What do you use for baby wipes when cloth (or disposable) diapering?  Are there any good natural baby wipes out there? I try to use cloth, but seems like I end up using more of the purchased baby wipes as they are more convenient.

I alternate between pre-wetting my cloth wipes and folding them pop up style (like disposables) and keeping them a wipes box and spraying the bottom and using dry wipes to make them more convenient.

I have a stack of folded cloth wipes and a spray bottle (plain water) on the change table. When I've got DD there to change a diaper I just grab one, give it a few squirts and change away. The whole thing goes into the diaper pail with the diaper, etc. I guess I'm weird, I actually find cloth wipes more convenient because with disposable ones I had to put the wipe into another bin and it was annoying.

I also find cloth wipes more convenient.  I keep stacks of them everywhere I change diapers and just use my squirt bottle or run them under the faucet, then throw in bag with dirty diaper.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Premium Washies by BabyKicksThey have a pouch roomy enough for large hands to fit into and have saved many fingers from the dreaded remnants of diaper blowouts. The pouch can also be used to hold a bar of soap for a constant lather that older kids and adults enjoy. BEST thing about them is that they are hemp fleece!!!

We got some cheap flannell and made our own wipes.  Super easy and we actually prefer them to disposable wipes. I just cut squares, and honestly never got around to hemming all of them.  We love them so much I cut larger ones for cleaning rags.  They go right into the wet pail and into the laundry with the diapers.

We got a bunch of cheap washcloths and then just wet them down with a squidgy water bottle, then threw them in the laundry with the diapers.
