One of the best ways to save money and protect my kids' skin is to make my own baby wipes. I get to choose the scent of the products I use, it is WAAAY cheaper, and I have found them to be far more gentle on my rash-prone children's skin. Win-win-win.
- 1 roll of good quality paper towels (I like double rolls of select-a-size ones, either Bounty or Scott. Even if it seems a little costly, it's worth it and still cheaper!)
- 2 cups warm water, give or take (adjust based on the size of your paper towels and how wet you like wipes to be)
- 1 T baby oil, scent of choice
- 2 T baby wash, scent of choice (I highly recommend using the same as the oil)
- Large (and I mean, large) serrated knife, and bonus points if it's electric
- A sealable container for your wipes - must fit the roll of paper towels to over half its height. Options would include plastic zip top bags (as shown, I like the ones with actually zipper pulls for ease), plastic storage containers, jars, etc.
