Last month, I did a series comparing cloth diaper wipes and I missed a crucial cloth wipe how-to. Here is my diaper wipe solution recipe.

2 c. Water
9 drops of Bronners Pure Castile Soap
5 drops of essential oil — I like tea tree or lavender.

I fold my wipes in half & place them in an old diaper wipes box. In a 2-cup measuring cup, I put in the soap & oil, then fill with water. Slowly pour it over wipes being sure to get the corners.

Use as needed.

Do you use cloth diaper wipes? What kind to you like best?

    I like this recipe; it’s easier and more natural than the one I’ve been using. What I do with mine is just pour the solution into a squeeze bottle (LOL, I use the perineal rinse bottle the hospital gives you after having a baby), and squeeze it onto a wash rag right before wiping down the baby. Works perfectly! Except when I need one more wipe, which isn’t all that often.

    That’s a great idea, too! Especially if you have the mold problem. Those bottles are useful for things like that, aren’t they?

    When I have tried this in the past, my wipes got moldy really fast. Do you have any tips for combating that?

    Really? Do you live some place warm, maybe? What fabrics did you use? Double or single-layer? I’ve done it for 3+ years and never had mold. I’ve even had them dry out.

    Let me know! It’d be interesting to get to the bottom of why.
