Living naturally and sustainably is all about knowing where the things you use come from. How much do most of us really know, for instance, about the chemicals in our dishwashing liquids or the materials in our babies’ diapers? We touch these things daily, yet we know so little about them. When it comes to our children, we can never know enough.

That’s why I was so excited to stumble upon a brief Do It Yourself article written for MOTHER EARTH NEWS by Sharon Smith nearly 10 years ago: Homemade Handy Wipes. There’s no guessing when it comes to these. You take out what you put in.

If you’re using store-bought baby wipes on your newborn’s bottom, you have every reason in the world to be picky about how they were made. Follow the steps for this easy DIY project for homemade baby wipes, and there won’t be any surprises…at least not from the handy wipes.

Up your Earth-friendly points by purchasing recycled paper towels like the ones from Seventh Generation, available at most grocery stores.

An added bonus: A box containing between 400 and 600 of the leading brand’s baby wipes can cost up to $20. You could easily buy 10 rolls of paper towels for that price, and you’ll end up with more than double the number of wet wipes. It’s a good deal all around.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to make my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
