Quoting Fairy [God] Mother ®:" New to the group! I was around for the last one but still haven't had my baby and was still deciding ... [snip!] ... questions! What's your favorite pocket diaper? What's your favorite cloth wipe? What detergent do you use? Thanks ladies!"
I've only tried BumGenius, FuzziBunz and Alva pockets. So far, I'm meh on all of them. The fuzzibunz are a little too big, so they leak and I haven't gotten a chance to really use them. But I don't much like the material used on the inside. I like the BumGenius, but they weren't worth the price. I guess the Alva's are my favorite pocket. I don't really have any complaints, they just aren't totally awesome and they're a little bulky(but what do you expect with a OS?)
I haven't tried cloth wipes yet, but I'm making my own wipes as we speak. I'm just sewing old flannel receiving blankets together(I also use them as flats, AWESOME) but I've heard wash cloths work great.
I have no advice on detergent, because I'm a loser. Long story short, I use my mom's washer and she wouldn't allow me to use it unless I used the detergent she uses, which is Tide Free&Clear. I haven't had any leaks, but these smurfers smell so it's time to strip and order real CD detergent. I'm waiting until Black Friday though, because I'm sure there will be all sorts of online sales and I want more covers.
