This is something I've definitely noticed myself! We use disposable wipes when we're out with DD, and it takes way too many of them to clean up a poopy mess. Today even DH was commenting about how much nicer cloth wipes are

I needed 4-5 sposies for one poop change, and I need maybe three cloths for a real big poop. Plus since I only had 10 cloth wipes I ran out before I did laundry (did I mention this was our first week?) so I went back to the sposies I had on hand and they were so soapy I wanted to rinse off DDs bottom AFTER I used the sposies, just 'cause I had seen how nice and clean she was with cloth. Also before, she had terrible bleeding rashes with every poop and now that we have switched her bum is so happy and clean and intact and I can't say anything better than that. I will be ordering more cloth wipes as soon as I can.

I have no idea how they are using the tp, and frankly don't really want to know. I am just flabbergasted everytime. DH makes them goto Costco and buy more :LOL
