DIY All Natural Baby Wipes

Yum
Guest post by fellow 'Non-Housewife,' Kelly!


Ingredients for Kelly's Homemade All Natural Baby Wipes:
  • 2T Dr Bronner's Pure-Castile soap (scented or unscented) 
  • 2T Witch Hazel (I use Thayers alcohol free aloe formula) 
  • 1/2 t Olive oil 
  • 10 drops or 2 capsules of Vitamin E 
  • 1 1/2 C of water 
  • 1 roll of full sheet paper towel, cut in half, width wise. I use Bounty because it's strong. I've tried other cheaper brands and they just fall apart when using. 
  • 1 Rubbermade 15 cup/ 3.5 L sealing container. You can get them at most stores, just size it up to make sure the paper towel can fit. 
Instructions: 
  1. Heat water on the stove or in the microwave till it comes to a boil
  2. In a metal, glass, ceramic or heat safe bowl, combine Castile soap, witch hazel, olive oil and vitamin E
  3. Add boiling water & whisk together
  4. Pour over halved paper towel in container, making sure to saturate all areas of the top of the roll.
  5. Place lid on and wait for a couple minutes. The hot water mixture will melt the adhesive on the cardboard roll.
  6. Pull out cardboard roll and that should start the wipes pulling up form the inner circle.
What's awesome about buying all these ingredients? You can use them each for multiple uses!
  • Castile soup - body wash for you, baby, children, the dog, anyone! Wash fruits and veggies, use as a household cleaner.
  • Witch Hazel - Toner on face for anti-aging and even skin tone, treat insect bites, prevent ingrown hairs, sooth puffy eyes, stop ear infections from developing.
  • Vitamin E - Use on skin to heal and prevent free radical damage, heal scares, add shine to hair.
I started making these for my son when he was an infant. He has only had a diaper rash once (when we switched to solid foods.) I do not use them for travel or in my diaper bag, as you can imagine, it's just easier to use and transport store bought wipes in a travel pack. I also use these wipes on my face, hands and my own bum....they have many uses! Enjoy!

Do you make your own baby products? If so, please share below!

  1. Thank you for the natural recipe. I'd never heard of Castile soap before. Should try it on my dogs!

  2. It's nice to know there is this alternative to purchasing baby wipes. Plus, it seems like any product made in mass these days contains alcohol, which I think could dry out your or your baby's skin.

Your homemade baby wipe seems quite good and the ingredients are also available. We'll definitely try it for our baby. Using the market products may be little risky for newborns.
