How to Make Homemade Baby Wipes

We go through a lot of baby wipes in our house, and we don’t just use them when changing diapers. They are used to clean up messes, wipe sticky fingers, and much more. You’ll be able to find a pack of wipes in almost every room, bag, and car at our house.

Since we go through so many wipes, I thought I’d try making Homemade Baby Wipes. It’s really quite simple to do, and you only need a paper towel roll and three ingredients.
