Home Made Diaper Wipes

For the past 3 children I have used this recipe to make diaper wipes. I love them. I never run out of wipes because I always have the ingredients on hand. It only takes about 1 minute to make these and they work great. I also like that I know exactly what I am putting on my little ones bottom! I am also going to experiment and see if I can't come up with a cleaning wipes recipe to use as well. I'll post any success's!

1 roll Bounty paper towel cut in half (I use a serrated kitchen knife to cut, and these must be the thick good quality paper towels)
2 Tbsp. baby oil
2 Tbsp. baby shampoo
1 1/2 cups warm water

Cut bolt of paper towel in half. Put in a plastic container that holds it firmly. When I started making these I invested in a good container that was easy to open. You could try and recycle a food container to use also. Mix warm water, oil and shampoo. Pour over paper towel. Pull out wet center roll of cardboard. Wa la perfect wipes, your baby will thank you!


  1. I think Jeana Peterson at church knows how to make the disinfecting cleaning wipes.

  2. Or just use your Norwex cleaning cloth for light disinfecting :-)

    Will try the baby wipes if that's in our future :-)

  3. I just went to my first Norwex party and ordered a cloth, we'll see how it works!
