Apple II floppy substitute

I know the Apple II series used something like 140k single sided floppies.

What is a compatible substitute? Double Sided Double Density? I would
assume side count doesn't matter and in fact DS might be be preferable as
then I can just notch the other side and safely flip the disk.

But what about density? I know in 3.5 disks, you can't safely interchange
DD and HD disks and expect them to work for long. But what about with
5.25 disks? Can I use DD or even HD disks with an Apple II?

Again this is so I make sure I keep a healthy supply of floppies when I
am done cleaning house (I have a case of 5.25 disks also to get rid of,
and they are a mix of DSDD and DSHD).
