Years ago, our grandmothers used rags to wipe the bottoms of their babies. Thankfully, wipes were invented. Now there's no need to shell out all your hard earned cash just to wipe a rear. You can part with a little change, and make your ow wipes!

Baby wipes for the frugal family.

To make your own baby wipes, you will need:

•1 roll of good, thick paper towels like Bounty™ or Viva™. (This is one of those instance where cheaper just won’t do, but these are still cheaper than the store-bought baby wipes.)
•2 1/4 cups water
•2 tbsp baby bath or shampoo
•1 tbsp baby oil
•round plastic container with a tight-fitting lid that half a roll of paper towels will fit inside
•large knife to cut the roll of paper towels in half with

Cut the roll of paper towels in half and remove the cardboard center. Save the other roll for the next batch of wipes.

Put the liquid ingredients in the container.

Put the lid tightly on the container and shake to mix well.

Take the lid off and put the half roll of paper towels in with the liquid.

Put the lid back on the container and turn upside-down to let the towels thoroughly soak.

After they are wet all the way through, they are ready to use. Pull the wipes out of the center of the roll.

You can use these wipes to clean your baby’s bottom, wipe your face in a hurry, and dozens of other little things that you can use regular baby wipes for.

Thanks for reading!
