Lula's cloth wipes have been mysteriously disappearing and the ones that are left are getting a little nasty. So, I decided it was time to make a fresh batch! I found some flannel in fun colors on sale and cut them into a bunch of rectangles. I just used an old wipes container as a guide and cut my flannel so that it will fit nicely in the container.
I used a blanket stitch to sew two pieces of flannel together so that they are fairly thick and durable. Notice I did not worry about making them perfect! Once you wash them, the edges will fray a bit and they are being used to wipe a baby's butt after all, so no need being a perfectionist on this project!
Once I was done, I had a nice new stack that fit perfectly in our cute wipes container!
And now for my homemade wipe solution:
Basically you just need about 1 tsp of Dr. Bronner's soap and about 2-3 drops of tea tree oil. Mix it with a few cups of water and pour over the wipes. Tea tree oil is naturally anti-bacterial and smells great! Much better than the store bought wipe smell. Some people prefer to put the solution in a spray bottle and spray it on a dry wipe before using. I prefer the other method just because it's one less step! Either way works, though!
There is your green project for St. Patty's day! Enjoy!
