Being an Environmental Friendly Mama: Homemade Baby Wipes

I think most of you would agree that buying the needs and wants of our babies is really very costly. For me, as much as possible, I am finding ways to at least able to save my budget from buying diapers and baby wipes (I fine these 2 neccesities very expensive). Currently, I am using cloth diapers for Dirk but not most of the time because i only have 2 pcs of it. Not only I was able to save my money, but as well, I am able to contribute a good impact on the environment because I was able to lessen the waste in our environment.

Speaking about ways in saving money, I got this homemade baby wipes recipe  from an auction in Listia. Listia is an online auction site where in you do not need money or cash in order to have items that you want, but instead, you only need to use credits. Need not to worry beacuse the sign-up is for free.

So for those parents who love to make products for their babies and would like to save a lot of money just to buy baby wipes, hope you will find this recipe very helpful.

You need to prepare:
• Round plastic container (Rubbermaid #6 or #9 works well)
• Thick, strong roll of white paper towels
• Sharp knife to cut paper towel roll in half
• 2 cups water that has been boiled and cooled to room temperature
• 2 Tablespoons baby shampoo or baby wash
• 1 Tablespoon baby oil


♥ Here are the Simple Steps:
• Open container and 'start' the roll by pulling a towel from the inside of the roll.
• Cut the roll of paper towels in half with a knife and remove the inner cardboard core.
• Mix liquid ingredients in container.
• Place the paper towels in the container with the cut side facing downward.
• Secure lid tightly and allow to sit until all liquid is absorbed into the paper towels.
• Turn the container upside-down and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
• Open container and 'start' the roll by pulling a towel from the inside of the roll.
• Wipes are now ready to use.

♥ Some Helpful Tips:

♦ These also make a great gift for new parents. You can decorate or personalize the container and, of course, be sure to include a copy of the recipe.
♦ Save the other half of the roll for use next time you make wipes.
♦ Make sure the container is closed tightly after each use to prevent drying out.
♦ When your baby is older and his skin is less sensitive, you can add about a teaspoon of rubbing alcohol to the mix.

Most importantly, we need to maintain proper storage to ensure the hygiene & safety of the wipes that we will use for our kids.
