Baby wipes can be expensive and can easily become one of those, “On no! I forgot to pick up wipes, today!” types of catastrophes that often plague so many of us in the wee hours of the night. I have been there too often!
Reusable wipes are perfect for easy spills, diaper changes at home, or to bring with you while you’re out. You can use them to even wipe down your toys, and to clean up your children after each meal. I know that I might not use them for the “messy” diapers, but I enjoy reusing these wipes for all other kid-related multi-purpose uses.
Here’s how I make mine:
Homemade Reusable Baby Wipes
- 2-3 receiving blanket or flannel
- 2 cups of water
- 1/2 cup of baby oil
- 1/2 cup of baby wash
Take the receiving blankets and cut them it into squares. Fold and put neatly in a baby wipe tub (or another airtight tub).
Mix together the water, baby oil and baby wash. Pour over the baby wipes.
You could create a more natural solution for the baby wipes by mixing essential oils, lanolin, or aloe with the water. I would have done this but chose to instead just use the items that I already had on hand.
