I decided to make baby wipes after reading about this. So I searched Pinterest for homemade baby wipes and found two problems: 1. Most recipes include Johnson & Johnson shampoo and baby oil, which has crazy stuff in it that I can’t pronounce. 2. Natural recipes include expensive ingredients that wouldn’t really save me money on baby wipes. Finally I came across a YouTube that was natural and affordable.
What you need:
-Roll of paper towels (bounty works best)
-round plastic container
-2 cups of purified or distilled water
-1 or 2 tablespoons coconut oil
-a squirt of natural baby shampoo
-optional: lavender oil and/or tea tree oil
First cut the paper towels in half. It’s kinda a pain in the buns, but using a serrated knife helps.
Next add coconut oil to warm water, then shampoo, then oils
Next place the paper towels in the container (fuzzy part facing down) and pour in water
Then put the lid on and make sure it’s on secure and won’t leak.
Next flip it over and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Finally remove the cardboard from the middle and pull out the wipe from the middle.
And you’re done!
Make sure that you use distilled or purified water or the wipes will mold!
