DIY Cloth Diaper Safe Wipe Solution

Sharing is caring!

Here’s an easy DIY Cloth Diaper Safe Wipe Solution that is super easy to make and perfect to use on your little one. You’ll also save tons of money using it.

I’ve always called Cloth diapers the intro to a more eco friendly life style. Cloth diapering can be something that is so different to so many people. However, many still use regular wipes out of “convenience”. However, making your own wipes doesn’t have to be impossible or hard. Here’s a fantastic DIY Cloth Diaper Safe Wipe Solution that only needs 2 items. This recipe will give you the perfect wipe solution to help clean your little one’s bum on the go.

Once you start using a home made version of the wipes you buy at the store, you won’t want to use anything else. Not just because of the better quality in product, but the ease and affordability in the long run.

My recipe is simple and a bit different than most because I count on one fantastic product everyone should own in their home Castile soap.Many of the recipes ask for unscented but I simplify it with the Tea Tree version you can find here.

It’s important I believe to include Tea Tree because it’s an natural antibacterial.



To make the Solution you need:
Spray Bottle

Castile Soap

If you with unscented you can always add essential oils. I do think it’s important to add Tea Tree because of it’s properties.

Very Hot Water

To assemble simply get a cup to a cup and a half (depending on size of spray bottle) and add hot water. Hottest you can use in the spray bottle. Then add 1 Tablespoon of Castile soap. Like I said you can include essential oils to add a nice scent like Lavender or Tea Tree.




Shake and you’re good to go! This is super easy to make and an essential for any changing table,diaper bag or on the go! A bottle of Castile soap will run you from $8-$11 with the amount you use this is a very financially savvy product.

Add some fun and soft Cloth Wipes and you’re good to go!

    I just bought wipe solution for the first time in 3 1/2 years of cloth diapering, felt I needed something more than water for the 3 1/2 year old. I’d like to get around to making some at some point, though.

    This is such a great idea. Thank you so much for sharing. We love Dr. Bronner’s and have been throwing around the idea of using cloth wipes!

    I make a very similar solution. I use organic Dr. bonners hemp baby castille, I boil some water with chamomile tea bags then add that water to the bottle, the soap and tea tree oil with a little coconut oil in there too.

    I’ve started making a stash of cloth wipes but haven’t decided on a solution or if I should store them wet or dry yet. Thanks for your ideas!

    I’ve seen preparations that also include an oil, like olive or coconut, to make the solution more moisturizing. How does this compare in keeping baby’s tush nice and soft, and irritation-free?

    I used to make our own wipes solution (with a little bit of Little Twig baby wash, 2 or 3 drops of tea tree oil, and water) and pour it over paper towels… because the hubby didn’t think we could use cloth wipes easily (even though we’ve cloth diapered since the oldest was 4 months old). When the 2nd kiddo was born, I started folding cloth wipes in a container and using the same solution to pour over them. After a few diaper changes, the hubs was on board too. I guess I should have just changed that out sooner…. didn’t realize he’d be so easy to convince! They are so easy to toss in with the diapers and I really think they clean better! I’ve never thought about trying Dr. Bronners with the wipes solution… bet it smells great!!

    I will be using baby bits. But once I’m done with that, I will have to try your cloth wipe solution recipe.
