Stinky Wipes

I am having a problem with my cloth wipes smelling kinda funky. We use baby wash clothes with water and keep them in a warmer. I add more wet down wipes as the bin starts to get low so it's never truly empty. Any suggestions to help get the funk out of my wipes? I need to fix it or DH wants to go to disposable wipes

Your water is souring. Try boiling it first or using distilled water or adding a few drops of GSE or Lavender or TTO.

I was having the same problem and the water is going bad and beginning to mold must your wipes. Now I use nothern essence wipe solution and its perfect because the TTO in it gets germs and bateria away and keeps my wipes smelling great and my ds bum smells clean after I use them too...not that I smell his bum but it gives him a fresh clean smell...

Re: Stinky Wipes

I had the same issues. I washed the warmer super well, bought a new liner for the bottom and make my own solution now. I get 1 jug od distilled water and add a cpl drops of lav oil and tto, then some baby oil and a squirt od liquid dove soap. I let the wipe run out then add a small handfull of clean with a splash of the water mixture. Bofore I do that I leave the top open and let it air dry. I also periodically throw the bottom pad thing in the wash with the dipes! and clean it out again. HTH!!
