I also cut up two old shirts for family wipes and use a squirt bottle before wiping. Pretty simple and effective

Thanks for the tips and affirmation of my sanity haha. Glad I'm not the only person trying to live a free-er cleaner life

Definitely! I'm glad it helped you. I also used a squirt bottle for ours - the peri bottle I was given at the hospital! Our family cloth right now is actually a mix of a few single layer flannel and double layer flannel wipes I have left from the cd days. I also cut up an old fleece sleep shirt and tshirt material sleep pants also. I just cut them all out and in different sizes so I could see what we liked best. Once we've picked a favorite and have some extra money to buy some I'll look for a wahm to buy from but for now we're tp free and the wipes didn't cost anything!

Let us know how it works for you!

Michelle mom to DD , DS , & lil DD plus and spending my days

I found some that look pretty cool on etsy. Waiting for extra cash and to see how it goes for us before buying. Here's the link

These ones are my fav! They'll hide stains! Hahaha and I just love the earthy rustic look to them
