Making your own baby wipes at home is easy at 1, 2, 3. The basic recipe is simple and effective, and it can not only save you money but also give you assurance you know exactly what’s touching baby’s delicate skin. Once you master the basic recipe, you can add a few drops of essential oils if your baby’s skin can tolerate them.
Original Recipe for Wipes
1/8 to 1/4 cup baby shampoo
1/8 to 1/4 cup baby oil/olive oil
2 cups lukewarm water
Mix liquid ingredients gently. Place the wipes in the container, then add the solution and invert a few times to make sure the wipes all get sufficiently moistened. Use just enough solution to moisten. Extra solution can generally be kept refrigerated.
For the wipes, cut a roll of premium paper towels in half across the middle. Thread one end of the wipes through the cardboard roll and they’ll dispense easily.
