This came about by accident, really. I had several different cloth wipes solutions and it didn’t really occur to me that the one I was finishing up was my last one. When I noticed a bottle of liquid castile soap and a lightbulb turned on. I could make an easy cloth wipes solution!
For a solution using a bar of castile soap, check out my other simple cloth wipes solution recipe.
How To Make Castile Soap Cloth Wipes Solution
Supplies you will need:
- 32-ounce spray bottle
- Liquid castile soap; we use Dr. Bronner’s
- Warm water
I used a 32-ounce bottle to make this easy cloth wipes solution, but you can adjust this recipe for a smaller container. The measurements don’t have to be exact, this is how easy this recipe is.
- Fill a 32-ounce spray bottle with warm water
- Add about two teaspoons of liquid castile soap
- Shake to combine
- Spray the mixture on a cloth wipe to clean your baby’s bottom
That’s it! Super, super simple.
What Is Castile Soap?
Castile soap is a vegetable-based liquid or a bar soap that is completely biodegradable and gentle on the skin. Dr. Bronner’s soaps are made with fair-trade organic oils and can be used to clean a wide variety of things.
Castile soap is gentle enough to wash your body, face, hair, or your baby’s diaper area. Different uses will require a different dilution of soap to water. For some basic dilutions and uses, see Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Soaps Dilutions Cheat Sheet.
There are different fragrances you can get to suit your tastes though I would probably stay away from peppermint for cleaning sensitive diaper areas. The cooling effect might be uncomfortable on a baby’s diaper area.
This easy cloth wipes solution smells good, is economical, works really well, and couldn’t be easier to make.
