Hey, I just got the idea to use some sort of cloth for TP-- at least for pee, for now. I can probably just throw them in with my diapers, right?<br><br>
Anyone have any suggestions about fabric to use? Anyone bought a product for this purpose?

There's already <a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=674433&highlight=family+cloth" target="_blank">tons</a> of info about it.<br><br>
I researched the topic and decided to cut tee-shirt material into smallish squares (maybe 6x6). I use 'em for pee only and wash 'em with the dipes.

Thanks. I haven't switched to that (yet...) but thought I must have been crazy to consider it! Glad to know I'm not alone.

Update:<br>
I cut up a receiving blanket to make my first cloth TP. Did not know you have to serge the edges, but oh well.<br><br>
It's working great! The hardest part is remembering to use it!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Yeah-when you're washing dipes-adding a few more cloths is no big fuss. Remembering is the hard part for me too. It must mean we're making things easy on ourselves<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>

FWIW I don't sew my tee-shirt wipes at all and they do not fray--wonder if its the fabric type?

We are about to go cloth TP as soon as we run out of the last 2 rolls of regular TP. I am making some from some leftover fabric form my sons quilt. There will be nothing like wiping with Darth Vader looking at me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
