My husband is also extreemly picky about the kinds of wipes we use. They have to be strong enough so that they don't break while you're wiping a little bum but also soft and the perfect amount of wetness to clean up right. We have both decided that these are the best wipes we have ever used. They are strong, the perfect moisture content, and soft on a little bum. And because of the coconut oil they are great on baby's skin and your own dry hands too. There really is no going back to store bought on this one. I will probably still make these when we have no more baby bums to clean and
use them as hand wipes for sticky fingers or just to add some moisture back into my winter hands.
Homemade Baby Wipes
1 Roll of bounty paper towel (NOT a double roll)
1 Tbsp. your favorite baby wash
1 tsp. melted coconut oil
2 cups warm water
2 containers of your choice that are tall enough for 1/2 a paper towel roll and have a lid
(I found mine at the dollar store)
1 electric knife
Cut your paper towel in half with the electric knife. You can do this with a regular serated knife but it is very difficult. An electric knife is about $10 at Walmart and a great investment. I use it to cut my homemade bread and also for cutting corn off the cob in the fall.
Mix your baby wash, coconut oil and water together. I usually just mix it all in the measuring cup.
Fold your paper towel a bit in order to fit it into your containers. You're going to want to make sure the cut side is on the bottom of the container.
Slowly pour 1/2 of the liquid into each container. When the brown roll gets wet you can gently remove it from the center. Also pull out the first wipe from the center to start your wipes. Make sure that you keep the lid on your wipes when you're not using them or they will dry out.
