Save big bucks with DIY wipes

I was just browsing around on and came across an awesome article about making your own baby wipes.
I’d been totally focused on the benefits of cloth diapers, but hadn’t even thought of wipes yet!
You can use either baby washcloths — just cheapie Wal-Mart ones — or thick paper towels, depending on how much you love the environment (or loathe laundry). You can also sew your own wipes, using inexpensive flannel.
  • Strong paper towels (or baby washcloths)
  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of baby oil
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) baby bath wash
  • If you’re using paper towels, cut the roll in half.
  • Remove the cardboard roll, so wipes put out of the centre.
  • Mix together water, baby oil, and baby bath wash.
  • Pour the mixture over the paper towels or washcloths.
  • Store in an airtight container.

So what do you think?
