Homemade Baby Wipes

Try this if you find that you're close to running out of baby wipes and won't have enough to last until payday.

Using the empty wipe container, put in a small amount of warm water in the bottom, about 1/2 inch, add a few drops of baby oil, and a few drops of mild baby bath wash. Now, take enough paper towels to fill container and cut each one in half, then put them into the water, oil, bath wash solution. Now flip the stack over to be sure they all get saturated. Whaa-la! You have instant baby wipes. The bath wash cleanses the skin, the oil moisturizes and seals the skin. Use a dry paper towel or wash cloth to pat skin dry before diapering baby. I recommend using the better quality paper towels. The ones that feel more like material, because they're softer and don't fall apart so easily. Also, use the products that you normally use on baby, so you know they won't be allergic. I used these on my three children, now grown, when money was tight and found they worked better then the store bought ones.

Viva is the best kind of paper towel to use. (It's the thickest) Also try to get the select a size so you don't have to take the time cutting in half. Oh and one more thing. Make sure you boil the water to steralize it. I didn't and ended up with some mold. (02/16/2007)
