Ingredients for homemade baby wipes.
(Per my awesome BFF: Brooke.)
1 roll of select a size paper towels, cut in half (Bounty works great.)
1 canister with a lid (One with a seal is best to keep the moisture in.)
2 cups water
2 tbs baby soap/wash
1 tbs Olive Oil or Baby Oil
2-3 drops Tea Tree Oil or other scented essential oil of your choice
*Mix it all together. Then pour it over the paper towels, let it soak for a while, pull out the cardboard center and start using the wipes from the center of the roll.
I used this while the twins were still in diapers and I loved them. I did try cheaper paper towels but with poor results. For me it was less about saving lots of money (because I don't think you really will) but more about using less wipes. I could use 1 or 2 half towels to a dozen of those cheap tiny wipes. I never once had a roll dry out either. The stuff in the boxes or resealable bags dried out all.the.time.
*I keep some of these still in my purse in a Ziploc baggy and use them for everything from sticky hands to car spills.
Or even eating out and you can't leave the table because you have kids to wrestle... I can wash my hands without worrying the kids will run off to eat the dessert on the neighboring table.
(Never happened... more than once.) ;)
