Homemade wipes! Paige is almost to her second birthday..I don’t know why I am just discovering this. It’s the biggest money saver I’ve come across, especially with two kids in diapers. Here’s what you need:
2 cups water
2 tbsp. baby soap
1 tbsp. baby oil or olive oil
Paper towel roll
Something to hold the wipes: I saved a Huggies baby wipes container.
I know there are several ways to do this. The first has you cut the paper towel roll in half with a sharp knife. Which kind of paper towel you use is a personal preference thing really. I’ve read good things about the bounty rolls, so that’s what I chose. Once cut in half, remove the careboard center. As you can see…my knife sucks. Mix soap, oil and water in a circular container large enough to hold the entire roll, and seal shut. Place one of the paper towels rolls into the container, and close the lid. Allow it to soak for a few minutes, then flip the container over. Thats it! You have a second roll available whenever you need to make more.
The other way I did personally. I only have a dollar store in my town, and couldn’t find a container that would hold the wipes. So I used an empty baby wipes box. I cut the paper towel roll in half, tore each sheet off one roll and folded them. After about half of the roll, I had a stack that fit perfectly into the wipes box. I mixed together the soap, oil, and water, and poured it over the paper towels in the box. After soaking a few minutes, I flipped it over and let it sit a a few more.
