Home-Made Wet Wipes

Home-Made Wet Wipes
Wet/Baby Wipes,  Glass Cleaner,  Bleach.

You simply need a closable container, a roll of paper towels cut in half, and a few ingredients. 

Recipes vary a little.  You can tweek them to your own liking. If you make different ones, be sure to label them clearly.  You wouldn't want to use bleach wipes on baby's bottom!  If you like, you can boil the water first to sterilize it. 

Wet Wipes/Baby Wipes
2 cups water
1 Tbsp baby wash or baby shampoo
1 Tbsp baby oil, mineral oil, or coconut oil.

I used a large knife to cut the paper towels in
 half.  It wasn't hard to do.

Mix the ingredients and then pour over the paper towels.  You can tip the container up and down to saturate the paper towels well, but it will work its way up.  The center cardboard pulls out easily after it's wet.

Pull the paper towels out from the center.  I used an 
actual wet wipe container I already had.

The moment of truth. I pulled one out, and it separated easily from the next one just like the store-bought ones.  :)

Some people use a coffee container like Folgers or a container from the dollar store. 

Bleach wipes
2-1/2 cups water
1/2 cup bleach

Glass Cleaner Wipes
2 cups water
1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
1/2 cup vinegar


1 cup white vinegar
1 cup water
1 Tbsp Dawn dish soap


2 cups rubbing alcohol
1 Tbsp Dawn dish soap
