I’m sure there are some of you wondering what I use to wet down my homemade cloth wipes. Well, folks my truly flibbertigibbet personality hasn’t allowed me to land on one wipes solution I use consistently, but there are three that have been my favorites over the years that I’ll share here, along with tons of links to others!
Amy’s Wipes Solution #1 (aka Froo-Froo Solution)
You’ll need a container of some sorts like an old disposable wipes box. (I do know some people who use spray bottles to wet down wipes individually with their favorite solution, but I am not coordinated enough to accurately aim a spray bottle at a square piece of cloth…go figure) I fill the container with wipes and then pour over this solution:
2 c. warm water
1/4 c. aloe vera gel (I use Lily of the Desert)
2 tsp baby shampoo (I use Burt’s Bees)
1 tsp vinegar
5 drops lavender essential oil (I use Aura Cacia)
5 drops tea tree oil (also Aura Cacia)
Amy’s Wipes Solution #2 (aka Diaper Rash Solution)
Once again, you’ll need a container. Fill with wipes and pour this solution over it:
2 c. water
1 tsp vinegar
Gently and liberally wipe diaper area. Let air dry.
Amy’s Wipes Solution #3 (aka Simply Lazy Solution)
Warm tap water on dry wipe as needed
(Can you guess which one I use when I’m pregnant or overwhelmed or both?)
