I am a caregiver and I have found the price of adult wipes (like baby wipes) are expensive, so I make my own. I have saved so much money making these. All you need to have is patience and time.
Mix all ingredients and pour over wipes. If the wipes seem dry, make more mix solution as before. I personally go to dollar tree and get baby wash and baby oil.

I make my own babywipes for my grandkids. I use the same ingredients except for the aloe vera. I love the scent and how much money I have saved by making my own. I use them also for clean-ups after meals. Great for cleaning little dirty faces and hands as well...also makes the perfect baby shower gift.
This sounds like a great idea but don't the paper towels get too soaked and shred?

Are these safe to flush into the sewer?
By TW from KY
No. New York City's sewers are clogged with these things and a Minnesota city is suing 6 companies that make 'flushable' wipes that have caused clogged sewers.

If you don't think you'd put it in a septic system then best not to put it into the city mains.
