So when I was pregnant with my first, a friend asked if I was going to make my own baby wipes. I quickly responded with a “No, probably not.” It seemed unnecessary. Sure, I prefer natural products, which is why she asked, but who has time to make wipes? It wasn’t until recently that I realized making wipes would be really easy. It is better for baby (chemical free ingredients that agree with your baby) and cheaper. The whole process took about ten minutes! It was fun and the wipes smell super good.
- 1/2 roll of strong and soft paper towels
- 2 cups of warm water (to help ingredients mix)
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon Witch Hazel
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon of baby oil
- 2 1/2 Tablespoon of baby wash (I use Honest)
- 1/2 Tbsp 100% Aloe Vera (especially if not in baby oil)
- Baby safe essential oils
Cut paper towels in half using a serrated knife, set aside in air tight container. I used Via because they’re both strong and soft. I normally prefer a paper towel not made with chlorine but, I couldn’t find one strong enough, and a thin towel would disintegrate as you use it…gross! Warm the water and add all ingredients, mix and pour over paper towels. Remove cardboard center and pull center paper towel piece so it’s ready for use. Place lid on and all done! Time to go clean some baby bums 😉

This takes me back to my first dd. I made homemade wipes as well. This was 16 years ago. Mine involved folding individual paper towels into a reusable wipes box. I can’t even remember what the solution was.
Needless to say, once I had dd’s two and three I gave it up. Your way seems quicker and maybe I would have stuck with it if I had known about it.

Fun memories! Folding paper towels sounds like a lot of work. I definitely understand giving up on making everything from scratch, I’m pregnant with my second and I just don’t always have the energy.
