Use old and stained diaper liners and/or diapers as bum-wipes.

Store damp cut-up pieces in an old commercial wipe box or a Tupperware® container (leave lid slightly ajar to avoid mustiness).

You can use either plain water, mild baby soap and water (very dilute, not my top choice) or witch hazel to dampen your wipes.

This saves you having to stop by the sink on the way changing change table.

You can also keep plain water wet wipes handy, then just use a spray bottle with mild soapy water and rinse with the plain water wipes.

Then we toss the used wipes in the diaper pail and wash with the cloth diapers.

Thanks to Julia for this Frugal Baby tip!
