    I used older cloth nappies with warm water and vitamin E cream.

    I used chux wipes cut into quarters. Worked really well. I used water with a little castile soap (available from health food shops, its made from olive oil) and a couple of drops of lavender oil. You can keep it in a spray bottle our just pour it on your wipes in the morning for the day.

    We use these thin little face washers from kmart. They are great. They come in a pack of 12 for about $4.

    Sorry I forgot to add I like flannels because as they don't need changing as often or as they move on from nappies we use them as face wipes (of course we wash them )with both boys in nappies we had a lot of them! Now we save a lot of them for when they have gastro, they are awesome for wiping up spewy faces or for drying spew bowls and because we have a lot we just save them until we have enough to wash.

    I wouldn't throw out the old towels of you don't want to use them as bum wipes, maybe grab some nice fabric and use them as 'quilting' for burp cloths (I personally use terry flats for this) or save them trust me you will find so many uses for them when it comes to kids! We use some for under the high chair I use one between my fitted sheet and mattress protector where my boobs leak randomly, the boys sit on them on the chairs when they eat soup, we use them as inside picnic rugs..list is endless

    I use old towels on the floor under the craft table and also to line the floor between the bedroom and toilet when dd has vomiting. Or to dry the cat and dog, or wrap the cat when worming. So many uses

    I use an old pump bottle filled with a mix of water, a few squirts of organic baby wash and a couple of drops of tea tree oil. That way I can just pump the liquid onto the dry wipes (I use old towels cut up). I just give the bottle a shake now and then. I read that chamomile tea is just as good so I'm going to try that as my base next time.

    Also, when DS has a runny nose, I have a plastic container which has a divider in it and I pile fresh "wipes" on one side and pour my mixture (with a drop of eucalyptus instead of tea tree) on them and use these to wipe noses, hands and face. It's so much nicer than tissues and keeps everything and everyone clean. I pop the used ones on the other side of the divided container - this is more for DH's benefit so he doesn't have to think about where to put the used towel! You'd be surprised how complicated it can become and the last thing I want is a pile of the moist towels in the washing basket getting everything all damp and mouldy. EW.

    I cut up some flannelette wraps that I was given second hand and sewed two layers together. Imake my own solution up in a spray bottle with water, body wash & almond oil and sprat before I use them.

    I use little thin facewashers too (I think they came in a multi-pack from Big W). I have a glass bottle with some water, baby wash and baby oil and I just shake then use it to give him a wipe. We still use disposable wipes if he's done a really gross sloppy poo though

    I love having cloth wipes because it means I don't need to make a separate trip to the bin on my way to the nappy bucket, haha.
