I just figured out what Family Cloth is. I've seen that term around but never really thought to investigate it.
For those of you who didn't know, family cloth is basically cloth toilet paper. Just like there are cloth baby wipes, made from cotton, bamboo, flannel, or the likes, there are cloth toilet paper/wipes for the rest of the family. From searching around, people have been using them roughly since 2007, and of the people using them, most are women -- men still prefer their TP.
I'm not sure what to think of this. Yes, we do cloth diaper, but I guess in my mind I have a big differentiation between my bodily output versus my toddler's. Give me time, and I'll be willing to try this, especially as our TP supply is dwindling. I've read about thriftily cutting apart flannel or cotton sheets/blankets/t-shirts and then washing those either with cloth diapers or on hot with towels --- I can do that. I guess the only reason I'd use family cloth would be for thriftiness though, which I suppose is how some view cloth diapering?
What do you think?
