Question Homemade wipes solution with no oil???

Does anyone use wipe solution that you dont use oils to make it? I want to throw them in with my dipes and im afraid that the oils will make my diapers repel. I have founf one recipe so far for a wipes solution with no oil:
1 chamomile tea bag
1 tsp. honey
1 c. boiling water
Has anyone tried this?? Sounds like something I would drink no put on my DDs bum. lol Or any other ideas? TIA!

Re: Homemade wipes solution with no oil???

I can't help but I am interested- right now I use baby moon wipe juice concentrate and I was considering making my own when that ran out. I put my wet wipes in a warmer (about 2 days worth at a time) so I'm thinking of trying about a cup of water with some lavendar baby bath and some lavendar oil added- I get worried about needing something to keep them from growing bacteria. I add lavendar oil to my solution now and I use FB's and I've had no problems. I don't care for the scent of TTO- so I don't use it.

Lavendar oil has many of the same antiseptic properties as TTO and it smells better. I do believe that there is TTO in the Baby Moon concentrate and I add the lavendar to make it smell better- to me at least!

Re: Homemade wipes solution with no oil???

I plan on using my solution in a spray bottle. I'm not too worried about letting it sit in there for a couple days. Should I be??

Re: Homemade wipes solution with no oil???

I'm sure it would work - try it. I make a lot of teas that you could drink but you can also bath in as well. They work great on your skin so I don't see why they wouldn't work on the bum. They may sooth the bum well. Let us know how they work.

I do make a bum solution that doesn't have TTO but I do use Lav in it. I imagine you could try using the lav itself instead of the oil if you wanted.

As a general rule I'd say 7 days... I make mine & toss after a week.

I tell my customers that mix my Bum Wash that's made into little bars that once they mix it up to toss after a week, but usually by then you've used it up anyway. It should be fine though, but it's just a general rule that when you add water to something (unless there is a preservative in it like maybe GSE or Vit E or you put in the fridge) it could breed bacteria after too long.
