What do you store your cloth wipes in? I am switching over to cloth wipes and I don't know what to store them in. How do you keep them moist?<br>

I like using an pretty basket (with a lid, we have a small picnic basket looking one), though we also have used old huggies containers. Then we just used a spray bottle or squirt bottle with some water in it to wet the wipes with.

we keep ours in a wipe warmer, and use a solution of 2C water, 2 drops each lavender and tea tree essential oil, & 1 very small squirt of dr. bronner's soap. it's a modification of a "recipe" i got from the baby lane when i was cloth diapering my first baby, who is now 15! the funny thing is that not only dh, but the three oldest kids can all make this solution up, and we use the wipes for dirty faces, hands, etc. etc. i suspect we'll keep one warmer of these wipes around long after our littlest one stops wearing diapers.

I keep mine in a stack on the changing table dry and then wet them in a Huggies wipes container filled with distilled water as needed. With winter approaching the water is too cold though so I'm looking into getting either a wipes warmer to keep the water warmer or using a thermos.

I use a sposie wipes container, and have a spray bottle of water with a tiny bit of baby soap in it. I just wet the wipes before I take the poopy diaper off.<br><br>
Some people use a peri bottle, and that would probably work better. I've just been too lazy to look for mine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I keep them dry in a basket on the bathroom counter. This way the older kids can grab one whenever they need one. (or me when there is no toilet paper in the middle of the night! LOL)
