Homemade Wipes



  • 1 roll of heavy duty paper towels (plain white)
  • Container, plastic shoe box, coffee container, etc.
  • 1 3/4 cups boiled water (or distilled)-cooled but still warm – (can just use regular water if you use them in less than a week)
  • 1 Tablespoon of pure aloe vera- check the ingredients
  • 1 Tablespoon of pure Witch Hazel Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons of Liquid Castille Soap
  • 2 capsules of Vitamin E (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Olive or Almond Oil
  • Essential Oils of choice (I use organic lavender and vitamin oil–can purchase from Whole Foods)


  1. Cut the roll of paper towels in half using a sharp knife
  2. In bowl or quart size jar mix the water, aloe, witch hazel, castille soap, Vitamin E and oil and stir.
  3. Add essential oils if desired and stir.
  4. Pour over paper towels in container and let absorb- this takes about 5-10 minutes. (Tip: only saturate it and once the paper towels are completely saturated, stop pouring. Otherwise the wipes are too wet.)
  5. Flip the container over to make sure wipes are well soaked.
  6. Use as you would regular wipes
