Now that I've decided to plunge into CDing, I figure I should try some cloth wipes as well. For now, to save our money for the diapers themselves, I bought several packs of cheap washcloths from the dollar store, and I'd like to store them moistened in a wipes container. So, what's your favorite recipe? I should add that DD has very sensitive skin, plus it's also starting to dry out from the dry winter air in our house. Thanks!

rewet with water. Water is all I use anyway. But I guess I'm not really helping you much. Anyway we've used plain water for 2y without a problem. HTH.

I use a plastic wipes container. Our well water is smelly and rusty, so I use distilled water. Here is my recipe:<br><br>
a squirt of babywash<br>
a few drops of tea tree oil<br>
a few drops of Burts Bees Apricot oil<br>
Then I fill the container about half way full with distilled water<br><br>
Then I add as many wipes as will fit in.<br><br>
If I'm feeling lazy I just use babywash and water, or just water.

Oooh, I have both of those in the house! Do you use a few drops of the oil and a small squirt of the shampoo?

My concoction is similar to everyone elses. I use distilled water, a few drops of lavendar oil, a bit of tea tree oil, and a splash of Burt's Bees Apricot Baby Oil.<br><br>
But usually I just use water! I grab two wipes and get them wet. After baby's bottom is clean, I put a bit of Burt's Bees oil on the second wipe.

Could I use Lavender or Coconut Dr. Bronner's castille liquid in water? Do I need oil?

I use a little bit of Dr. B's lavendar in my wipe solution and a splash of witch hazel to keep it fresh. Or just use Baby Bits or Booty Bath soap pieces. I prefer Booty Bath because it has more moisturizing stuff in it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I use California Baby with lavender. I have only bought one spray bottle of it, as it is recomended to be highlly dilluted for a diaper wipe spray. You keep the rest of it in the fridge. My daughter has never had a rash, and it smells so sweet. I love all of there products. I buy it at wholefoods, but you can buy it online too.

I mix a bit of lavender baby soap, a couple of drops of Lavender oil and water in the peri bottle I got from the hospital. I tried it with the apricot oil, but I don't care for the smell so I switched to lavender.

I could be wrong, but what comes to mind for me is the lavender-scented Johnson's & Johnson's baby wash. Anyone?

I use a container and just dunk the dry wipes in as I need them (yeah..the water is room temp, no one minds :LOL). I mix up baby oil (usually burt's bees) and baby soap (this time was the Aveeno baby wash) in equal parts in a small bottle. Then I just add a splash to my container, fill with water and add a drop or two of lavender oil. I am getting grapefruit seed oil to add too....YUM. Smells soooo nice.

I use a spray bottle filled with regular old tap water, into which I squirt a few squirts of vitamin e gel, a few squirts of aloe vera gel and a squeeze or two of J&J lavendar baby wash. It smells so nice and Holden never gets a rash <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
