DIY Reusable Baby Wipes
Updated: Apr 19, 2021
Have you ever started making something and kicked yourself that you hadn’t done it sooner?
I totally wish that I’d had more success earlier with making my own reusable baby wipes.
My daughter is 11, my son is 2 and we have a newborn on the way. To think of all the money and waste I could’ve saved had I done this sooner. Anyway. It’s never too late to make positive changes.
One of the things that I absolutely love about making things myself, is knowing that I’ll never run out again or need to make a special trip to the shops. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times in the past I’ve gone to the shops especially to buy wipes or nappies. Not to mention you know exactly what is touching your bubs precious skin.
These wipes are a game changer.
You will need
25+ wipes (you can use face washers, cut up old towels or buy packs of reusable wipes. Or buy a pack ready done for you here)
A plastic tub with a lid (I had a Tupperware Wipes container already but any tub would work)
Lavender Essential Oil
1. Place your wipes in the container (I usually put half of my wipes in at a time as the other half are in the wash)
2. Fill with water
3.Push wipes down to ensure they are all soaked
4. Add 3-4 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
5. Pour out excess water down the sink
6. Squeeze wipes until wet but not dripping
7. Seal with lid and enjoy using these Zero Waste wipes
Note: if you are using MCNs (modern cloth nappies) you can wash your wipes with your nappies. Otherwise just throw them in the wash with clothes or towels.
