DIY Babywipes Solution

Babywipes SolutionDo you use cloth diapers?  Cloth wipes?  I first started making my own solution for the cloth wipes when my friend Mo gave me some reusable wipes for my birthday (she knows I am the kind of nerd that would eventually get excited about something like this)!  It took me a while to get in the habit of using the cloth wipes, and I’ve been using them for years now!

I have to admit that I am to the point of just using water instead of a wipes solution, but I do use the vinegar and tea tree oil in my dry diaper pail.  I thought a few of you might be interested in this, though, so I provided a couple of different recipes below.

Currently I store my wipes dry, and I wet them with water as needed.  I do HIGHLY recommend storing the wipes dry, as you don’t want them to mold.  If you want to store them wet, then I would use the 2nd wipes solution recipe.  Add more vinegar as needed.  Vinegar won’t cause the wipes to smell after they are washed.
