These are a handy way of saving money on buying expensive wipes, and also much gentler on little bottoms. Remember not to over-do the essential oil (for little bubs, I didn’t use any until he was eating solids).
I’ve tried these with other types of paper towels, even thicker brands, but I’ve found they only work with Viva. Today I picked up a double roll on special for just over $3. That’s only 50c per half roll used.
I have 2 round containers I purchased from the supermarket. Double the quantities to make 2 containers at once. We also have a smaller round container that we use for the nappy bag.
3/4 cup of filtered water
1 or 2 drops of melaleuca tea tree oil
A half roll of Viva paper towels
Simply cut roll in half, remove cardboard core, and put in container that already has the water and oil in it.
