Home-Made Baby Wipes

At the Panda Residence, we are constantly trying to cut our daily costs through the guise of trying to go green. Case in point: baby wipes. We go through at least 10 a day, usually closer to 15, depending on how many poops we’re blessed with. If you figure that one package of about 70 costs about $3, I’m spending $3-6 dollars per week on wipes. That’s about $20 per month, evened out. Extrapolate out… $240 per year. Zoinks! For less than the cost of a large box of wipes (about $15), we’ve made some home-made wipes and wipes sauce to use at home (we’ll probably stick with disposables while we’re out and about… I hate traveling with Biohazards on deck).
