    Maybe I have posted this before. The search function is really hit and miss on this site (as is category selection - I couldn't get the "gear" category to work at all). Anyway, here it is: I find that baby wash cloths are just the right size, texture, and absorbance for shotgun cleaning rags. Seems my daughter's friends dumped a thousand of them on us when Parker was born last spring. I have appropriated many that were slightly frayed. Look for them in the baby section at box stores. They're pretty cheap and reusable.

      I wear nothing but 100% cotton tee shirts. When they begin to show wear and stains, I cut them up in "usable" size patches, cloths, etc.
      Excellent cleaning patches and the cotton soaks up plenty of solvent, lube, linseed oil. Works especially well cleaning off excess after a cleaning job.

        OHH - When you say reusable, I hope its not going from the babies bottom to the bore of a shotgun.

        I do the old t-shirt and sock trick myself for cleaning my shotguns. I buy patches that fit on the jag for rifles or pistols.
