Cloth Wipes

I know what your initial thought is, mine sure was “Yucky”

I started out using them just for clean ups and wipe downs. I still use disposable wipes for Stenchies, but now I use cloth for everything else! In the morning during the heavy pee’s I can use 1 cloth wipe instead of 2 disposable to get the little one really clean.

I know you can buy them, but there are free/recycled options: you can use washcloths, or take old shirts (non printed parts) and cut them into squares or strips and use them.

There are lots of different things you can dip your cloths into. You can use watered down baby soap; you can add an essential oil, or tea tree oil, you can add aloa, olive oil, the options are endless but if you make it then you know there are know chemicals added.

Some people use just water!

Here is a basic baby wipe recipe to give you an idea of proportions.

• 1 1/2 cups water
• 1/4 cup Aloe Vera gel
• 1/8 to 1/4 cup olive oil (use extra virgin so there are no chemicals)
• 2 tsp. Baby Shampoo
• 2-3 drops Tea Tree oil (optional)
• 2-3 drops Lavender oil (discourages molds)
