I cut pieces of flannel and just use water on them the first few months.

Re: Homemade Baby Wipes?

There are WAHM businesses that make "family cloth" or "cloth wipes." You could look at their stores and follow their style. I will probably be putting some barely used ones for sale in a bit. I wanted to use them for me for wee, but they weren't working with my washing regimen.

I made 4 dozen double-sided flannel wipes. I use them all. It was worth the work.

I made some w/ flannel and terry or sherpa and then just wet with water as needed. I'm not into fussing with solutions, having to make it, keep it from going moldy etc

Re: Homemade Baby Wipes?

I used an old flannel sheet and a large flannel receiving blanket, cut 8x8 squares, and zig-zag stitched the edges -- and that is ALL I know about sewing, so if I can do it, anyone can. I have a mixture of water, Dr Bronner's, and TTO in a spray bottle and I just spray the wipes or my DD's bum and wipe -- easy. I have read about people putting their flannel wipes in a regular wipes container, pouring their solution over it, and using them like that, and changing it often so they don't get yucky. Not sure how often that is, maybe every few days? I imagine you should just wet enough for a few days and then refill it.

Why don't you make a wipe solution you can keep in a spray bottle and spritz the wipes when needed.

I take old sweatshirts and cut them up. No need to sew and one side is sort of grippy and the other is softer. I then leave them in a diaper warmer with water and a touch of dove. I use them all within a few days and then rinse and wipe out and do again
