So I was talking to DH about going all cloth for the household, except family cloth( don't know if even I could do them) I already cloth diaper and use mama cloth. So he wasn't totally against un paper towels and cloth hankies and napkins! So excited!! I found some really pretty towels on Etsy :)

Also has anyone used cloth knitted scrubies for doing dishes?

We use cloth for everything. I buy paper towels occasionally because nothing cleans windows like a nice paper towel, but we do everything, even family cloth.

At first we were just going to use it for us girls when we pee and then I was tired of the kids having TP "crumbs" when I wiped them and then I just started using it and SO refused. Well we ran out of TP and he started using wipes and he won't go back to normal TP now!

We don't currently have anyone in diapers so I just wash them alone in a load. Little bit of bleach and regular homemade detergent. You could use TTO as a disinfectant as well. They come out clean and great.

This is coming from someone who refused to switch to cloth for over a year after being introduced because I could not get over the poop in my washer. lol
