I had a request for homemade baby wipes after posting about making my own cleaning wipes. http://dealinanddishin.com/?p=134
There are a lot of recipes online for these. What I found the most common was either boiling water first or using distilled to avoid molding later and using some kind of preservative or antibacterial like tea tree oil or vinegar.
If you need vinegar here’s a coupon for Heinz

It took me a bit to find the right container for the right price. Ended up with this one from the dollar section at our Buy Low grocery store.
I decided to try a simple wipe this time. Personally the tea tree oil is very strong smelling. It’s a mint smell and we have Tea Tree Oil Shampoo and I like that but for a baby I wasn’t sure. I will research some other uses for the Tea Tree.
Then I had decided to put the vinegar in because the wipes smell so sweet to me with the Baby wash and I keep these in the bathroom for the kids so they will last a long time. So I added 2 Tbsp of the vinegar. I would recommend putting all the ingredients in first then the water. The smell lingers but is mild.
Next time what I will change…it might be a touch too soapy so I will reduce the soap to 1 1/2 Tbsp, keep the oil the same, oil, and the vinegar.
