Cloth wipes are a natural component to cloth diapers – and surprise! There are just as many ways to save or spend money on cloth wipes as there are diapers 🙂
Here is how I do it – please comment on what you do, I love to hear different ideas 🙂
My favorite method is using Monkey Butt Soap Bits. She is a WAHM, super sweet and sells on DiaperSwappers.com
She makes them in so many yummy scents – which is why I get them. They are super affordable and buying these definitely saves you money over disposable wipes.
I melt 2 bits (you can use 1) in a cup of water in the microwave then pour over my wipes in a wipes container. Easy peasy! With my little boy 2 bits lasts me 3 days – and my wipes don’t even smell musty this whole time because of the ingredients.
I store them in this Huggies container – other mamas use wipes warmers too. I want one and have asked for one for a long time 🙂
For wipes I just take 2 pieces of flannel and zig zag the edges with my sewing machine. Easy!
Put the solution in a pump bottle and pump onto a dry wipe.
I don’t have one, but you could put your solution in a peri bottle (like what they give you in the hospital after birth)
Adding baby oil to the baby wash keeps your baby’s skin smoother
If you want to keep your home made solution in the form of wet wipes ready to use, you might want to add a teeny bit of TTO to your solution so your wet wipes don’t start smelling musty after a day, or just make a new solution every morning!
Of course keeping only dry wipes on hand solves that problem too.
What do you do? I’d love to hear responses!
