Homemade Baby Wipes- WONDERFUL!!!

So as many of you know, I've been trying to save as much $$ as I can, and man have I stumbled upon a GREAT one!
I am making my own baby wipes and have been using them for a few weeks now and guess what... they work and better yet, I know exactly what's in them and what's going on my baby's bum.
Here's the details...
2 cups of water boiled then cooled down to room temp.
Mix in 1 Tablespoon of baby oil and 2 Tablespoons of baby wash or shampoo.
All you do is take a roll of paper towels and cut it in half making 2 rolls. Then pull the middle tube out of one and place in a tupperware bucket with a lid(I got a set of three snap lid rubbermaid ones at Walmart). Just pour your liquid mix over the paper towels and snap lid on and let sit for @ least 30 minutes. Then flip over and let the towels soak up the rest of the liquid. You can just leave them in the container, or fold them up and place them into an old wipe container(I've done both and they both work great). Basically you get 2 containers of wipes for a dollar(I get my paper towels at the dollar store or with a coupon at Walmart For $1 each). Not bad, considering one container cost around $2.50 and refills are over $5 for a 3 pack.
This is one of my new favs for saving some cool, hard $$$!
