Homemade baby wipes come in very handy when you are camping! Whether or not you have a baby, you'll find yourself reaching for these little reusable cloths again and again.
You'll discover more uses every day!
I use old flannel pajamas or worn-out cotton T-shirts
The tight-fitting lid is essential! Be sure that the container is as big as you want your wipes to be.
I buy this in bulk at my local natural food store. You can also buy it here.
You may want to boil the water and let it cool before making your wipes. This will ensure that the water is free of impurities, and may keep the wipes from developing a sour smell.
I don't do this, though, and have used my container of wipes for up to one week without noticing any unpleasant smells. It's up to you!
Place your container on the fabric and trace it.
Cut out the pieces.
Put 1 cup/250 mL warm water into the measuring cup.
Add 2 tsp/10 mL of the liquid soap.
Put a layer of fabric pieces (an inch or two high) into the container.
Pour some soap solution over them.
Repeat with another layer of fabric and more soap solution.
Repeat until you've used all of the cloth pieces.
Make another batch of soap solution if necessary.
Now that you know how to make homemade baby wipes, you can make Smores at your next campfire and not worry about getting sticky marshmallow goo all over everything!
