Homemade DIY wipes

 
Pin It

Ready for another frugal money saver? Homemade DIY wipes. Seriously, watch out I'm on a roll and have around 5-10 more things to share with you!  Excited to be saving money its almost like playing a game. So this one was a no brainer and super easy to do and make. The costs was low and in the long run will save. I tested them today and sure enough no shredding and they are tuff and will hold up to use. Found here
 
The math on making your own wipes?
$.005 to $.008 a wipe!
that's around $10 a year on wipes!

  1. Bounty Paper Towels Mega PLUS Roll - These paper towels are very thick and will not break. Do NOT get thin cheap paper towels or you won't be very happy, trust me!
  2. 2 T. Baby Wash - Any brand will do, I get the cheap brand from Wal-Mart.
  3. 1 1/2 T. Baby Oil - Again, any brand is fine. I get the cheap brand from Wal-Mart.
  4. 2 Cups Warm Water
  5. Waterproof Sterilite Container - I got mine from Wal-Mart for about $4. Any waterproof container large enough (3 Liters) will work.
Take your paper towel roll and cut it in half so it looks like a large roll of toilet paper. (Its not hard at all, I was a little intimidated with the thought of it} Remove the cardboard tube from the center, as shown below. Next, mix your warm water, 2 T. baby wash and 1 1/2 T. baby oil in your waterproof container. Place your cut paper towel roll in the container and put the lid on. Now flip your container upside down for 1 to 2 hours so the warm water and soap can soak all the way through the paper towels. When using the wipes, pull from the center, as shown.
