I would love to switch from paper napkins to cloth for my family of 2 adults + 3 messy kids. I don't mind doing laundry but I hate ironing. Help?

I hate the waste of paper napkins so am considering switching to cloth ones. Laundry is not an issue, but ironing is, and I hate the look of wrinkled napkins. Do you have any recommendations for wrinkle-free napkins?
I've seen recommendations to whip the napkins out of the dryer immediately - but I doubt I'll be able to do that consistently. Reviews seem to indicate that the polyester ones don't wrinkle, but they don't absorb, either, which does me no good. One review I saw mentioned that he prefers waffle-weave napkins, which sounds promising, but the very few I've found online had no reviews. Does anyone have any experience with these and where I can buy them?
Any suggestions welcome - thx so much.
