Homemade Supplies

Making homemade is not only easy, it’s fun!  This homemade DIY version costs just pennies, which is much less than store-bought wipes (unless you’re taking advantage of some of our great Amazon deals on baby wipes).   You can save even more by using coupons for the paper towels, but don’t skimp on quality.  If you purchase flimsy paper towels they will disintegrate and not hold up to daily use.  Another idea is to use the liquid solution with fabric (such as a soft old t-shirt cut into squares) for baby wipes that can be used over and over again.

Another tip:  I adhered the instructions on how to make homemade baby wipes to the front of the container so it would be easy to find when I made them again.  These aren’t just for babies, either.  They are great to keep in the car for wiping messy hands on-the-go.

Homemade Baby Wipes
1 roll of Bounty (or another thick, quality brand) paper towels
2-1/4 cups of water
2 Tbsp. baby bath or shampoo
1 Tbsp. baby oil

Cut the roll of paper towels in half (an electric knife works well) and place in a container (a large plastic coffee can or a Rubbermaid container works well).  Mix all liquid ingredients together and pour over top of the towels.  When ready to use, remove the cardboard center and pull the paper towels up from the middle.  There you go:  Homemade baby wipes, fast, inexpensive and easy!
