Super Great Smelling Lavender Wipes Solution!
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons baby soap (Johnson and Johnson Bedtime Bath) I feel like this is a little soapy, next time I make it I think I might try using a little more water or a little less soap.
1 tablespoon baby oil (Johnson and Johnson Lavender Baby Oil)
From this point there are several different ways you can go about this.
Paper Towels-Method One
- Take a roll of paper towels (I hear Bounty works best) and cut it in half.
- Put one half in a container, pour mixture evenly over the top, let sit about a minute
- Remove cardboard center. Pull wipes from center of roll.
Paper Towels/Cloth-Method Two
- Pour mixture into spray bottle. (I use one of the 8oz bottles from the travel toiletry section at WalMart, and also one of the little mini finger sprayers from the same area to keep in the diaper bag. Mine are purple, to match the Lavender!) I usually have some leftover which can be stored in the fridge to refill when the spray bottle gets low.
- For paper towels I used Bounty select-a-size, I would pull off one of the sheets and fold in half, the spray a bit of the solution on it. To save time and effort during the actual change, you can tear a bunch off and prefold them and store in a wipes container. Mercy LOVED to "help" with the unrolling and tearing apart part of this....she also really enjoyed dumping out the case after I had them all neatly folded....
- For cloth wipes, you can either purchase some made from cloth diaper stores, or of course make your own. Store wipes however fits your style best, I keep mine in an old Huggies case, a bigger one at home and one of the travel ones for the diaper bag. When needed spritz with the solution and commence with diaper change! I am without a wetbag at the moment so my used wipes are getting stored in another old Huggies case until they are laundered with the rest of my cloth diapers and fluffy paraphernalia.
Have I mentioned how awesome they smell?
