Homemade Baby Wipes
1 Roll of Paper Towels – cut in half horizontally
2 1/2 Cups of Water
2 Tablespoons of Baby Wash
1 Tablespoon Baby Oil
1 plastic container large enough to hold half the paper towels (with lid)
Remove the cardboard center from the paper towels. Place 1/2 of the liquid ingredients into the container. Put the lid on and shake. Place 1/2 of the paper towels in the container, put the lid back on and shake some more. Put the lid on and shake for a minute or two. Let it sit for 15 minutes. When your ready to use the wipes, just pull from the center of the roll.
I saw this recipe on 2 Wired 2 Tired, a blog that I follow and decided I had to try it. It was easy to make and is a lot less expensive than buying Pampers wipes.
I have been using these wipes for about a week now and I really like them. I love the way they smell and they are so soft. I feel like they clean better than regular baby wipes too. I put them into a ziploc bag until I went to the store and purchased a plastic container. I am going to mix up the liquid and put it in a spray bottle too for use with cloth wipes since I use cloth diapers a lot at home.
