We just use cut up t-shirts, in a basket on the back of the toilet, dirty ones in a tin pot (with a drop or two of lavendar oil in it) next to the toilet.<br>
Best,<br>

We just use face clothes. Since we don't need them as much for the kids anymore (the ones we used for wipes), it was just natural to keep using them for TP. We can get face cloths 3/$1 at the dollar store but I bought most of mine cheaper at Walmart. Or, as mentioned above, make your own!

I use cut up squares of old T-shirts. They kinda roll up a little if you dry them, but we usually hang/air-dry anyway.<br>
I have gotten so used to cloth that I can't stand paper anymore because it leaves little "crumbs" in the cracks IYKWIM

I picked up a used flannel sheet for a buck at a thrift store and cut that down into wipes. I zig-zagged around the edges to reduce fraying and viola - family cloth! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Save money. Recycle a few old Tshirts. I made mine 6x6 and got almost 80 wipes out of 6 shirts.

Absolutely you can use scraps. If you want to buy, flannel baby wipes work fine. Just one example here: <a href="http://www.nopins4baby.com/store/catalog.php?item=83&catid=6&ret=catalog.php%3Fcategory%3D6" target="_blank">http://www.nopins4baby.com/store/cat...3Fcategory%3D6</a>

I use the baby wipes from <a href="http://www.shirtsofbamboo.com" target="_blank">Shirts of Bamboo</a> as well as some scraps that I already had.
