Using cloth diapers?

We just started using cloth diapers (Bum Genius 3.0). I LOVE them! So easy, especially with full time breastfed babies. Since I have to do the separate wash for those, I decided to stop buying disposable wipes and just make my own out of scrap flannel fabric I had from sewing projects. I just keep two wipe containers on the changing table, one with the wash solution (see below for recipe) and the other just with water. I take the flannel peices and dip them in the wash solution wipe the baby and then put it in the water to soak until the next time I wash the diapers (which happens ever other day). So now I am not paying for wipes anymore, my little one never gets rashes and we have even less garbage to deal with.

Wash Solution:
(I am sure there are many ways this can be done, here is what I do..)

fill the container 1/2 way full with water, add about (I just eye it) 1-2 tablespoons of liquid natural baby wash (I use burts bees kind) and about a teaspoon to a tablespoon of oil (I have used olive oil in the past, right now I am using baby burts bees apricot oil, because I found some I already had) and then add more water until container is about 3/4 full. (this ensures the soap/oil get mixed in a bit, although the oil with rise to the top...) That's it!
