These homemade handy wipes are easy to make from household ingredients. 

To make homemade handy wipes cut one big roll of Bounty paper towels in half and remove the center cardboard roll. Place the half-roll in a ten-cup Rubbermaid container and pour in the following: two-and-a-half cups water, two tablespoons antibacterial liquid soap or baby shampoo, and one tablespoon baby oil; let sit for 15 minutes. When ready to use, pull from center of roll. You can also add a few drops of essential oil or witch hazel, depending on what you want to use it for.
