Welcome to the board!
We use washable wipes all of the time. To start with I bought a pack from easypeasy, terry flannel and fleece backed. I found I much preferred the flannel side. Now that the cleaning up jobs are getting a bit bigger I just went out and bought a cheap pack of face cloths and they are working out fine. Maybe a little bit bigger than I'd like but it means I'm only using one per change.
(I guess it doesn't really matter because we aren't living there now but DH is from a little village in Suffolk, just outside of Cambridge. All of the in-laws are still there, a very pretty part of the country. Whereabouts are you?)
