    Hmm, this is very interesting Lisa, I was thinking the same thing today. We've switched to cloth nappies and today I made wipes out of an old bath towel and I was wondering what to do with them. I haven't really thought about it tbh but I thought I would continue using water and a few drops of baby oil in it (have been using that since Maya was born but only with cotton wool) - have you heard of other ideas?

    :wave:

    Got this out of my green baby catalologe:

    50ml (3tbsp) distilled water
    30ml (2tbsp) aloe vera gel
    15ml (1tbsp) calendula oil
    1 drop lavender essential oil
    1 drop tea tree essential oil
    15ml (1tbsp) vinegar

    It says that the oils and vinegar acts as a preservative so you can store the solution fo up to 6 weeks xx

    this sites very interesting i made camomile tea (smells really nice) few drops of lavender, white vinigar and a little baby wash that i had free in bounty pack...i put it in a hand wash pump bottle also i made my own cloths out of a dressing gown i was gonna throw out..(fleece) and also some nappy liners out of it to.. you can use an old fleece blanket etc..

    i find it miles easier than using wet wipes coz i got nowhere to put the dirty wet wipes.. with the washables i just put then in the pale with the nappy..ive ordered 50ml bottle of teatree as its anti bacterial :) im only gonna make up enough solution to last a weekish next time so it doesnt go bad.. thinking? wonder if you can freeze the solution if you make a big batch :think:
