Homemade Baby Wipes

By Tia Ohm

What more could a mom ask for than a happy, healthy baby? You no longer have to worry about what are in your store bought baby wipes, because now you know exactly what they contain; only the gentlest ingredients to ensure a naturally cleaned baby’s bottom. This only took 10 minutes if you have all the ingredients in-house and is well worth the bit of time put in to it. 

What You’ll Need:

  • Bounty paper towels (or some other heavy duty paper towel)
  • Container for storing
  • 1 3/4 cups boiled water-cooled until warm
  • 1 T pure aloe vera
  • 1 T Witch Hazel
  • 1 T Baby Bronner’s
  • 10 drops Grapefruit seed extract (can use vitamin E too)
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 drops Essential oils of your choice (we prefer the smell of orange)

What to Do:

  1. Begin by bringing your water to a boil.
  2. While waiting, cut the paper towel roll in half with a sharp serrated knife. Accordion the paper towels and place in your storing container. (to accordion fold, unroll the paper towels folding over itself back and forth until you run out)
  3. Once the water is boiling, turn it off and allow to cool a bit.
  4. Measure out your other ingredients and add to the cooled, boiled water and mix.
  5. Pour it over the paper towels that are in your container and put the lid on. Wait 5-10 minutes and then flip, making sure they are soaked through.
  6. They are ready to be used!
