I will be honest I haven’t really made homemade baby wipes a lot. When we had kids in diapers we used a baby wipe container and just put some wet rags in there with a wipey warmer. Since I used cloth diapers I just threw them in with the cloth diapers and washed them.
One way people use homemade baby wipe solution is to put the solution in the wipe container and then just dip the wipes in the solution. This keeps the wipes from smelling musty if you don’t use them fast enough.
- You can also put your homemade baby wipe solution in a spray bottle and just spray their bottom before wiping.
- If you travel a lot then just put a few wipes in a baby wipe travel case or a plastic ziptop bag and you have them ready to go!
- Make sure to always keep your container closed tightly so the baby wipes don’t dry out.
- Don’t forget if you aren’t use a baby wipe warmer you can always decorate the outside of your container to match your nursery!
Homemade Baby Wipes
1 1/2 cups water
2 Tbsp. baby bath or shampoo
1 Tbsp. baby oil
1 roll paper towels
Mix the water, baby bath and baby oil in an empty round baby wipe container. Cut the paper towels in half using an electric knife. Remove core from the center. Place paper towels in wipe container. Let the paper towels soak up the water solution. Turn every few minutes to allow the solution to reach the middle of the paper towels. If there is still a dry spot in the middle, add a little more water and turn until soaked through. Pull the wipes from the middle of the roll through the top of the wipe container.
*An even cheaper way to make homemade baby wipes is to use wash cloths and wash with your cloth diapers.
