Home Made Baby Wipes

I have made these a couple of time now. I must admit, I like them. I find them, not only money saving, but also eco-friendlyI don't use an icecream bucket, instead, I do it the "hard way" by folding the papers on top of eachother and placing them in an empty baby wipes container. I also do not own an electric knife as of yet, so I have actually been sawing the rolls into two with a bread knife :)

Homemade Baby Wipes
A recipe that the Duggars learned from Gil and Kelly Bates, parents of 18--soon to be 19--children (as of December 2011).
  • Using an electric knife, if available, cut an entire roll of paper towels lengthwise into two separate rolls. Each will be about the size of a toilet paper roll. The Duggars have tried other brands but have found Bounty to work best. 
  • Combine 2 cups of water, 1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol, and 2 tablespoons of baby oil in a mixing bowl. For extra softness and a sweet scent, add a tablespoon of infant bubble bath. 
  • Place one half-roll of paper towel vertically in a clean, 1-gallon container, such as an ice cream bucket. 
  • Drizzle the liquid mixture over the paper towel roll. 
  • Cut an X-shaped slit into the lid of the container, and place it securely on top of the bucket. 
  • After 30 minutes, open the lid and remove the cardboard tube  
  • To prevent the wipes from drying out, keep the lid on at all times. 
  • Feed the first wipe, from the inside of the roll, through the X-shaped slit for easy access.
