  • If you are doing laundry every day, then a dozen?

  • I did a load every other day and had 25 small washcloths that I used for wipes.

  • I used cloth dipes and wipes and I did laundry every other day. I had about 15 wipes per day and I used the little baby wash cloths in a tub with a squirt of baby shampoo and water. There are many recipes for the solution online. I don't think I ever used all 15, but I bought that initially.

  • I found aa store that sold cheap baby wash cloths and bought alot of packages. They work awesome. I do wash almost every day but sometimes every other. I always have about 30 clean and folded on hand in a wipe container and have never used them all up in 2 days. There is a way to fold them so they pop up just like disposable wipes and fit in a wipe container, I saw it on Utube.
