I use a recycled 'sposie wipe container - put in water and some liquid soap and a few wipes and keep it at my change area.

You can keep a spray bottle of diaper potion or water on your changing table to wet the wipes. I usually just wet them in the sink before embarking on said changing event!<br>
I find cloth wipes easier than paper ones because you can just leave them in the dipe and throw the whole thing in the pail. I hated digging the paper ones out of the diaper and then trying to decide whether to just throw them away or try to rinse the poop off them into the potty and then throw them away. Actually I'd usually just run them throught the wash and then throw them away.

I keep water in a sposie wipes warmer & just dunk the wipe in the water whenever I'm using a wipe. It's on a table next to where the dipes are.

I just wet mine in the sink when I need them, that way I don't need to worry about bacteria growing in the water and whatnot.

I get my wipes wet with my wipes solultion (tea tree oil, lavender oil, baby soap and vitamin e oil). Then I put them in the wipes warmer. Tea tree is a natrual anti-fungal anti-bacteral agent. This meathod works perfectly for me.

That's what we've always done too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

For at home I just wet them in then sink. For out and about I have a peri bottle (or you could use any squirt bottle) filled just with water and I use that.<br><br>
Also wanted to add that it takes a lot less cloth wipes than disposable wipes to clean a mess. It has to be one really nasty poop to take more than one cloth one!

I have dry cloth wipes with a spray bottle filled with water, tea trea, lavendar, almond oil and castile soap. I spray on the wipe what I need and it works wonderfully.

I just have a basket full of pretty wipes next to my sink, and I just wet them as needed, use them, and then throw them in with the rest of the diaper laundry (bucket in the bathtub).

When Sprogly was newborn I used a spray bottle at the changing station. Once he was older I just wet them at the sink before changing a poopy diaper. For pee diapers I don't wipe, unless he really got soaked for some reason.<br><br>
I use cheap terrycloth washcloths. They do a great job at wiping off all the poop. Sprogly's a messy pooper, and I almost never have any need for more than one.

We keep a stack of cloth wipes in the drawer right under the changing table. When it's time to change dipes we run some warm water into a bowl with a squirt of dr. b's tea tree oil soap - take it to the changing area and drop as many wipes as we need into it - never going back to it with a dirty wipe.<br><br>
The wipes that are particularly messy go to the toilet for Mini-Shower treatment just like the dipes - all others go straight into the dry pail.<br><br>

I just wet a handful in the sink. (I use baby washcloths) I keep them folded in fours and wet them that way. Then the ones that I don't use for this diaper change will either dry out before the next one or will stay damp enough for the next change. Either way, it's super easy.<br>
Sometimes I'll use a sposie wipe and then toss it in the diaper pail. After it goes throught the wash I just throw it away. (I don't have a trash near the diaper change area). the box of sposie wipes I have are dried out now (can you tell how often I use them?! LOL

we use the bottom of a tupperware conatiner that lost its lid! At the start of the day I put in water and a squirt of Dr Bronners, and put in a bunch of wipes. If I run out before the end of the day I just refill. It works great! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I know some people keep a pump-top thermos near their changing table that they fill with warm/hot water at the beginning of the day. Saves needing to trek to a sink.<br><br>
Or then there's the route that many others here have mentioned... re-using wipes containers, or using a wipe warmer, which is what I might try when the kidlet is here.<br><br><br><br>

OK Ill bve honest I dont have any cute baskets or a pretty arangment for my wipes. I suellay pull them out of the laundry basket when I am fishing for hte the perfect dipe. Usually becaseu I only have enough diapers for about 1 1/2 days, and I NEVER put them away, WHy?? So I can take them out in 5 min. the diaper basket is next to couch at this moment. LOL I go to the sink wet the wipe and go find the stinky babe and change her. LOL<br><br>
Sometimes I get ambitious and i put htem away neatly fold my wipes and mix a great smelling mixof water, ea tree oil and lav oil. But in real life with my kids and my biz. It RARELY happens LOL

I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> our cloth wipes! They're so much softer than the throw away kind and thicker and work better too. I also just wet them in the sink then take them to where I'm changing her. I often wet a few at a time and leave the extras on a tray next to the bed for the next time. Then they just get tossed in the pail with the diapers.<br><br>
super easy.<br><br>
