Making Homemade Baby Wipes

To make reasonably priced baby wipes you will need the following items:

Directions:

Cut the paper towel in half and and remove the inner cardboard. Mix your liquid ingredients in container and place one of the paper towel halves inside, cut side down (save the other half for the next time you need to make wipes). Put the lid of the container on tightly and let it sit until all the liquid is absorbed. Next, turn the container upside down and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Then turn it right side up, open your container, and "start" your roll by pulling a towel from the center of the roll. These are much cheaper to make than to buy. They would be handy to keep in your car for dirty hands as well.

I have been making this for over a year now and they are just as good as the name brand wipes. I read that they would "spoil" if you made the wipes up ahead, but I have had a container in the truck for over 6 months and they have yet to spoil even in the summer time.

And you can't get out for more? My son is 13 but has Cerebral palsy so wears "adult pull-ups." I go through A LOT of pull-ups during a winter storm where I couldn't get out.

You can just buy the baby wipes. This is a recipe I had when I had my twins. I used bounty paper towels, baby oil about a 1/2 cup, water 2 cups. You can add more, just a very drop of baby shampoo mix. I used the tub the baby wipes came in but you can also just used Ziploc freezer bag. Just pour the solution over the paper towels.

I used to make these same baby wipes, when my children were "littles." I've even used this solution on cloth wipes, too.

I do have to disagree, however, about using this as disposable adult wipes. From first hand experience, something much softer with different emollients is important. After all of my personal experience, I do not use a disposable for this, unless I buy a professional brand.

I'm looking for a better "adult solution" to use on flannel cloths. I don't sew them anymore because when simply cut with pinking shears, there is no sweat equity if thrown away. Some just need to be thrown away.

I purchases some off-brand of baby wipes before my son was born. I used them the first few days at home with him, but his bottom turned red from irritation.

Considering the number of medications that are administered via the skin, I became alarmed at the number of chemicals in baby products.

Not edible, but still a good recipe to use, especially with those that have babies with sensitive skin or allergies.

Save tons of money by making your own baby wipes. It's much easier than you might think. I use only the Bounty paper towels because they hold up better.

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

Instead of buying baby wipes at the store, I make mine homemade. All it costs is a roll of double quilted bounty paper towels and baby soap and baby oil which you already have for the baby.
