DIY Baby Wipe Solution
Being a cloth diapering mommy, I love to cut down on waste. I wanted to try my hand at cloth wipes as well, but decided to limit that to diapers featuring only urine. I was toooootally comfortable going all in with disposable wipes for good ole' poop as I had no interest on washing those bits of cloth knowing what comes out of those two beasts on a daily basis.
I had my collection of glass bottles due to my obsession with essential oils and now needed a recipe that was all natural and would clean my two boy tushies in a snap. Thankfully, I found loads of recipes to meet my needs, and one even featured everything I already had at home...YES!
With only 5 ingredients, this wipe solution was made in minutes.
I first mixed the oils and soap, then added them to the water before transferring into my spray bottle.
Once this sweet smelling solution was mixed, I filled up my 4 oz spray bottle (I tried using a bigger bottle but the boys just wanted to play with it and ended up dropping in on the other's head...so I downsized) and had a whole second batch to throw in the diaper bag or just keep on hand as we go through a lot.
Instead of going out to buy cloth wipes, recycle an old cotton t-shirt by cutting it into squares and there you go! After each use, I place them in a garment bag so they don't get lost in the daily laundry load. Then I shove them back into the bag I use to store them (a shoe travel bag is more than enough space and can easily fit into whatever you use for a changing station) and I am ready to go at all times!
