Homemade diaper-wipe solution

Do you have a baby in diapers and want to save some money, as well as do something great for the environment? Consider using cloth wipes and making your own diaper-wipe solution!  Using cloth wipes with a homemade diaper-wipe solution is considerably less expensive than buying store-bought wipes, plus it’s easy to make, and smells great!  Homemade diaper-wipe solution is also great for cleaning up sticky hands and faces 🙂

Heres what you will need:

2 Tbsp Apricot kernel oil (or alternatively, 2 Tbsp of your favorite baby oil)
1 Tbsp liquid castile soap (or alternatively, 1 Tbsp of your favorite baby wash)
3 cups water
1 small spray bottle (you can find these at any CVS)

Mix the ingredients in a jar and shake it up. Pour into a spray bottle. To use, simply spray solution onto baby’s bottom and wipe with a cloth.  Apricot kernel oil smells delicious!  You can also add 2-3 drops of essential oil of your choice to your wipe solution, as long as your baby does not have extremely sensitive skin.  It’s really easy to make your own cloth wipes for free by cutting up unwanted/stained clothing or flannel sheets, or you can buy some nifty pre-fab cloth wipes (in my home we have done both).  Either way, you can throw the used cloth wipes right into the laundry with your diapers if you are using cloth diapers, or with your dirty towels. You can also make some pre-moistened wipes and keep them in a travel bag or in an empty plastic wipe container for extra convenience when you’re on the go.
