I absolutely love cloth diapering my son. If I would have know what it was all about when my 4 oldest were born they would have been cloth diapered too. When I was pregnant I did a lot of research and learned a lot about cloth diapers, wipes and that you can make your own homemade solution however you want. I thought Id share my recipe that I have been using ever since he was born that works very well. 🙂 I make mine in a large batch.
Distilled water- I use distilled because I have heard that using tap or drinking water can make the mixture smell if your making it in large batches.
Tea tree oil
Baby wash- I use whatever baby wash we are using at the time like seventh generation or California baby
I don’t measure out my ingredients but usually it will be at least 98% distilled water, about 2 drops of tea tree and lavender oil, with the baby wash and baby oil I use a few drops of that as well. I love the way it smells and it has never irritated my sons’ bottom. I have tried a few different cloth wipes like home made ones I had found on ebay but my favorite that work well at this stage are Thirsties cloth wipes.
Do you have a recipe for cloth wipes solution? I would love to hear your recipe too 🙂
