Make Your Own...

Baby Wipes

Ingredient lists can be SCARY sometimes. Especially when it comes to our baby products.

 

The first time I read the label on a popular brand of baby wipes, I was astonished at the amount of chemicals and harmful preservatives. Keeping ingredients simple and easy is always better in my books.

 

What if I told you you could make your own baby wipes with just 4 ingredients!? AND best of all, in only 10 minutes max!

 

I've played around with a few recipes, but this is my favourite.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of boiled water (warm when handled)

  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil

  • 1 tablespoon of Arbonne Baby Wash

  • Heavy duty paper towel roll (unfortunately the cheap stuff doesn't work!!)

  • 1 used baby wipe container or resuable wipe warmer 

 

- Boil two cups of water and let cool in a glass bowl.

- While water is hot, mix coconut oil and Arbonne Baby Hair and Body wash into the bowl.

 

- Cut paper towel roll in half (or into thirds depending on your containter size).

- Place roll into container.

 

- Pour warm mixture evenly over entire roll.

- Close lid and tilt from side to side to ensure coverage.

 

- Open lid and remove cardboard roll, while pulling the inside paper sheet up towards you.

 

-Pull paper sheet through the hole of your containers lid.

- Close lid shut and voila! Your own home-made baby wipes!

Laundry Detergent

Can't find washing soda in your local grocery store? No problem. You can make your own from baking soda.

 

Pour a thick layer of baking soda onto a baking pan or dish and bake at 400 degrees for about an hour. Be sure to mix it around a few times within the hour. It should be a grainy texture when complete. Store extra in a sealed container or jar once cooled.
