Natural and Thrifty in 365: #60 Use Cloth Baby Wipes

When my children were still in diapers, I used cloth wipes in order to save money and not have to spread chemicals on my babies’ bums. You can easily make your own baby wipes if you have some leftover flannel. I would make mine out of old flannel shirts, pants and even receiving blankets.

Check out this tutorial on how you can make your own cloth baby wipes at Joyful Abode.

To clean cloth wipes, you can do so by hand or run them through their own rinse cycle and then wash with detergent and vinegar.
