Benefits of homemade wipes
- They are more cost effective than store bought wipes. More wipes for your buck is a great thing because messes are never ending. You can literally make hundreds of homemade wipes for pennies. When you substitute old tee shirts, towels, cleaning rags for consumable paper products, your money goes even farther!
- You know exactly what ingredients are in the wipes. This is especially important for wipes used on your skin or on the skin of your children. You know that no toxic ingredients were added to your wipes to extend shelf life because you made them yourself.
- The size and number of the homemade wet wipes can be customized based on your need, whether you are making homemade disinfecting wipes, personal cleansing wipes, or natural baby wipes.
- The softness and durability of your wipes are based on your preference. You can make them soft and cloth like, yet still disposable, by using Viva for example. Your cleaning cloths can be made with soft microfiber instead of old towels. We base our wipes on what we plan to use them to clean.
