Spice Traders Baby Wipes

I recently have started making my own baby wipes. One reason is to cut down on costs. Another reason is because I know exactly what is in the baby wipes, and I don't have to worry about harsh chemicals, dyes or perfumes that can sometimes irritate the skin.

One of the ingredients that I use is Spice Traders because of its antibacterial and anti viral properties.

Let's be honest, baby wipes are used for more things than just changing diapers. We use them to clean off our hands while camping or playing outside. I use them to wipe runny noses or scrapes and scratches. They can also be used to wipe down shopping carts if the store doesn't already provide Clorox wipes for that purpose.

Not only are wet wipes made with Spice Traders smart because of the bacteria and viral fighting properties, but the wipes smell so good too.

Spice Traders Wet Wipes

A roll of paper towels cut in half
A round Tupperware, that the half roll will fit into
2 C water
2 Tbls Baby Oil
2 Tbls Baby Soap
5 to 8 drops of Spice Traders Essential Oil

Cut your roll of paper towels in half. Place one half in the Tupperware, and set the other half aside for the next time you make wipes. Mix together water, oil, soap and spice traders and pour over your paper towels.

Let it sit for a few minutes before you try to remove the cardboard center of the paper towels. Once that is removed, wait another 15 minutes to let the paper towels equally absorb all of the liquid. After that, begin using your baby wipes by pulling from the center.

Paper Towels
by: SL1

I would not put anything down your septic system besides toilet tissue and human waste. The toilet tissue is made to basically disintegrate when wet. Notice that when you get toilet paper wet it falls apart very easily. Paper towel is much tougher, hence the constant commercials about it having more absorbency than the next brand. It doesn't break down as quickly and can cause problems. Plus your plumbing is designed to carry the waste and paper away slowly, it is angled so that the water moves slowly carrying the waste with it. If the pipes were angled steeper, the water would be gone and not carry the waste with it. If you put big clumpy wads of paper towel down the toilet you could run into problems with clogs. Also, never under any circumstance put feminine hygiene products down your toilet! I work in the maintenance industry and see these kinds of things all the time.

Hope this helps.

Septic system and homemade baby wipes
by: Anonymous


Thanks for this awesome article! Do you know if these homemade baby wipes are safe to dispose of in a septic system? We live in the country and therefore have a septic system. I would love to try these, but would want to dispose of them via flushing in the toilet and I'm not sure how paper towels would effect the septic system.
