Thinking about making your own baby wipes? Then do it!
It is easy, cheap, and wonderful for baby's behind.
Besides, if you are using cloth diapers, it just makes sense. You can sew your own wipes, or just cut up some old t-shirts into squares--any natural fabric, like cotton or muslin will work well. If you prefer, you can also use paper towels with this solution, but I find they don't do as good of a job cleaning up poopies as cloth does.
Most of the ingredients can be easily obtained from pharmacies, grocery, department, or online stores. Some ingredients are easily made at home as well:
- Grow your own Aloe plants for the Aloe juice.
- Make your own Calendula and Witch Hazel extracts (tutorial here).
I have found that this wipes solution, in combination with plenty of "naked time," is a great preventer of diaper rash. Please comment if you have any questions!
