When we first started using cloth for napkins - we did dish rags. Then I starting sewing and serge some cotton woven fabrics - they work well. I found that flannel is best - no ironing needing, super soft and absorbant - lots of prints to choose from.
We have the plain "hotel" white napkins from Williams Sonoma. The wash and wear well and release stains pretty easily. 100% cotton and not very expensive. They look better when they are ironed of course but I think they do alright when they aren't. I have a LOT of napkins and actually pay one of nephews to iron them for me. I love child labor.
