Amazingly enough, this recipe has been insanely popular on our YouTube channel for the past few years. We showed it on the news again this morning and I wanted to post it here as well. Personally, I like to make these as a gift and attach a recipe card for the new mom so she can continue to make these for years to come. 

You can substitute the ingredients with organic products, fragrance free products or whatever you choose. That's what is so great, you control the ingredients!

{Homemade Baby Wipes}

What you will need:
Empty container with a lid (reuse any old wipes containers if you can)
Roll of paper towels
1 1/2 Cups of water
2 Tablespoons of wash
1 Tablespoon baby oil

Instructions: Cut paper towels in half with an electric knife or a super sharp knife. Place one section of cut towels into a bowl. Mix water, wash and oil in a cup. Pour mixture over cut towels soaking them as much as possible. Let sit 10 minutes or more then flip the towels upside down so the mixture soaks the other way. After about 10 minutes, you should be able to remove the middle cardboard center of the paper towels. You can then use them as you would normal baby wipes.

In the picture above, I cut the paper towels neatly and put them in a square Ziploc container. The typical cost for making 90 wipes using the method above is only .34! Considering the average box of wipes (60 count) is $2.99, this is great savings.
