Unhappy Smelly Wipes...

Hello. I have a question about wipes. I have been making my own wipes solution (Baby oil, baby wash and baby lotion) in a half-gallon jug and pouring some over my clen wipes in a wipes container. My problem is- sometimes they get kind of musty smelling after they have been there a day or two. I heard that there is some type of essential oil that can be added to the solution that might help. Any ideas and or places where I could buy some? Thanks!

Yes, the antibacterial properties in tea tree oil will help. I think you can also use lavendar EO.

i would stop using the baby oil...it's probably what's causing the smelly in the first place. baby oil is incredibly bad in all aspects, it's not good for anything esp your baby. all it does is coat everything it can't even get into skin...it just begins to trap bad stuff in and good stuff out. so trade the TTO or LO for the baby oil...just junk that stuff.
