Exactly! So you save the Earth by not flushing toilet paper, but you use extra amounts of water down your washing machine cleaning those reusable towels? Doesn't make sense to me. I can only imagine the amounts of laundry reusable toilet paper would cause.

OK, Aviano has a point. But homes with babies generally do laundry a lot more often. If you do laundry just a couple of days a week, just think how long those used towels are going to sit in your laundry hamper stinking and growing bacteria. Blech!

they really aren't that bad as long as they are only used for #1 and not #2

I've used them in a pinch when money was tight and didn't mind.

Studies show that properly cleaning cloth diapers (rinsing, washing drying) equals the damage to the enviroment as  disposables. Plus...babies get rashes more often too, they dont breathe as well...so Ive heard anyways
