Due to the arrival of our sweet little boy, my crafting time has had to take a little break.  So instead of a fun little craft post by me, you are getting a practical DIY project — baby wipes — very fitting don’t ya think?  When I had my first son, my book club friends shared this recipe for homemade baby wipes.  I just love them and have been making them for the last 4 years.  I’m actually on my second container since I wore out the first one.

Start with a roll of paper towels.  I like the Bounty Basics towels the best.  My husband used to cut them with his saw, but now I just use a knife to cut through the paper towel roll.  Works fine and I don’t have to wait for the hubby to cut them when I need them.

There’s not much to these wipes — so easy and cheap!

Homemade Baby Wipes

2 cups water

3 Tbsp baby oil

3 Tbsp body wash

1/2 a roll of paper towels

Mix the baby oil, water and body wash in a sealed container.  Place the paper towel roll inside as well.  Seal the container and turn it upside down.  Let it sit and soak up the liquid for about 5 minutes.

Pull the cardboard tube out from the paper towel roll at the end of the 5 minutes.

To use the wipes, pull the first towel piece from the center and tear at the perforation.  As long as you keep them in a sealed container they stay moist for a long time.  With a new baby they just don’t last all that long anyway 😉  These also work great to clean up kids after messy craft projects or sticky treats!

Who couldn’t love that face?  Here’s Bennett’s one-month picture.  He will be 6 weeks old tomorrow.  My how fast the time goes.   Hope you enjoy the wipes as much as I do!
