Baby wipes solution revisited

Two years ago I did a post on the baby wipes solution that I use. I have been using this wipes solution ever since and swear by it. I have spoken to a few people and they mention how their solution has gone mouldy due to how they use the product. What most people do is fill a container with cloth wipes and then pour the solution over the top I use this product a little differently. I buy good quality rosewater and witch hazel in 1L containers to keep me going for six months or so.


Baby wipes solution

2 cups water

4 T rosewater

4 T witch hazel

I use an old jar with markings on it so I don’t have to measure the solution out every time.

So my real trick to using this solution is to have a container that I pour some of the solution into and then I simply dip my cloth wipes into the solution every time we need to change John’s nappy. The solution and wipes stay fresh and are ready whenever they are needed. I love this solution and wouldn’t be without it. What do you like to use?

    So first time mum to a 4 month old here and we are just using cloths and tap water… Have had no problems so far, what are the advantages of using a solution?

      So just clicked through to previous article (duh) and will give this a go if we get the dreaded nappy rash!

      I like using the solution for it’s anti bacterial and calming properties. I also feel it is calming on my boy’s bottoms especially after poops. Mx

    My baby got a bit red with the Wendyl Nissen recipe, so now I brew a small cup of chamomile tea, put it in a spray bottle and use it that way (with dry wipes). It’s working really well!

      What a great solution! Good for you. I’m glad this chemical free option is working for you. M x
