Wipe Solution Recipes

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My Recipe:


I use an old wipes box and put about a cup of warm water in it, then add 2-3 ounces of coconut oil (gentle on sensitive skin, skin softener, soothes skin, gentel cleanser and effective against rashes), an ounce of vegetable glycerin (natural skin protectant, emoliant and preservative), about five drops of vitamen e oil (good for skin, natural preservative) and a couple drops each of rosemary (promotes healing, soothes skin, anti-microbial properties and great for sensitive skin) and tea tree (anti-microbial props) essential oils.


I just use cloth wipes with this solultion, also you can put the solution in a small spray bottle and take along dry cloths/towels for portable use.

from to the best of my knowledge

To prepare a roll of paper towels to become baby wipes, cut it in half so you have two short rolls and remove the cardboard center. Place a short roll in an airtight, water-proof container (like an old baby wipe box or tupperware container), and pour the solution over the towels. Put the lid back on the box and turn it upside down so the solution is absorbed. Blue shop towels have been recommended by mothers for this. The solution could be kept in a jar and cloth towels dipped in it.

Lisa's Baby Wipes

1/8 - 1/4 c oil (mineral or baby oil) 1/8 - 1/4 c baby shampoo

1-1/2 - 2 cups water 8 drops of lavender oil

5 drops of tea tree oil (optional) ½ roll paper towels

Add the baby shampoo last, mix the solution gently.
