3 Ingredient *All Natural* Homemade Baby Wipes

Blog image for simple homemade baby wipes.

Mom  Truth: I use baby wipes for everything. They aren’t just for bum changes. I use them as face cloths, hand wipes, toy cleaners, and even furniture wipes. Even though I’m almost done with diapers forever, I have a feeling that I’ll be using baby wipes for a looonnng time to come.

Which is one of the reasons I make my own homemade baby wipes. I can save a lot of money using this DIY recipe for homemade baby wipes. It’s a simple DIY, using products you already have in your home. I have seen some homemade baby wipe tutorials that call for really fancy ingredients, but this homemade baby wipe tutorial is just water, baby soap, and a little bit of baby oil.

Another reason this is my favourite homemade baby wipe tutorial is because it uses ingredients I already know work with my little ones. My kids have very sensitive skin, especially my oldest. I can use the soap and the oil that I know is okay to use on my little ones already.

  2. If you don’t have baby oil, you can use coconut oil.
  3. Cut your paper towel on an easy to clean surface because it gets very messy.
  4. Use a paper towel with a little stretch.

For This DIY You Might Need:

This is my disclosure statement


You Will Need:

  • A container that seals and fits half of a paper towel roll
  • Paper towel roll cut in half
  • 2c of warm water
  • 2tbs of your favourite baby wash

How To Make Them:

Mixing all the ingredients for the homemade baby wipes

Add the warm water, soap, and oil to your container. Gently stir until it’s well mixed.


Adding half a paper towel roll to homemade baby wipe mixture.

set you paper towel inside the container with the baby wipe mixture. Let it sit until the entire roll of paper towel is soaked. It might help to put the lid on for a couple of minutes.


Pulling the cardboard center out of paper towel for homemade baby wipes.

After the paper towel roll is completely soaked, gently pull the cardboard center out.


Pulling up a sheet of paper towel from the center of the roll.

Finally, gently pull up the paper towel through the center of the roll. This will allow for easily dispensing one homemade baby wipe at a time.

    I’ve never tried making my own beauty products. I go through a lot of wipes though so I could see me making this. I’ll have to get some baby oil. I could use these on Abby too. She’s allergic to just about anything but not baby oil.
