Homemade Baby Wipe Solution

Since using cloth diapers tends to lead to more bacteria build-up and yeast infections, I have found a wipe solution that wards that off! I have made my own wipes from flannel material and I use the flannel/hemp wipes sold here. I prefer the wipes sold here, but when on a tight budget the flannel homemade ones work too!

In a air tight container add:

1/2 cup distilled water

1 t Dr. Bronner's Lavender Castile Liquid Soap

6 drops of Young Living Tea Tree (Melaleuca) Oil

Mix and add your cloth wipes. This recipe also works if you are making disposable wipes from paper towels.

The Lavender smells good and kills bacteria. The Tea Tree is anti-fungal and kills the yeast. It works great!
