My favorite are the Grovia ones. I have Bumkins fleece wipes too, but I usually use those to dry off her bum or have her blow her nose on. My favorites are still the Grovia. They clean the worst messes in just a swipe and aren't so thin that you feel like you are getting up close and personal to the poo.
I have 3 dozen large GMD velour/terry wipes and a dozen small GMD flannel/terry 2-sided wipes. I just use a spray bottle of water on her bum when needed, but the wipes are more often now used to dab her off after using the potty or getting washed down at the sink than anything. They were heavily used when she was EBF for sure. I feel like wipes are wipes, as long as they hold up to heavy washing for a long time they will be fine. They all work better than disposable wipes. Except the poly fleece ones, they just don't absorb, I have one like that (a freebie from some order) and it is useless as a wipe IMO.
I have Thirsties and WAHM wipes. I like them both for different reasons. The CV layer on the Thirsties is my favorite for cleaning up poop messes and then I use a regular flannel one to go over it once more. I have about 40 and just ordered some more.
I just ordered some soap bits to make solution with but so far have just been using water.
we have planetwise, WAHM brand and bungenius wipes. The planetwise are alright, they are single layer and fairly absorbant. They are kind of scratchy because ive put them in the dryer. The WAHM brand is single layer and is very thin, you can see through them they are so thin. THey actually work pretty well and they've stayed soft even through the dryer. The bumgenius....my least fave. They took FOREVER to stop repelling. They actually repelled so bad that when i sprayed them with water the water would spill right off onto the floor and the wipe would be totally dry. I had to wash them about 25 times before they stopped repelling enough to even use. I just kept throwing them in with my diaper wash without ever using them they were so bad. They also got a bit scratchy from the dryer.
I liked not drying them better before but i ran out of space to hang dry and i stopped using the wet method when we were getting mold. they do stay softer if you dont dry them

So far we are using washcloths as wipes and our diaper service provided us with some of the Bumkins ones. I also have a bunch of cut up old Tshirts to use when we are out because they can just be thrown away and gives the Tshirt material one more useful life.
