Simple Homemade, Reusable Baby Wipes

The panic buying is causing a shortage of essential items for parents of young children. One item that has been selling out in every store is baby wipes. If you are in need of baby wipes, or are worried you will run out, then this post is here to help.

DIY reusable baby wipes are so simple to make, and guess what? Many people use this method all the time as it is frugal and environmentally friendly.

What you will need:

  • An old towel or face cloths (I used 3 face cloths cut in half as I have a toddler)
  • Cooled boiled water
  • A tub (like a cleaned ice cream tub or Tupperware with a lid)
  • Baby wash (just the wash or bubble bath you use normally)
  • Scissors


  • Cut your old towel / face cloth into smaller squares. 6 wipes is enough to keep me going as I have a toddler. Parents of newborns might want to make more.
  • Boil some water and leave it to cool.
  • Mix a few tablespoons of baby wash into your water.
  • Pile you squares into your tub and pour the water and baby wash mixture over the top of the stack, so each cloth is coated but not dripping wet.
  • Place the lid on.
  • Now, your reusable baby wipes are ready to go. Just use one for each nappy change and wash in a hot wash.
  • Once washed, repeat the process with the cooled boiled water and baby wash mix.
