Baby Wipes

When my friend Michelle came up for her visit, she brought along her own homemade baby wipes. I was so intrigued...who knew you could make your own!? She told me how she did it, but I didn't write it down...so I just googled it and found some recipes. (Michelle...you'll have to tell me if this is similar to what you do...)

You will need:

* 10 cup air-tight container (eg. cylinder rubbermaid, w/lid)
* Bounty paper towels
* 2 Tbsp. of baby oil
* 2 Tbsp. of baby bath (your favorite)
* 2 cups of water

Cut a roll of paper towel in half, remove center cardboard, mix liquid ingredients, pour on top of paper towels (that are already in your container), pull first towel up.
Let them sit for about 1 hour so all the liquid has enough time to absorb the entire 1/2 roll. You may ask, why Bounty towels?? Well it seems that Bounty expands when wet and the others seem to shrivel up. Remember do not shake the liquid, it will foam up. Each roll of towels makes 2 containers of wipes, which lasts approx. 3 weeks.

I am sure this will save us all a load of money, and it can be argued that this is way healthier for your baby because of chemicals found in regular wipes. You can also find it helpful if your baby reacts to certain scents, by using your favorite brand of goats milk baby bath (that's what we use here) or other organic products. This would also make a great baby gift for a friend...buy the container and towels and include the recipe (this is how Michelle got into it).
Let me know if you try it!?
