    And what do you think happens with cloth wipes, esp if more than one kid is in nappies? And yep, I have some second hand mcns. I know how to wash, it's not a prob

    I'm actually tempted. Hubby who is European thinks lots of people do it but that because he is used to bidets which often have cloth. It does sound more...gentle!

    I don't get how a spray bottle gets rid of the *ahem* solid waste??

    Certainly not my thing. I'm not sure I buy the less water argument. I was reading an article that said one roll of toilet paper takes 38 gallons of water. But to wash the cloths that would equal a roll you are looking at that for a washing load, more if it's not a top loader. I agree it's better bc paper isn't going into water ways, but the water excuse is redundant.

    I'll just stick with buying recycled toilet paper. The idea of the stains makes me feel sick. I cloth bummed, but adult poo seems way more gross than baby/toddler poo.

    Meh doesn't faze me. I use cloth nappies for my girls so cloth wipes aren't far off from that.

    I wouldn't do it either. I use cloth nappies as well as cloth pads and menstrual cups for myself but reusing my own sh!twipes, no thanks!! I'd be fine using them for number one's though.

    Please say its not so! I have never heard of this!
    Those poor kids, imagine when their teens and have friends over and the friends have to use these 'squares' the poor kids would want to die of shame.
    Im sorry but there are better ways to save money than this.

    I don't get the saving aspect either. Add the cost of all the cloth (and fabric isn't overly cheap) the water, power and powder and I'm sure it would work out pretty close to buying the recycled sheets 6 rolls for 3 or 4 bucks.

    Maybe it's more environmental... which as I said earlier, isn't THAT much better....
