An idea for homemade baby wipes is to get a Rubbermaid container, with a tight fitting lid.

Fill it with dry cotton rounds or cotton squares, the kind you use for removing your make-up.

Then add a few squirts of baby oil, and fill the container with warm water.

Close the container until you need a fresh wipe.

They work just as well as the store-bought wipes but are cheaper, and in this way, you can be sure of what is touching your baby's skin.

Thanks to Sherri for this great Frugal Baby Tip!

    I use cloth diaper, so for me it makes more sense to use a wash cloth that will be washed with the diapers. I keep a spray bottle with a water/soap/olive oil mixture to spray on my son's bottom to clean it and just wipe with a wash cloth.
