: Here is what I use...

: You will need:

: 10 cup container (ex: rubbermaid, w/lid)
: 1/2 roll of Bounty paper towels
: 2 tbls of baby oil
: 2 tbls of baby bath
: 2 cups of water
: Cut roll of paper towells in half, remove center cardboard, mix liquid ingredients, pour on top of paper towels, pull first towel up. Each roll of towels makes 2 containers of wipes, which lasts aprx. 3 weeks.

: I have found that if I let them sit for about 1 hour all the liquid has enough time to absorb the entire 1/2 roll. I also have tried several brands of heavy duty paper towels, and have found that Bounty expands when wet and the others seem to shrivel up. Remember do not shake the liquid, it will foam up.

: Recipe 2
: No more expensive baby wipes! Here is a great recipe.

: 1-roll of Bounty papertowels cut in half & cardboard removed
: 2-cups water
: 2-Tablespoons each baby bath and lotion
: 1-plastic bowl (about 6 cup capacity-with lid)
: Bring water to boil and add baby bath and lotion. place one half of paper towel roll into plastic container, and pour solution over paper towels. Once cool, pull your "wipes" from the center of the roll. keep sealed when not in use to prevent evaporation.

: These are so important to use because of chemicals found in regular wipes.
