I’m a stay at home mom so I try to save money any way I can, and homemade wipes is just one of those ways. One case of 648 count of wipes cost around twelve dollars, I can make 1,692 wipes for almost the same amount of money. Thats twice as much for two extra dollars (give or take taxes). You will need bounty paper towels, one tablespoon of baby oil, one tablespoon of baby cream or lotion (there is also baby cream oil that you can use two tablespoons of instead of using one tablespoon of cream/lotion and oil), one tablespoon of baby soap, a cup and half of water, mixing bowl, whisk, and electric or serrated bread knife. First of you need your paper towels and electric knife, I prefer bounty but keep in mind if you change the brand of paper towels you have to change the recipe to compensate (such as more or less water, less or more soap etc.) using the electric knife makes the cuts cleaner and easier than a regular bread knife, you cut the paper towel into thirds and take out the cardboard roll in the middle. Depending on what container you’re going to keep the wipes in you should either leave it as is and put it into a circular container or fold them evenly into a stack to put inside your wipe container. I use a wipe warmer and a refillable wipe container for on the go and they fit in both of them perfectly if folded properly. After you cut and fold you are ready to start mixing the ingredients. Add a cup and a half of water into the mixing bowl, put your tablespoon of baby oil, cream/lotion, and soap. Whisk all the ingredients together and then lay down your paper towels inside the bowl. You will have to squeeze the water out and mop it up on each side until you’re convinced it is thoroughly soaked through. You are now ready to put your homemade wipes in your container or wipe holder and it’s ready to use!
