I have squeamish issues and am a major germ-phobe. My hands are falling apart from all of the washing that I do.
It's a major reason that I've had trouble becoming more green in the first place - my addiction to paper towels. But I'm working on that issue and am using a dishcloth and towel much more often now.
I want to cloth diaper but it's got to be new or I just can't do it.
if i went through over a dozen pairs of underwear each day and they cost $15/ea and i outgrew them in a few months, you bet i'd buy them used!
I think it's a fantastic idea, providing they've been well looked after.

I had some cloth diapers and covers gifted to me when I first switched DS from disposables to cloth. I was very grateful for the diapers and used them.
Also, ahem -- some people may not be welcome there for 30 days. Not mentioning any names or anything. :
I have bought used diapers but have not been happy with them. Not b/c they were used, the actual style of diaper just didn't work out. Glad I didn't pay full price to find out. I think at this point the only thing I would buy used is FB or BG. Or maybe ME. ME is so cheap second hand! And no to the used underwear. My dd used her cousins sz 2 undies for awhile and it didn't bother me. But I don;t know if I'll even pass her undies to her sister. Probably not since they seem to be wearing out already.
I answered "yes" though because I may consider buying used cloth diapers from a stranger, if money was tight or something.

ETA - I use pockets, which clean very easily and I can easily replace inserts if they're yucky. Not sure that I'd buy used AIO since I'd worry about getting the inside clean.
$15. a pair? Ehhh.... I'd be real darn careful of how mine underpants are treated and I'd still be saying NO to used.

all of my diapers but one was bought used. i can't afford to buy brand new cds yet it is very important to me to CD so used is the way i go!
I do have new prefolds, though. They seem to be harder to find used. I don't care about stains but broken elastic or snaps are past my ability to fix if the dipe is priced high. I did get some good snappi-type dipes with a few holes for $5. That was awesome. They are super soakers!

I buy new undies because they're cheap and I definitely get my use out of them, but used undies would actually be fine after a hot wash with bleach and a hot drier cycle. Its a personal preference to buy new, not a safety issue.
