I've never done this, but it looks really easy and definitely more cost effective than buying wipes. I found this on Pinterest yesterday: Homemade Baby / Makeup Remover / Cleaning Wipes! | One Good Thing by Jillee (It was actually titled homemade make up remover wipes) If you scroll down it has the recipe for baby wipes: distilled water, coconut oil and a little bit of baby wash!!!
Has anyone ever made their own before? I may try this because I know coconut oil is so good for us. I'm only concerned about the baby wash setting on the skin, but then again other wipes are filled with other chemicals that set on the skin. Maybe it won't be bad as long as it's an organic wash which we use.
Thank you Vicki... for my siggy!!
We CD so we use cloth wipes too, but the real cloth kind.. they can actually be cut and sewed out of receiving blankets and they work ah-mazing. Wouldn't have it any other way! For fluid you can just use regular water, or there are many different variations of soaps. For a while we were using soap nuts which were really cool and yummy smelling, too like these: Plain Goats Milk Wipe Wash Cubes by sistersluvcrafts on Etsy those weren't the ones we used, just an example because I can't remember which we used.
I preferred it that way, because you melt them in water, and spray the wipe with the water before changing. I don't like the idea of wipes/cloth sitting in liquid for days at a time.
I use cloth wipes (because we use cloth dipes), but I usually buy a wipes solution concentrate that is all natural (I fill up a wipes warmer with water and some solution and dip the cloth wipe in it). I would add tea tree oil to the solution because it keeps yeast away
