What are the best option for cloth diaper wipes?
Make your own (and if so, how to), or purchase them? Suggestions, please!
You can usually find them for sale on eBay. Otherwise it's fairly easy to make your own from fleece that has been cut into an 8X10 size, or whatever size you prefer.
My sis-in-law uses those thin cleaning cloths (like for wetting down and wiping a sink, but not a sponge). You can buy them at the cleaning aisle of the supermarket in most countries (I can't remember the brand name in the US... but they have narrow pale blue and white stripes... made of some material that doesn't fray).
They come in packs of about 4-8 large cloths and she cuts each one into maybe 4-ish smaller ones for use as baby wipes. They launder fine and dry quickly (I also used this exact same system for awhile with my oldest child, in fact - just dampen the dry cloth with water from a squeeze bottle and use cloth to wipe baby. I stacked mine up in a cute basket next to baby's change table, and then each one would go into the laundry basket after use). The advantage is that they are very cheap and easy to create. If some get too stained through the wash after years of use, you can always throw those ones out then and make a few more.
Hope this helps... if you are interested in this let me know and I can try to look up the brand next time I'm in the supermarket.
Trying to be extremely cheap, why not cut up some old towels. I used them and they actually worked better than any other wipes.
Thanks for the tips! Karen - fleece is a great idea. I'm sure that would be very soft on the baby's skin!
I just wrote a hub about how to make cloth diaper wipes and how to use them. Check it out:

I hope this helps!

I have extensive experience and research in cloth diapering and I'd love to answer your questions! I think that not enough parents (and parents-to-be) out there know how much cloth diapering has changed and how easy it is! Therefore, I'm doing all I can to spread the word about it and help others...

Which diaper type is better - cloth or disposable?
