Wet wipes are essential when you are a parent, because kids make messes from day one. In order to constantly be prepared it is wise to arm yourself with quite a large stash of baby wipes just in case. You'll be glad you did that. However, what happens when purchasing wet wipes puts a burden on your finances and household budget, or even worse causes your child to have an eczema? The easiest way to make a high-quality wet wipes that are all natural and safe, is to make them at home. This tutorial will show you how to easily make your own wet wipes, which are perfect for cleaning messes around the house or tending to your baby's needs. It was presented during a green Christmas workshop organised by Fantastic Services Group. Here is how you do it:

You'll need:


  • 1 extra-strong, 2-ply paper towel roll



  • Small food container, baby wipes container or a repurposed mason jar


Please note: you don't need all of those, just one, the one that works for you. The best way is if you can easily find one of these dumped somewhere at your home.


  • 1 tbs baby lotion/baby oil. If your baby has a sensitive skin, or your pediatrician has recommended you some lotion, use this one.


  • 2 tbs baby shampoo


  • 1 cup of distilled water


  • A few drops of tea tree oil - it disinfects and helps the skin recover from rashes.


How to do it?


  1. Cut the paper towel roll in two. Take one and leave the other for a later refill.

  2. Put the paper towel roll in your container of choice.

  3. Mix the ingredients together and pour them over the paper towel roll.

  4. When the cardboard piece in the middle of the roll is wet, it's easy to remove it. Just go ahead and get rid of it, because you won't need it anymore.

  5. Leave the container with the wipes to stay at least for 4 hours. I would recommend you to leave it overnight.

The whole thing should take no more than 10-15 minutes if you are a beginner, and the price for each batch is a little bit less than 75 cents. You can also make hand sanitizing wipes for yourself by adding rubbing alcohol to the mix. Enjoy!
