DIY: Homemade Baby Wipes

Don’t write me off yet.

Listen, I’m not a hippie.  I don’t make my own soap or use salt as deodorant.

A few short months ago I scoffed at my Naturopath when

she mentioned that she made her own baby wipes.

“Why in the world would she do that?”

Then I had a baby.  Then that baby started teething.  Then that baby got a sore bum…

Now I make my own wipes.

It’s simple, takes about 5 minutes to do, and is more cost effective…

Take it or leave it – I’m sharing the recipe with you anyhow.

You might scoff now, and look me up later.

Homemade Baby Wipe Recipe


Bounty paper towels

Hot (pre-boiled water)

Coconut oil

Burt’s Bees baby soap

Calendula Creme/Ointment (Wedela)



Unravel the paper towel. Separate sheets and cut them in 1/2.  Then stack them up in an old wipes container or another sealed Tupperware/glass container.

*recipe makes enough for 1/2 a roll of paper towel


Boil water and measure out 1 cup.

In glass bowl, scoop out 2 Tbsp coconut oil (it’s solid until you pour water over), add 1 cap full of  the Burt’s Bees soap, then add 2 drops or so of the calendula cream/ointment.

Pour 1 cup of boiled water over all & whisk together.

Pour mixture over wipes and let absorb.

Close lid and use as you would store bought wipes.


Trust me.  Arjen’s rash cleared up in 1/2 a day.

When I use the wipes his bum gets clean but not red.  It’s great, and they smell fantastic!
