DIY Natural Baby Wipes

Looking for a quick and easy natural alternative to regular baby wipes? I just made some and you can too! 

2 TBSP Dr. Bronners Baby Mild Liquid Soap1 TBSP Witch Hazel6 Drops Tea Tree Essential Oil2 Cups Hot Water1 Roll Heavy Duty Paper TowelSharp KnifeOld Wipes Container

NOTE: *Use half of a used-up paper towel roll, this way, you will have less wipes since they won’t last forever, as they will tend to mold/mildew after only a few weeks because of the water content, so you can’t really make them up in advance. Adding a few drops of tea tree oil, which has antibacterial properties and smells great, works for me. You can also use 1 tbsp. of olive oil if you'd like a little extra glide. 

-Cut paper towel roll in half-Find an empty good-sealed container. I used an old baby wipe container.-Mix ingredients together in the container first-Put paper towel roll ...cut side down...in container.-Close lid and turn upside down for a few seconds so the wipes get wet, then open container back up.-Wiggle out the brown roll that is inside of paper towel and dump out the remaining liquid.
