    Hi Ladies,
    I was wondering if anyone has any hints about making your own reusable wipes. I have heard some really good ideas about using, muslin, j-cloth, terry toweling etc and to keep a few damp ones in a small tuppa wear for out and about usage, however I have also read somewhere about making great wipes from sweet almond and chamomile oils.
    Does anyone out there know anything about this, how is this done, is it safe, etc? And what are your opinions on good material for making wipes?
    Any advise great appreciated.

    I just cut up an old flannel receiving blanlket for wipes. Some people buy the fancy ones, but I dont think it is necessary. I make my own solution too, I keep it in a mini spray bottle, I used water, a couple drops of baby oil and a squirt of oatmeal creme moisturizer and it works great.

    Thanks Ladies, these are great tips, like the idea of cooled tea and the spray bottle. Think I might invest in a few plush wipes for a out of the house, but also liking the idea of recycling flannels and blankets.
