My aunt told me about this recipe and a friend recently told me her family has also used a similar recipe.
In a plastic container combine:
2 tablespoons of baby wash
1 tablespoon of baby oil
2 cups of water
Using a knife, cut a roll of paper towels in half. (I have yet to make a nice looking cut!)
Place paper towels in the plastic container, place lid on, and flip upside down.
The liquid will soak the paper towels.
Flip back over and pull cardboard tube out. Pull wipes up from the middle.
A 3 pack of generic wipes (240 wipes) is $4.88.
Cost for these wipes (makes about 200) was $1.77.
(I use thick Brawny paper towels for wipes and already had baby wash and baby oil on hand.)
Cost per wipe is less than 1 cent. :)

I use a very similar recipe! I posted mine on my blog a few months ago! Check it out! We must be kindred spirits?! Follow my blog...?ReplyDelete
The thought of making my own baby wipes has somehow never even crossed my mind! Brilliant!ReplyDelete
Awesome! We are definitely making these... we tried the Target brand wipes but I don't like how flimsy they are... Brawny would be perfect!ReplyDelete

This looks amazing! I'm not due for a few months. So i am wondering if anyone knows how long these store for? Thanks!ReplyDelete
These work best when your baby is little and you're going through wipes quickly. There are no preservatives and a lot of moisture which means they will mold. However, they'll easily go a week without getting yucky. At least, that is my experience. They're so easy to make. Just have the ingredients on hand and make them when you come home with baby. My recipe is a bit different in that you microwave it all together before putting in the paper towels. Not sure how that changes it, but it's how I do mine. Good luck!Delete
Are home made wipe solutions are reliable? If yes, how they are made?ReplyDelete
