Washable Wipe Solution

For those of you who are interested in using the washable wipes for nappies here is the solution I use:

What you will need

Tupperware tub

Boiling Water

Olive Oil

Essential Oil such as Lavender or Tea Tree



I get a tupperware tub or bowl and fill it with hot water – enough to more than cover all the wipes but don’t add the wipes yet. Add a camomile tea bag and leave to brew for an hour or longer. Remove the tea bag and add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and 2 drops of essential oil.

I used Lavender or Tea Tree oil as they have antiseptic properties and smell lovely. Be careful with essential oil that you don’t use it neat on your babies skin and you test for allergic reaction by using the wipe solution on a small area first.

Mix this all together and soak the wipes in the solution. Squeeze excess solution out of the wipes, leaving them damp. Fold them neatly and pop them in another tupperware tub ready for use.
