Homemade Baby Wipes for $0.60 a Roll!

Thursday, April 1, 2010

I've had friends tell me about this homemade tip before, but I'd never done it. And now, I don't know why I hadn't! Making homemade baby wipes really was easy.

What you need:
Quality paper towel roll (Bounty, etc.)
Baby Wash
Round appropriate size container with lid
*I chose to invest in the well-designed 2.9 qt Michael Graves container from Target. Well worth the $12, and the cost will be recuped in just a few batches!!

Cut paper towel roll in half with a sharp knife... or, next time, I'll cut it in half with the miter saw... it would've been easier, quicker, and a cleaner cut!

Place half of paper towel roll in round storage container.

In separate bowl or container, mix 2 C water and 2 Tbsp baby wash. (Since you pick your own baby wash, you could use an organic or all natural substitution here to suit your needs.)

Pour liquid mixture over paper towel roll in round container and let soak about 5 minutes.

Return and pull the cardboard core out after soaked. This should also pull up the middle towel as you pull it out. This is your pull point for pulling out baby wipes! Done!

*There are some tips that recommend using a container with a soft lid allowing you to cut an 'X' slit in the top to pull the towels through, but this can also cause your wipes to dry out quicker inside, so I went with a quality, well-designed, easy-to-use lid!

Wow! Super easy and I bet it's cheap. I know at the hospital they always use what reminds me of napkin and they told me when Lydia was born to put water and baby soap on it to clean her. So yet another great idea!
