I use the dry wipes till use method. For just pee (not every time) I do a quick squirt on the wipe & it freshens her up nicely. For poop, I spray the wipe real good before I take the diaper off and then get as much poop off with the diaper. I spray her bottom too for poop.

I use a mix of water, CA baby soap, TTO & lavender oil. Smells good & no rashes.

Re: What's your wipe solution?

Our favorite solution:
Clean milk jug, I just like having the quantity and handle.
Fill with hot water, mixes up better.
1 large squirt fav baby wash.
1 large squirt baby oil.
6 full pumps generic alo vera gel form from the tanning isle.
cpl drops tea tree oil to prevent odor, mildew, and mold.
cpl drops fav essential oil.
Fill wipes warmer or sposie tub half full, shake jug well and pour over them.
Lasts us a cpl days, so no chance of odor or ikey growth. We use them for all cleanup jobs. The jug lasts us a very long time.

I just wash them with the rest of the dipes.

And that's ours! Works great for us!

I use chamomile tea bag and 1 drop of teatree oil, and 1 teaspoon of apple cider vineger to each cup of water. My baby gets yeast rashes and this seems to help!

Re: What's your wipe solution?

I was making my own by mixing a squirt of baby shampoo and a few drops of oil in warm water and poured over my wipes in th warmer but now I use 2 pumps of CJ's carcass cleaner and I love it. Smells great and works like a charm

I do water, olive oil, tea tree oil, and natural baby soap. I make enough wipes for two days , using a Huggies wipe tub [the big ones] and keeping my wipes in there, wet.

Re: What's your wipe solution?

We just use the little baby wash cloths, perfect size, texture and they're cheap. I just toss them in the Lion's Heart cloth wipes warmer (I don't even fold them anymore, lol) with a mixture that I make up every couple of days that's just water with a couple of drops of baby oil and baby wash. Easy peesy.

I use cheapo baby washcloths.

1 squirt Dr. Bronner's unscented, a few drops TTO, and few drops calendula oil in my peri bottle from the hospital. Fill the rest with water and squirt on wipe at each change. Works great!

Re: What's your wipe solution?

I haven't done it yet, but I read the other day that someone made their solution and put it in the wipes warmer, then dipped the wipes in the solution before changing. When my wipes get here I might try this.
