From the people at Wallypop who think this is such a fabulous idea:
Suuuuuure you just keep on telling yourselves that it doesn't smell like a big nasty wet juicy turd in your whole house. How the fuck are you going to have a bunch of rags piled up with shit all over them, and then try to tell me that's not going to smell? It's just gross period. You have a box of shit covered rags just sitting around. Then you have to carry the shit rags to the washer and drier. Then you have to take them out by hand and put them in your wash. It's just way too much time focused on smelly shit. That's why people use regular toilet paper. Once you flush it, you can just forget the whole thing happened and continue on with your day. With the shit rags, it's a constant reminder of how dirty, smelly, and gross you are.
"Using cloth toilet wipes actually has many advantages. For one, it's a lot more comfortable and soft on your most delicate body parts. It's also more economical, uses less paper, and saves you those late-night trips to the store. And cloth wipes can be used wet without any of the sopping disintegration that regular toilet paper is prone to.

Lately, with all the media attention, there've been a lot of naysayers talking about the stench. I can honestly say, our wipes don't stink. They don't go into a sealed container. They go into a little (lidded) garbage can in the bathroom. Many people use a wet bag, as pictured below. There is no odor.
