When old cloth diapers, receiving blankets, or terrycloth towels wear out; cut them into squares and serge or sew around the sides.

Or just buy some inexpensive washcloths!

Then put them in a Tupperware container or old wipes tub or a ChangePal.

Add a recipe for home-made baby wipe solution.

- Baby Wipes Recipe -

• 1 1/2 - 2 cups distilled water

• 1/4 cup Aloe Vera gel

• 1/8 to 1/4 cup olive oil (use extra virgin so there are no chemicals)

• 2 tsp. Baby Shampoo

• 2-3 drops Tea Tree oil or Calendula oil (optional)

• 2-3 drops Lavender oil (discourages molds)

Mix this solution together, use to wet your recycled wipes
