Today, one of my readers asked me what kind of paper towels I used for making baby wipes. She had made them and thought they were thin. The first batch I made were thin too. I used Scotts select-a-size when I made my first batch of wipes and they were too thin and small. I used them until they were gone, but they were not very effective. The best towels I have found for making wipes are Bounty (not select-a-size). I buy them in large bulk packages. You can get good deals when they are on sale and use coupons.
Also, you will need a tall round or square container that will hold a roll of paper towels that has been cut in half. I use a large serrated knife (reserved for only cutting paper towels) to cut the roll in half. I use scissors to remove the cardboard in the center of the roll. I have forgotten to remove the cardboard center a few times. It slips right out when it is wet from the homemade wipes solution. I have two canisters and can make two rolls at a time so that I can have wipes in more than one room of the house and so that I never run out. The canisters that I use were around $6 each at Wal-mart. They are the Better Homes and Garden brand.
