i have noticed that with such a large family the septic system cant take the tp from 6 people so besides cost on actual tp theres more reasons to switch

I really love this idea but we live with my grandmother for now and I think she might croak if she got that surprise. She's been gracious with the diapers but I think FC would be too much. Can't wait to be on our feet again, this is so going to happen.

I could easily use family cloth. DH said he draws the line. Good idea to do both!

I have a ton of flannel. Looks like I may need to make a test run of FC!

Yes I know I am quoting from 10 months ago.

I noticed what she was saying about quantity of TP used each year. We as a family of 4 would go through 1 double roll of TP a day. So 365 double rolls or 730 single rolls a year. Since switching to family cloth 6-8 months ago we have bought 1 package of 4 single rolls. Since we wash them with our diapers it hasn't cost us more to wash them.

I also had already acquired them in my search for the perfect for us baby wipe so have a variety of wipes. Our sink is right next to our toilet so I like to wet the cloth regardless. I feel cleaner. I have ours set up really simple. I have them stacked neatly on the back of the toilet and hang a wetbag on the door handle. On wash day I just turn the bag inside out into the washer. I rarely even see the wipes until they are once again clean and ready to be stacked.

My husband wasn't on board at first but caved when I reminded him how clean he felt when we splurged on the disposable wet wipes for the bathroom. Now he uses a combo. Whichever he is in the mood for. I do think it helps that our wash routine removes any stains. Even the messy ones from that time of the month come out of the wash stain free. If they were stained I think he might not be quite so accepting of them.

I forgot for visitors we try to always keep a roll up at all times though sometimes we do forget to replace the TP as it isn't used as often any more.
