DIY Baby Wipes

DIY Baby Wipes

Baby wipes. I use them for everything!!! I keep them in the car, in my purse, in different rooms of our house. From diaper changes to all the messes my three girls make, I don’t even want to know the amount of money we have spent on them. I recently went part-time at work, so I am looking for every way I can to save money.  First stop: DIY baby wipes!

These wipes are simple, cheap, and you know the exact ingredients!


  1. Glass Jar
  2. Fractioned Coconut or Almond Oil
  3. Baby Wash of choice
  4. Water
  5. Roll of Bounty Select a size paper towels
  6. Lavender Essential Oil (if desired and baby is older than 6 months)

Let’s get to makin’!

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Step 2: Use a bread knife to cut your roll of Bounty in half. I have tried other brands and they tend to rip.

Step 3: Boil 1 1/2 cups of Water (you can also use distilled water and not boil)

Step 4: After boiled, remove from heat. Add 1 teaspoon of your favorite baby wash.

Step 5: Add 1 tablespoon of oil.

Step 6: Add 10-20 drops of lavender essential oil and stir. (If baby is less than 6 months, skip this step.)

Step 7: Place paper towels in glass jar with cut side up.

Step 8: Pour mixture over paper towels.

Step 9: After 5 minutes, flip paper towels to cut side down. Remove the center roll. This will start the first few wipes from the center of the roll.

That’s it! Your own DIY baby wipes. So easy, huh? This mixture usually lasts me around a week. Change out weekly to prevent mold.

I am really liking our new wipes, and it is one less thing to buy at the grocery store! What are your favorite DIY baby products?
