Thanks to Jessie for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Get a roll of good quality paper towels. Cheapies will fall apart. I use Bounty white, the big roll.

Cut it in half with a bread knife or something serrated (hacksaw?). Get a Rubbermaid #6 round container.

In the container, mix 2 cups hot water, 1 tablespoon baby bath, and one tablespoon baby oil OR lotion. (Add a drop or two of melaleuca (tea tree) oil and/or lavender oil if you want for a nice scent and the antibacterial properties of the Melaleuca.)

Drop the half roll of paper towels into the solution cut side down. Put on the lid and turn it upside down so it gets saturated (if you used really hot water, steam buildup might pop the lid and make a small wet mess for you).

When it's wet, pull out the cardboard tube, pull the wipes out from the center and voila! You've got nice smelling, great working wipeys.
