Last week, I made a new container of homemade wipes, so I thought I'd put the recipe online. I LOVE these wipes. They are really absorbant and super easy to make. They are also cheap! I probably wouldn't have concidered doing this, but we received the makings for wipes for a gift. I've been making them for almost 2 years now.
1 roll Bounty Select-A-Size paper towels
1 1/2 tablespoons baby bath
1 tablespoon baby oil
2 cups water
Start with 1 roll of Bounty Select-A-Size paper towels. They really need to be Bounty. I use off brand paper towels for general use, but I tried them once as wipes and they fall apart and don't clean baby bottoms nearly as well as Bounty.
Pull the wrapper off and place on a cutting board.
Using a sharp non-serated knife, cut the roll in half.
They will look like this. Keep one and put the other one away for next time.
You need a container to place the wipes in that is big enough to fit the paper towels. The cover also needs to seal well so they don't dry out. I found this one at Target. It's a ClickClack 2.9 quart.
Measure out 1 1/2 tablespoons of baby wash.
Then 1 Tablespoon of baby oil. Add both to the container
Add 2 cups of water to the container.
Place the roll of paper towl in the container. I place the cut side down.
Place the cover on the container and turn the container upside down. Keep it upside down until the paper towels are soaked through.
Open the container. Pull the cardboard center out of the paper towels.
This is how they look! We love them!
