What You Will Need

- 1T vinegar
- 2T baby lotion
- 2 T baby wash
Home Made Baby Wipe Directions
First, you want to take a paper towel roll and cut it in half so it is like you have two short rolls. The best paper towel type is the choose your size which consists of smaller sheets that you can have longer or shorter and is the ideal size for wipes.
After you have the two halves of the paper towel roll, take your container, preferably an old coffee container, and place the rolls in it.
Second, boil the two cups of water then remove. Immediately add the vinegar, baby lotion, baby wash and mix together until dissolved. Once dissolved pour over the paper towels in the container and let them soak. (You will have 1 cup of solution for each container and paper towel roll.)
Once the roll is cool enough to touch, remove the cardboard center. To pull wipes, pull from the center of the roll, they will keep coming perfectly! The wipes will also stay moist if you prefer to use a wipe warmer. You may have to use a few more wipes for a dirty diaper, but it is still cheaper than continually buying wipes!
