Using a bread knife or an electric kitchen knife, cut a roll of paper towels in half, so you have two short rolls. Remove the cardboard center, and place the towels in an airtight container (old wipes container or Rubbermaid container). Or use old flannel receiving blankets cut into small pieces or blue shop towels or other soft cloths. Pour one of the following recipes over the towels.
Lisa's Baby Wipes
1/8 - 1/4 c oil (mineral or baby oil)
1/8 - 1/4 c baby shampoo
1-1/2 - 2 cups water 8 drops of lavender oil
5 drops of tea tree oil (optional)
Add the baby shampoo last, mix the solution gently.
2-1/4 cups water
2 tbsp baby shampoo
1 tbsp baby oil
Anti-fungal Baby Wipes
1/2 c. distilled water
1/4 c. vinegar
1/4 c. aloe vera gel
1 TBS. calendula oil
1 drop lavender essential oil 1 drop tea tree essential oil
Note: If baby has a really red, raw diaper rash omit the vinegar.
Or just keep a roll of toilet paper on the changing table and flush them away!
