I'm in search of something I can put in a bottle and squirt on her bottom. Anyone have any TNT recipes? TIA!

We use just plain water. Will someone please tell me if we shouldn't do that? so far so good for ds's bottom, though.

what is TNT??<br><br>
I use plain old tap water to moisten our cloth wipes. Works great and does not irritate sensitive skin.

I make a solution of water, lavender Bronners, aloe, almond or olive oil and a few drops of TTO and lavender oil. I make it by the gallon! (I have 2 in dipes!)<br><br>
Also not sure what TNT is

I mix the following in a spray/squirt bottle = water, tea tree oil, lavendar, castile soap, a little almond or other carrier oil.<br>
For the pp, don't worry about that-- we just use plain water in a pinch when we can't find our wipes spray bottle.

I like that "TNT" abbrev. That's cute <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I use one tablespoon of natural baby oil (Burt's Bees) and one tablespoon of natural castille soap (like Dr. Bronner's) per one cup of filtered water. It mixes up easily and so, far, so good as far as effectiveness. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

When she was in diapers, we just used plain old water, sometimes with a very little tea tree or lavender in it (only about 2 drops) and/or a little aloe or almond oil. I didn't like putting soap in it, but that's just me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Most times we just use plain water. However, when the kids bums are red or I get a few extra minutes, I make a solution of water, baby shampoo, almond oil and GSE.

We fill a squirt bottle with tap water, a few drops of apricot oil (burt's bees baby massage oil) and about 2 drops of Lavendar oil. Works great for us!

I agree w/all of the above <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
I like to try different combinations. For us, it has always been a combination of water, an oil (olive, apricot, jojoba), sometimes a squirt of Bronners extra mild, and an EO (lavendar, swet orange, if there is any rash TTO). You really only need a little oil, soap, & a few drops of EO.
