Whether you cloth diaper or not you can totally use cloth wipes! They’re so simple to use, they’re great in the wipes warmer (I use this one) and good for sensitive skin. I love these wipes because they’re just the right size and get the job done.
While you can just soak them in water before adding to the wipes warmer I can’t recommend using a wipes solution enough. Not just for the smell but the benefits it offers to baby’s skin.
I used to make a solution every time I ran out of wipes (holy time consuming!) until I finally tried making these wipes bits. Turns out, they’re super simple to make and once they’re done they will last for a month or so in an air tight container.
1 TBS coconut oil
20 drops tea tree eo
20 drops lavender eo
1// Using a food processor with the grater attachment shred the bar soap. You can also use a hand grater for this step.
2// Add the shredded bar soap into a sauce pan. Add coconut oil.
3// Stir and add just enough water to cover the soap (1/2-3/4 cup).
4// Simmer and stir until melted.
5// Once the soap is melted allow to cool slightly before adding essential oils. Stir to combine.
6// Using a cup with a spout pour the mixture into silicone molds. Allow to cool completely.
7// Store in an air tight container. Add 1 cube to 1-2 cups of water and soak wipes before adding to the wipes warmer.
