Make Your Own Natural Baby Wipes!

Every mom understands the value of wipes in the diaper department.  They are an absolute necessity!  Whether you use cloth diapers or disposables, you need them.  But who likes to pay for them?

I have a wonderful recipe for a natural baby wipe solution that will save  you money and be better for your baby’s little bum.  I have used it with both of my kids and it is wonderful.  It is easy to make and store and it has a pleasant scent to wipes

I make it by the gallon and keep it stored in a closet so that I always have some ready when needed.  You can make it two cups at a time, but I have found that I save a lot of time by doing it by the gallon.  Don’t forget to label your jug!  My husband has almost mistaken the wipe solution for water.  :)

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 gallon water

24 drops tea tree essential oil

24 drops lavender essential oil

4 tsp Dr. Bronner’s Castile Liquid Soap (Baby Mild)

Add all of the ingredients together in the gallon of water and shake.  Pour over either folded baby washcloths or over soft paper towels that have been folded.  Store in a square plastic container or an empty wipe container.

Voila!  Your own homemade, natural baby wipes.  Enjoy!

*While the essential oils might seem pricey to buy for wipe solution, they will easily last you a long time!  I think the first bottles I bought to use with my daughter lasted about two years.

    Thanks for posting this! I was actually thinking a few days ago about how I needed to start making my own. Do you save the solution once it’s made to use on more refills, or do you dump it each time? I didn’t know if it would stay good or not. I think I am going to make some, since I have the oils and just need to get the baby castile soap. Thanks!

    I save the solution in a gallon water jug to use for refills. I have found that if I make too many wipes at a time and don’t go through them fast enough, they get moldy and I have to throw them away (or wash if using wash cloths). So, I usually make enough wipes to last a few days and keep the jug handy. The solution itself stays good, but not for long once it’s been poured on the cloths.
