Homemade Diaper Wipes January 28, 2008

For anyone who was interested (Elizabeth?):

Cut a roll of paper towel in half.  Remove the paper roll from inside so you’ll then be able to pull out the ‘wipes’ from the inside of the roll.

Place wipes in a container.

Mix together the following:

2 c. water; 2 tbsp. baby bath; 1 tbsp. baby oil; 1 tbsp. tea tree oil (optional)

Pour over top of the paper towels.  Voila!  Depending on the size of paper towel roll you use, you may want to cut back on the water.  Consider buying recycled paper towel and/or select a size so you can have smaller wipes when you just want to clean up after a little pee. 

* Since we are doing cloth diapering I thought it would be easier to do cloth wipes.  So, instead of paper towel I filled my container with those tiny baby wash cloths and poured the mixture over top of them.  That way everything can just go into the dipe bucket and into the wash together.  Easier for us so we don’t have to have a garbage can in the nursery too.

    Cool, what is “baby bath”? We use clothes when we are at home, so I want to try this out. Thanks Jen!

    Baby bath is just whatever you wash your baby’s body with. 🙂
