We have yet to get cloth wipes (just switched) and it is SOOO annoying to have to throw away one disposable wipe. I think cloth wipes would actually be more convenient at this point. We will probably still keep some baby wipes around for sticky hands or things like that, though. And we always have a pack in the car just in case.
We just cleaned out our drain pump screen on our washer and there were half a dozen nursing pads, a sock, and tons of lint clogging it. I haven't used nursing pads since Jan/Feb. I would be afraid to wash them because if a nursing pad can fit through the drain pipe, certainly wipes can. And I would think they'd eventually break down, make it through the screen in pieces, and into the pump and impeller. Or maybe I'm just paranoid because that's fresh in my mind. Lol
