Homemade Baby Wipes

Homemade Baby Wipes

Buy at Amazon

Babies are expensive…

That was a ground breaking discovery we recently made, I also learned that as my wife transformed into a mother, she became much more demanding. She demands that the baby has the best stuff. While I want the baby to be taken care of, I want to make sure I can afford to buy everything I am told to get.

That is where today’s post comes in, it is much cheaper to make things like homemade baby wipes, and luckily I can show the wife the ingredients and let her know that these are better for the baby and I am not just being cheap…

This is a pretty easy project, and if you have bought wipes in the tube containers, then you can reuse the container. Otherwise you will need to buy a round plastic container with a tight fitting lid


  • Container
  • Roll of paper towels (do not skimp and buy generic, you will need good quality towels that are almost cloth like – this is one thing that quality makes a difference)
  • Bread knife – sharp serrated knife to cut the paper towel in half.
  • 2 cups of water (boil and then cool to room temperature to kill contaminates or use bottled)
  • 2 Tbsp baby shampoo or baby wash
  • 1 Tbsp baby oil


  • Cut paper towel in half so that you have two smaller rolls
    remove inner cardboard
  • Mix liquids
  • Put paper towel in container cut side down (save the other half for the next batch)
  • Pour mix on the towels and let sit for 10 minutes or so until water is absorbed.
  • Pull a towel from the center of the roll (it may have came out when you removed the cardboard)and pull it up through the center of your container.
