DIY Baby Wipes


First your going to have to gather your supplies. You will need:

  1. 1 roll of paper towel

  2. serrated bread knife

  3. 4 cup measuring cup

  4. 1 tbsp measuring spoon

  5. large bowl (not pictured above)

  6. storage container (I used an old wipe container I still had laying around)

  7. baby wash/shampoo

  8. baby oil ( or coconut oil, or olive oil)

  9. 1 tbsp white vinegar

First you want to cut the roll of paper towel in half using the serrated bread knife.


Then you want to measure 2 cups of water into your measuring cup. Followed by 3 tbsp of baby wash/shampoo and 3 tbsp of baby oil (or oil of choice) and 1 tbsp of white vinegar.



Stir the mixture and place half of the paper towel roll into a large bowl and pour mixture over top. Make sure to try and coat the paper towel as evenly as possible.


Let the paper towel sit and soak up the moisture for roughly 5 minutes then flip it over, allow it to sit for another 5 minutes before gently removing the cardboard tube in the center. Then place the roll in whatever storage container you choose and pour remaining liquid from bowl over top. I chose a old wipe container so my roll had to be slightly smushed into it but it doesn’t effect how the wipes come out. Find the end of the roll in the middle where the paper tube was removed.


Pull the wipes up through hole in the wipe container.


* I used baby oil at first but I now currently use coconut oil and I like it much better.

* I used Sparkle paper towel, it has proved to be very durable but once wet the 2 layers offset and don’t meet at the dotted line to tear apart. I know use the cheap Kroger Brand Home Sense paper towel and they are amazing. Very durable and the layers stay intact.

* The vinegar I don’t have it pictured above but it just keeps the wipes antibacterial and mold free if you have them stored for a longer period of time.
