In the new year, it has been my goal to switch our house over to a more greener, healthier, and happier lifestyle. We’ve been making changes from our toiletries to our “medicines” to our food and even every day products like baby wipes. I will go into detail in a later post at what jump started my quest for this but today I want to share with you a super simple and totally amazing recipe on how to make homemade baby wipes.  You will not only save money by making baby wipes yourself, but you will also know exactly what’s going into the wipes that touch your babies sensitive and totally kissable skin.



Paper towel roll {we use Kirkland brand paper towels but also the Bounty select a size rolls are great as well}
Purified or distilled water
All natural baby wash {I use Basic H}
Essential oil {I use doTerra Lavender essential oil}
Container to put wipes in {I use a Rubbermaid sealable tub and you can also use quart size freezer bags for wipes on the go}


Step 1: First you want to take your paper towel roll and using a sharp knife cut your paper towel roll in half.








Step 2: Next, fill you container with about 2 1/4 cups purified or distilled water {using this type of water will help reduce any chances of mold forming on your wipes…I know it sounds scary but mold likes moist, dark places, and since there are not any chemicals on these wipes to preserve the materials on the wipes, mold can form if you use regular ol’ water.}


Step 3: Add in 1/2 teaspoon of your all natural baby wash. Now since I am using Basic H Organic cleaning concentrate, the formula really is super concentrated so it takes very little to go a long ways. If you are using a ready made wash, you may want to use 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon of baby wash per 2 1/4 cups water.


Step 4: Add in 1-2 drops of essential oils


Step 5: Place your half roll of paper towels {cut side down} into your solution in the container. Place the lid on your container and make sure it is fastened tightly. Turn your container upside down and let the solution soak through all of your paper towels. This takes about 5 minutes or so.




Tip: Don’t remove the cardboard center of your paper towel roll before placing it into your container, do this after and it will be much easier to remove because it will be wet.




Our homemade baby wipes last about 2 weeks before I need to make new ones and this includes me using them for both at home and on to go. When on the go, I take out a good amount of wipes from my container and put them into a quart sized zip lock bag and throw into the diaper bag.


The wipes smell so good with the lavender essential oils added in and I love that I know exactly what is touching my little guy’s skin. Everyone that uses the wipes always comments on how good they smell too, which is a major plus when you have to clean a poopy diaper. You know what I’m talking about mama!





Will you make your own homemade baby wipes?


Are you excited to save money and use safer products on your baby’s sensitive skin?
