your fave wipe solution

I keep a conventional wipes warmer filled with cotton baby washcloths in the downstairs bathroom. Plain water was making the wipes smell like mildew so I began using California Baby wipe solution (diluted in boiled water). It works to prevent the mildew smell, but I can't stand the smell of the wipe solution, either! What is your favorite brand?
-I'm willing to order online--California Baby is the only one I can get locally, as far as I know.
-I would prefer a liquid concentrate so I don't have to work to dissolve cubes or whatever.
Thanks, ladies!

P.S. Wow, there are about a dozen solutions available on Amazon! Anyone try one of those? Some have no reviews at all.

Re: your fave wipe solution

3 pumps of CJ's carcass cleaner mixed with a yoghurt container of hot water. I pour this over my wipes in the warmer and we are good for 2 days for now. I always dry out the warmer with a dry wipe before I put a new batch in. I have never had an mildew smell ever.

My newest favorite are the wipe bit cubes made by Ruby Moon - made from goat's milk and smell amazing. Creamy and fresh at the same time.

eta: Sorry, I missed that you didn't want a cube to dissolve. These do disappear in hot water in about 5 minutes though, the quickest dissolving solution cube I've ever used.

Re: your fave wipe solution

I use a small squirt of Burts Bees baby wash and a little bit of oil. That's pretty widely available.

Re: your fave wipe solution

I just use water in my wipes warmer, but I don't put more than a day's worth at a time in there. It keeps it from smelling like mildew.

Re: your fave wipe solution

Wee essentials on etsy makes wipes cubes. They dissolve really quickly; I put one in a mug of water and microwave it for a minute. I bought the kissaluvs wipe solution, but I hate having to mix it with witch hazel every time I use it. PLUS she sells a sampler pack so you can try 10 scents at once.
