Homemade wet wipes are easy to make and a lot cheaper than buying shop-bought wipes. By making your own wet wipes you’ll know what ingredients have gone into them too.
 

To make your own wet wipes you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon baby oil
  • 1 tablespoon baby shampoo or baby wash
  • 2 cups boiled water
  • Strong kitchen paper towels
  • Water-tight plastic container
 

Instructions:

  • Fold your paper towels in half and layer them on top of each other in a suitable plastic container sized to fit. You can even use an old shop-bought wet wipes container.
  • Continue folding and adding the paper towels until the container is full.
  • Mix all the other ingredients together, adding the water last.
  • Slowly pour the mixture onto the dry paper towels.
  • As the mixture reaches half way turn the paper towels over so that the mixture is thoroughly absorbed.
  • As the paper towels begin to shrink you can fold and add more paper towels to the container and slowly pour over the remaining mixture.
  • Once you've finished adding the mixture, put on the lid until you're ready to use.
 
NB: if your container is not water-tight the mixture may drip out, so you may want to use the wet wipes when you’re at home rather than when you’re out and a about.
