffers from asthma or allergies, or those who have sensitive skin prone to irritation. Pediatricians will sometimes suggest using cotton clothing and blankets for babies that have eczema or other skin maladies, before they will encourage using harsh steroidal creams. Dermatologists also recommend wearing and using cotton products. Cotton has high tensile strength therefore can endure high temperatures and be sterilized. It is the only fiber that gets stronger when wet, being highly absorbent for drawing moisture out, providing premium comfort and softness for a happier baby.
Non-woven bags are the way of the future. Not only are they made out of durable and sturdy materials like polyester and cotton, they can be used over and over again, thus eliminating the need for a disposable solution. Although non-woven bags cost more up front, overtime, you will find that they are even cheaper than plastic bags. Many corporations and businesses are starting to incorporate the use of non-woven bags into their structure. They charge a small fee to the customer to own the bag, the customer in turn has something that is significantly more valuable and substantial. The customer can turn around and then reuse that same bag. Of course, non-woven bags don’t have to be used just for merchandise and groceries. Many people have started carrying around these totes. Instead of carrying huge and bulky backpacks or wearing hip packs that are too small, non-woven bags can carry just about any and everything.
