How do you store them?
How many do you need?
How do you keep them moist/ prevent mould?
What's the best material/ brand?
Any other hints?

I used to use flannelette, lots of them don't know how many. I would just keep them dry until needed, then wet it under water. Easy.

I had itti bitti ones and some a friend made. Kept them dry in a basket in the bathroom and as I was walking in to change the baby would wet one with plain water then chuck straight in the nappy bucket with the nappy.
I had a winter baby for my first and found it hard to get a good rhythm because I like the water warm to wet the wipe so it was not so cold. The summer baby was easier.
I stopped once they started solids, happy to spray poo off a nappy but cloth wipes just got too hard basket.

I went possibly the laziest way possible and bought a roll of chux type cloths and cut them into about the right size pieces. I keep them in a basket and have a spray bottle with water and baby wash (only a tiny bit), spray when needed and wipe bum. We got a little pump spray for the nappy bag and just do the same, also comes in handy on a hot day if you just use water as a bit of a refresher.
We found they actually soften up really nicely after the first wash and we just throw them when they start looking or feeling worn. We have gone through three rolls in 2 years. With poo nappies I tend to wash them out, but my partner usually just throws them in the bucket and I honestly haven't noticed them coming out of the washing machine any worse for it.
He did confess the other day he has 'accidentally' flushed a few wipes and fortunately we haven't had any issues with the plumbing, but I wouldn't recommend doing that too often.

I did as PP did, chux wipes and a spray bottle. Also I remember big w used to have 10 packs of face washers for around $2 that I also used. They got the job done

We use small face washers and flannelette squares. Wet under the tap before use. She was a winter baby though and we had no sink upstairs where we lived then, so I had an electric kettle next to the change table that I would turn on for 20 seconds to warm up before use.
But now just under the tap and into the bucket with nappies. When out I just squirt some water on from my water bottle.

I just use damp face washers. We bought 8 and got given another 4. We used them 4 weeks straight then I must have gotten lazy with the washing and that's when I started using wipes haha. Now I use both.
