Earlier this month, I had a moment where I thought, “OK, time to panic.” My husband had just been to every store in our area and come up empty handed with a must-have item: baby wipes.
We’d already placed an online order to restock, but it would take days to arrive. I was down to the last few baby wipes I had at home. Help! The coronavirus pandemic had already limited our sense of security and ability to do, well, anything outside our home — but now I wasn’t going to be able to properly care for my baby? This was too much.
Before I started crying like a baby, I had a thought. What if I could make my own baby wipes? A quick online search provided several recipes, but some of the needed products were not readily available in my pantry. So, I had to be a bit inventive with my steps. Guess what? Despite my initial misgivings, the result was amazing! My hubby even claimed my homemade baby wipes cleaned our tot’s bum better than store-bought wipes. And, the process was so easy and used such few resources, I think I may just continue making my own DIY baby wipes from here on out.
Read on for step-by-step instructions on how to make your own baby wipes along with the only four products you’ll need to turn a potential emergency into a sense of relief and accomplishment.
