Homemade Baby Wipes

Whew! Have you about recovered from all the Christmas excitement? It has been a busy but enjoyable time with so many memories now tucked into our hearts once again!
Today I decided to share a 'different' recipe with you. I figured since pretty much everyone ate so much good food at Christmastime and possibly gained those few extra pounds that today would be a great day to share a recipe that isn't food related and actually saves money for you in the long run!
It's not exactly a "Tasty" recipe but... :) 



These Homemade Baby Wipes are so simple to make and I like them so much better then the ones you can buy!
  1. They are cheaper
  2. They don't require you to run to the store if you run out of wipes, (unless of course you are out of paper towel as well lol )
  3. They are more 'wet' and clean that stinky mess so much easier and faster
  4. They are soo SIMPLE to make and in a matter of 15 minutes you have another whole pack of wipes 
Anyways I'll quit bragging on them now and just give you the instructions on how to make them.

You'll need:

1 roll Bounty Paper Towels cut in half with a sharp knife (others work too I just like these cause the pieces are the perfect size)
2 Tbls Aveeno Baby Wash & Shampoo Natural Oat Extract  (I have a different brand shown in the picture but have since switched to this brand as the other was making my daughters skin so dry)
1 Tbls Johnson Baby Oil for Kids
2 c. warm tap water

Instructions:

Mix water, oil and soap together.
Pull the cardboard center out of the roll of paper towel.
Put the roll of Paper Towels into the container of your choice and pour the water mixture over the towels. Put the lid on and turn the container upside down for 5 minutes.
Flip around and they are ready to use.

Depending on the size of your rolls of paper towels 2 cups of water seems to be a little too much so i usually just pour off the excess.


Blessings on the New Year!

  1. Great idea! Even though we don't have little ones anymore, we still use baby wipes. Especially in the car for washing hands on the go!
