We’ve talked before about my love for lazy and easy recipes. Because, well quite frankly I do not have time for anything more. But I also can’t bring myself to spend unnecessary money, and baby wipes are one of the things that I put in that category. Not only are baby wipes really, really bad for the environment but with a kid using roughly 12,000 wipes in the first two years of life and those wipes costing on average 5.4 cents each…well, it adds up.
Since I have already taken the leap in cloth diapering for my youngest two children, cloth wipes seemed like a logical next step. In fact it’s kind of easier for me than disposable wipes because now the diaper and the wipe can go into the pail together.
At first I just wet each wipe with water, which worked just fine honestly, but something about it didn’t feel right. I guess I just felt like my kids butt needed to be cleaner than water alone could get it, and so to Pinterest I went. Y’all, there are tons of wipe solution recipes out there, but I dabbled with a few and eventually tweaked several together into one that worked best for my babies bottoms.
2 C Distilled Water
2 Tbsp Castile Soap
1 Tbsp Witch Hazel
2 Tbsp Fractionated Coconut Oil
3 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
Mix items together and pour over wipes in container.
