Homemade Wipes

I've been making my own baby wipes for about 5 months now (thanks to my cousin, Katie, for tellin me about it!) and I LOVE it! Not only do I use them for diaper changes, but also to wipe her off before bed if I don't get around to a bath or even as a nice, soft tissue for my delicate nose. I don't know why I didn't do this sooner! It really comes out to be A LOT cheaper than store-bought and I like that I know exactly what's in them. Here's how I make them:

I found a 2-pack of MainStay brand plastic containers at Walmart for about $3 to store them in (any air-tight container will work).

1. Cut a paper towel (no cheap ones - I like Viva and Brawny) roll in half with knife or tool of your choice

2. Mix 1 1/2 cups of water with 2 Tblsp baby wash and 1 Tblsp baby oil

3. Pour solution over paper towels

4. Let solution soak through (might want to flip container upsidedown for a few minutes)

5. Pull out cardboard piece from middle, pull wipes from middle and presto!
