Homemade Baby Wipes

Making your own baby wipes is easy and a great way to save. Frugal DIY for the win!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Unroll paper towels and fold them neatly.
  2. Split the stack into manageable sections and cut in half. Place into a ziploc bag for storage.
  3. Prepare your solution by mixing together:
    – 2 cups distilled water (to prevent mold from growing)
    – 2 TBS oil (baby oil or olive oil)
    – 2 tsp Baby Wash. 
  4. Pour the solution into a large bowl. Dip a manageable section of the wipes into the solution and squeeze out the excess moisture.
  5. Store your wipes in a gallon zipper storage bag until ready to use or in your baby wipe warmer.

Notes

You can adjust the solution to suit your preference. Two tablespoons can be a little sudsy. I used the vanilla oatmeal baby wash this time and the wipes smell so good! You can also add your own therapeutic grade essential oils if you like.

To save a little more, save a distilled water jug or a cleaned milk jug. You can premix the solution and store in the jug for when you’re ready to make more wipes, as pictured to the right.
