So as I mentioned earlier, we use cloth diapers & wipes. I thought I’d share a little how to on how I make our wipes(and why I absolutely love them!).

When we decided to use cloth diapers, I realized that cloth wipes come right alongside. It makes more sense to have something that goes in the same diaper pail as the diaper, rather than having to keep a separate trash can for wipes. I researched for different recipes and ingredients and finally put this one together (it combines my favorite parts of all the ones I found, and smells great).

I use baby kicks wipes. They’re pretty large and have one side of soft fleece, while the other side is a textured hemp to clean up yucky messes. They’ve worked great so far!

    5. Pour the solution over the wipes in the ziploc bag and let sit for at least 30 minutes(to let the wipes soak up the solution)

    6. Keep your wipes in the plastic bag or in a wipe warmer(my favorite!)

    I love these wipes because:

  • I know exactly what’s in them
  • They smell amazing
  • They do a much better job of cleaning up the dirty diaper messes
  • Less waste for the environment
  • I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
