I made baby wipes from ingredients I have at home. Even with things you have to buy to make them it saves money.

I was wondering if anyone has made these with aloe, or baby lotion added to make them extra soft...a friend of mine used to make wipes for her kids, but they are older, and she can't remember how much lotion she added...Thanks in advance.

I've done this for most of my son's life and he'll be 4 next month (still not fully potty trained, he's a tuff one)

I use an old (plastic) coffee can, washed out, I cut a roll of paper towels in 1/2 and it fits perfectly into the can. I then take 2 cups of hot water and mix in 2 tablespoons of babywash and 2 tablespoons of babyoil and mix. Then I pour it into the can over the paper towel roll. At this point it's easy to pull out the cardboard roll and disguard. Put on the lid then turn upside down and let sit for awhile, this will help distribute the liquid throughout the towel. The paper towels can be pulled out from the middle and ripped off.

I was just wondering if the recipe for the disposable wipes are ok for sensitive skin...my daughters have very sensitive skin, and my oldest has eczema...we usually buy huggies wipes because they don't break her out, but they are expensive!!

Quoting Lisa:

I'm not sure if this is what she used but I found it onlie:


Liquid Ingredients
1/2 c Aloe Vera Juice (soother)
15 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract (which kills bacteria)**
5 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil (or any flavor you like)
Enough boiling water to fill a thermos

Other Materials
2 or 3 receiving blankets you hate the most (or old t shirts, whatever)
1 Thermos
1 Rectangular casserole dish
1 Bowl


1. I cut all the receiving blankets into a pile of wipes that are bigger than a matchbook, but smaller than a piece of toast.
2. I pour all the liquids into my thermos
3.I place the thermos inside the casserole dish, with the little bowl under the spout. The bowl catches any spills, and the the casserole dish aids in this endeavor by keeping bowl and thermos close enough together.
4. I wait for BabyG to go potty in her potty (or, if we miss, her diaper).
5. I grab a cloth wipe, squirt water on it, and then clean whatever needs cleaning.
6. I throw the wipe into the little bin we use to hold the diapers



This one looks better Its disposible wipes:



Here’s the recipe:



1 roll of paper towels
2 T. baby oil
2 T. baby bath or shampoo
2 cups boiled water, then cooled
Old diaper wipe container
(or any airtight container will do)
