No one likes their baby wipes! Or at least no one I know. They are expensive, they never clean the whole mess, they aren’t durable, the list goes on and on. I find ALL baby wipes, including Honest Wipes (which I do like and use), NEVER get all the (sorry to be blunt) poop particles off the tush. If you haven’t already, please give a try to my Homemade Tush Spray. I spray this on before I wipe Jack and it gently and cleanly removes EVERYTHING leaving Jack left with a crystal clean surface that my he loves. (Never had Diaper Rash). It’s only a few ingredients from your kitchen and takes under a minute to make.It may be the best homemade and not homemade product I have ever used, we have one in every room of the house as well as his diaper bag. If an earthquake happened, I would save the Tush Spray above my home computer.
ANYWAYS, wipes are expensive and usually total crap. Here is a great recipe for wipes you can make at home and will rock more than the crappy wipes you despise at this very moment. I know it seems weird but I think if you try it once you will never go back. *I would still use the Tush Spray with these just to make baby extra clean. Here’s the recipe……
1 Tupperware container (The size of 1/2 your paper roll)
1 roll of high quality paper towels (Bounty or Kirkland Signature Brand at Cosco)
1 1/2-2 cups warm water (depending on how wet you like your wipes, I use one cup)
1 TBS Dr. Bronner’s Castile soap (or you could use your current baby wash)
2 TBS almond oil or coconut oil (Coconut oil has amazing healing properties and can both prevent and treat diaper rash)
10-12 drops essential oil of your choice (You can try Sweet Orange, Lemon or Lavender)
1. Using a serrated knife, saw the paper towel roll in half. Pull out the cardboard tubing and place paper towels in the container.
2. Combine the water, soap, and oils in a bowl and pour over the paper towels.
3. Place the lid on the container and let sit so the solution soaks into all the towels.
3. Pull the wipes out from the center and you’re done!
I feel like if you are hating your wipes and dealing with diaper rash all the time this is your hot ticket. The Tush Spray and the Homemade Wipes guarantees you the happiest bum on the block because it’s chemical free and great for baby and for your pocket book. Some ladies have made really cute holders, here are a few of my favs for inspiration:
