    Seriously, if I had to do a poop at someones house and there was only cloth wipes instead of loo paper....I'd excuse myself and go for a drive to the local macca's.

    Lol. We do this. But we wash with water first (a squirt bottle) and dry off with little towels. So it's not really using cloths in place of paper.

    Do you feel judged? I have no problem with it, but wouldn't expect my guests to do it.

    Tbh I'd find the local macca's loo far more gross than using cloth wipes lol! Everything is so sanitized now. What did people use for 1000s of years before loo roll was invented? And period pads etc. I don't use cloth wipes but I don't think it's gross if they are well washed.

    Oh we have paper too. I would never expect guests to do it. That said guests leave my toilet lid up and I think that's utterly revolting so it's really an individual thing isn't it.

    Do I feel judged by this thread or in general? Neither, really. I actually feel a hell of a lot cleaner this way, so I find it quite amusing that people think it's so disgusting.

    I was going to say I think most family cloth users would be using a bidet or spray bottle first. If you are then hot washing and drying in the sun, it's pretty hygienic.

    The difference is with a nappy you're not wiping your **** with something that had someone else's crap on it (Unless you've bought 2nd hand nappies which is a whole other thread).

    Meh, I don't see a problem with it. Am I motivated to do it? Nope!
