I mainly use wipes from www.darlingdiapers.com . They are SO gorgeous! I like ones with sherpa - it's great for getting those little butts clean. I also like velour for the softness factor. Little Lounging Lizards also has nice wipes in different fabric combinations. Anyway, somewhere around $1 a wipe is what I pay.
As far as solutions go - I just use a regular spray bottle filled with plain water. I keep a stack of dry wipes in a basket near my changing station, grab one at changing time and spray it. For really stubborn poops I spray the bottom directly.
I do wipe my son each time I change him, even if it's just pee.
For 2 kids I have about 36 cloth wipes - I do laundry every day though.
Cloth wipes are awesome - they do a MUCH better job of getting things clean!

I use the fleece wipes by Fuzzibunz, they are SOOOOOO soft. I think I have about 18 or so. Sometimes I wipe after pee, sometimes not, usually depends on how squirmy he's being!

For my wipe solution, I hava a spray bottle and I put some of his baby wash it and fill up with warm water.

I have a bunch of single layer flannel wipes from www.smjae.com but she is going through chemo right now and closed. They were very economical so have have about 4 dozen. I wanted a lot so that I have plenty for the changing table, some in the diaper bag, and a baggy full in my purse. I use them when we go out to sanitize tables, high chairs, etc....

I then have a few velour/sherpa ones. I will dig those out for big messes. I do wipe after just pees.

I use water and a few drops of Tea Tree Oil.

I have always wiped my boys and girl at EVERY diaper change, there is no need to stop that now that you are planning on using cloth wipes. I just run my wipe under the fawcet then head to the diaper changing, no special solution really needed. I started out using only k-mart big pack of like 25 for 5$ wash clothes, but I've been making my own recently since I have a certain favorite kind of wipe/washcloth. I prefer 1 side to be a soft terry and the other to be either flannel, cotton velour, cotton sherpa, and I have one that is hemp/cotton fleece but I basically use up my scraps lol. Luck in your search

We had a ton of those cheepy terry baby washcloths and I have been using those. I make my own wipe solution (1TBS Dr Bronners, 1tsp apricot oil, 1-2 tsp aloe and a few drops essential oil, mix with 1 cup boiled distilled water). I fold the wipes in half and make the solution in a "recycled" diposable wipes box.

This is working really well for me. Even my babysitter is 100% sold on the idea and wishes she had done this with her own dd

I have around 80 wipes from Emi Beans and I love them. My favorites are 8x8" flannel with sherpa. I just keep a pile by each sink and wet one on the way to a diaper change with warm tap water. I do wipe the kids at every change but I only use about 10 wipes a day so 36 would give you lots to use.

The prices vary but for most they are around $1 each for WAHM wipes.

I have Kushies flannel wipes, and use just water. I also have some wipes I bought from another mama. They are flannel and terry cloth. I have 1 wipe from fullmoonbabygear. I love all my cloth wipes. I got the Kushies ones from a lady on Ebay, but I wouldn't get anything from her again, it took about 2 months to get them. I think she may have been dishonest. As far as the fullmoonbabygear one, she is a fabulous woman, and it is a really pretty wipe. I am not sure what kind of fabric, but I love it. The used ones I got from a lady here whom I made friends with, and I like them alot.
Anyways, sorry for rambling.

I just use plain water too, and I wet each wipe as needed. Or, if it's messy, I'll wet a handful at a time. I don't like to let them sit in water or a solution, though, because I'm afraid they would mildew if you didn't go through them fast enough. Besides, a spray bottle is very convenient.

I love Darling Diapers wipes, too. I have about 3 dozen of them. I just keep them dry, in a stack under the changing table and spray them for each use (pee and poop) with a diaper wipe solution recipe I got off of Punkin Butt. It is basically water, Dr. Bronner's liquid soap, aloe vera, tea tree oil, lavender oil and olive oil. I love it because it seems to get her little bum cleaner than just water, smells great and also moistures her skin. I also keep a stack of wipes by her high chair - and those I just wet under the faucet to use on her face and hands. I even use them for washclothes in the tub for her. I love them! My faves are the flannel with sherpa.

XOXO

I had a ton that I made while I was pg, but they slowly disappeared and I needed to buy some more. I bought 40 for $13 on ebay, new WAHMade. I haven't seen them yet, but I even got free shipping. The free shipping offer is gone on this auction now, but keep your eye out. I think it's still a good deal, they were $0.40 a piece and with this shipping they work out to be $0.50 a piece. She also has boy and neutral wipes. I am going to get those too eventually.

I'm waiting on my order from FMBG and Darling Diapers, but I have a great cloth wipe from Punkinbutt, and I also just made a couple of cloth wipes out of leftover fleece from a blanket I was making. I just cut a square out with pinking shears. It won't hold up for that long, but it's getting us by for now.
Oh, and my DD is hillarious. She now freaks out if I try to use a sposie wipe on her. She points at the spray bottle of wipe solution and says *more*. She likes me to spray her directly - like her own little bidet.
I made the solution recipe from the Fuzbaby website and I made it with lavender eo for the at-home bottle and tea tree oil for the diaper bag. They both smell heavanly and do a MUCH better job of getting DD clean than the sposies do. HTH!

I actually just made about 20 cloth wipes last night. I used a very light flannel. We have about 40 wipes in all (about 30 made by me). I DO like the nice wipes from WAHMs but I only have so much money to spend on CDing and would rather buy the dipes from them. I also will occassionally use a washcloth.

For a wipe "solution", I just use water!
