I've been using disposable wipes cause we got a ton as gifts. But, I'd like to use my cloth ones once those are used up. I've been reading old threads and a lot of people use a spray bottle. Can I just put the wipes solution onto the wipes and store them in one of the disposable wipes platic tubs? My son poops several times a day so we'd go through them fast.

If you knew about how many you would need for a day that should be fine. but when I tried that by the second day they smelled mildewy.

I keep mine wet in a wipes warmer but I make my solution with a healthy splash of vinegar. If not you can put your solution in a spray bottle and spray the baby's butt or the wipe as needed.

I keep mine wet w/ just filtered water in a warmer. when I refill I move the ones that have been in there longest to the top. my warmer only holds about a day worth. sometimes I adda drop of tto to the warmer before I put the wipes & water in. no mildewy problems here.

I don't like spraying on DS's bum directly--doesn't work to get the wipe wet enough for me. I have a squirt bottle and wet the wipe just like I would at the sink and use that.

This is what we do. I'm usually changing it out every day or day and a half anyway.

We use a pump-top thermos, keeps the water warm for a few days.
