Recipe to Make Your Own Wipes

Cut Bounty (reg. roll) in half and pull out cardboard.
In 1.4 liter cylinder container mix:
1 1/2 c. water
1 1/2 T. baby shampoo
3/4 T. baby oil

Push 1/2 roll in and put lid on. Turn upside down for 5 min. to saturate.

**Do NOT try generic paper towels -- they make a MESS. Bounty is best.
**Only use Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo & oil. Do not use the "baby wash" or generic brands as the smell will not be very nice. I like my babies to smell like babies!

My sister bought these supplies for me when I was pregnant with MaryBeth (7 years ago). I have heard that Rubbermaid does not make this same size container any more so the recipe may need to be "tweaked" to adjust for larger containers & roll sizes.

I have a 1.4 liter (6 c.) cylinder Rubbermaid container & it fits only the regular size rolls of paper towels. There are "large" rolls of paper towels out there now that would fit a larger cylinder container, but I do not have all the specifics for those. I think Jenny Sauder does though (although maybe give her a few days before asking since she just had her newest baby last week). :0)

It is not hard to "tweak" the numbers yourself though either. The original recipe had much more round numbers (2 c. water, 1 T oil etc..), but I thought it was too wet, too soapy or whatever and adjusted the numbers down to make them the way I like them.

One price tip here: Shoot for less than $1/roll of the Bounty.
