Talking Do you use cloth wipes? And what's your fav type if you do?

I'm thinking about it but need some suggestions to start. Is it easier or harder? Do you only do it at home?

Which brands do you prefer? Bamboo, hemp or cotton?

Thanks Mamas!!

I thought it was easier. I used disposables when we first started cloth diapering and found myself putting them in the diapers. Not fun for washing. I like the wipes I make. One side flannel the other side fleece.

It definitely is easier because everything gets thrown into the same place and you don't have to separate poopy disposable wipes from your diapers and put them in different places. We have bamboo, flannel, and cotton wipes all different brands and I like them all. My favorites are Thirsties Fab wipes.

Yep, yep, yep. Way easier - it all goes in the same pail and Thirsties wipes RULE!

I think it's easier, you just wash them with the diapers. I have several brands but my fav is grovia. They are less than a dollar each. And they feel nice. And if they get stained you can sun them out. Or since they are white you can bleach them too. I also have thirsties which are nice, but they are more pricey. Amazon has the grovias for 10.95 for 12 wipes..

Some people say the threads come loose but that hasn't happened to mine much, it's not a big deal tonic off the loose thread it's not like the whole thing comes undone.

I made my own and I think they are better/easier. I like that I know exactly what is in my solution and I like that I can just wash them with my diapers.

I just started and love it so far since I can just throw everything in the wet bag. We have Kissaluvs wipes right now and they're ok. Wanting to try Thirties...
