I HATE using a spray bottle of wipe solution. It's messy. It gets the baby, and the cover, and whatever I'm changing her on wet. Surely, there's a better way to wipe her butt? I can't presoak wipes in bag or box, because they get moldy here after a day, really. What else are you doing in regards to wipes?(cloth, I mean.)

I never use any sort of solution, just run warm water from the sink. It is very rare that I change him anywhere other than a bathroom. If I absolutely have to- like if we were at the park or lake for a long time, I just bring warm water in a small wide-mouth thermos and dip the wipes into the water as I need them.

Same here, I just put the wipe(s) under the warm tap right before I change DS. If I'm going to be out somewhere w/o access to sinks I'll take a peri bottle with me.

That's what I do, too - I have a stack of cheapie washcloths in the bathrooms, and I just wet one at the sink before sitting down to change.

I've been using a squirt bottle (top looks like those sporty water bottles) found in the store by the sample sizes and travel containers. I like that better than the spray bottles.

I have a wipe warmer (the well of it is contunious, no cracks in the design) that I fill half way. Put in a squirt of baby wash and 3 drops of tea tree oil. This keeps the mold down. I dont put the wipe in until I use it. That way if it does get yuchy, I dont have to wash the wipes, just change the solution. Or, if I contaminate the solution with stool, again, I just change the solution, not the wipes. You could use a large tupperware or something, the wipe warmer is nice though, because you just flip the lid up quick and dip and squeeze excess. If I am going out I moisten a few wipes to take with us before we go, or bring dry wipes and the squeezy bottle (with a sport type top, not a sprayer). HTH
