Hello,
I want to try cloth instead of toilet paper. What do you use to rinse down there before wiping with cloth? I tried a spray bottle but it didn't work very well (it didn't spray well unless it is upright). Any suggestion would be appreciated!

we don't use any spray. i wouldn't use it with toilet paper so i've never found it necessary with cloth.

You could use a peri bottle or something like it. I've tried that, but I don't really like it. You can just wet a wipe with warm water if you think you'll need it. Most of the time I use the wipes dry.

Most of the time, I use them dry, too.

Of course we also have a cup on the side of the bathtub for the BS/ACV hairwashing, and sometimes I will fill that with water, or water+ACV to rinse before drying with cloth (especially when AF is visiting).

And I t-shirt fabric for wipes!

We have a bidet sprayer that we added to our toilet for cloth diapering. It works great for it's intended purpose, as well! Hubby thought the water would be too cold, but it's not at all uncomfortable. Cannot remember the website we bought the sprayer, but we paid about $40 for a satin nickel one (cheaper in white or chrome versions). Super easy to install. If you want specifics on brand and website, let me know and I will dig it up for you.

I don't use anything to spray. I just use the cloth, but I do wet the cloth with water for poop.
