So I use cloth diapers and menstrual pads...

would it be ridiculous to go the extra step for cloth wipes for my son and when I urinate? We are spending so much on toilet paper that we are considering cutting up old t shirts for wipes and using those for my pee and my baby and then buying the adult wet wipes for our bowel movements.

Is that weird?

  • You will probably spend more doing laundry that way. Wasting a lot of water to wash all that for sure. I can understand cloth diapers and pads... but wipes just seems like they would not be cost effective in the long run. ie: water usage, energy to do the extra laundry. Not to mention other sanitary issues that could arise. Sounds like a good idea until you run the numbers... then maybe not so good. ;o)

  • I think it's a damned good idea lol. Of course you'd have more laundry then. And make sure you keep some tissue around for guests.

  • No, I don't think it's weird at all.

  • The wet wipes are actually really bad on your sewer system or septic tank despite what the packaging says.
