 ... what is your homemade wipes solution?  Or do you buy it, what do you use?

I take a gallon jug of purified water, remove about a cup, and add about 1/4 cup of baby oil and baby shampoo plus 2-3 drops of tea tree oil.

Well, I use my wipes warmer. I fill it about 3/4 full of water, then add a squirt of baby wash and about 1/2 cup of witch hazel. (Measurements aren't exact, just wing it!) The witch hazel is an astringent and since I started adding it my daughter's little bum doesn't even get red anymore. The baby wash I use is the vapor bath so it has the soothing effect of the menthol. HTH!

I have some awesome soap bits from an etsy shop, but I generally just use water.  I fill the wipes container with wipes and tap water at least once a day.  When it was just my daughter in diapers we used some fancier wipes recipes, but baby boy poops every other diaper and I just gol lazy, lol.

It varies depending on my mood. Usually I use a squirt of ABC wash with a couple of drops of melaleuca. Sometimes I'll add eucalyptus as well. He has several washes, though, and sometimes I like to mix and match for different scents and whatnot.

I found a recipe online...don't remember where, though.  I use 2 cups of distilled water, 1/8-1/4 cup of baby oil, and an 1/8-1/4 cup of baby shampoo (usually the lavendar kind).  I loooove the way it smells!
