1. A plastic container. I like to use an old store-bought wipes container.

2. A strong role of paper towels. A thicker brand is better.

3. You’ll also need a sharp knife to cut the role in half.

4. Boil 2 cups of water and let them cool to room temperature.

5. 2 Tablespoons of any baby shampoo or baby wash.

6. 1 Tablespoon of baby oil.


To make the baby wipes at home, first you will have to cut the roll of paper towels in half. Then remove the inner cardboard tube. You will then mix the liquids in the plastic container. Once you have mixed the fluids you can place the paper towels into the plastic container. After that close the container and allow the paper towels to soak up the liquid. Once you have finished that step turn the sealed plastic container upside down for about 10 minutes. Depending on how you laid the roll in the plastic container pull out a sheet and there is your wipe. Congratulations you have saved money had fun and helped saved the environment all in about 15 minutes.
