6. How to make a reusable wipes spray solution
Reusable wipes are a great alternative to disposable wipes! Not only are they much better for the environment but they are a huge money saver.
A set of 25-30 reusable wipes can replace all those packets of disposable wipes.
What we also love about them is that you can have total control of the chemicals that go next to your baby’s skin. We often get asked how do you wet your reusable wet wipes when inside or out and about with your baby?
In this video Maria will be showing us how to make your own spray to use with reusable wipes using three simple ingredients.
This spray is:
- easy to make
- smells great
- great on your baby’s skin due to the added lavender essential oil
