Make Your Own Baby Wipes (65/365)

Over the years, Sarah and I have used two different approaches to cut down on the cost of baby wipes. Both of them save significant money over buying wipes at the store.

Make Your Own Wipes (65/365)

Our first approach involved doing almost exactly what’s depicted in the picture above. We simply took a roll of paper towels, cut them in half in both directions (so we had four pieces of the roll of equal size), and removed the roll in the middle. Then, we put one of those “quarter-rolls” into a baby wipe container.

After that was done, we mixed together 2 cups hot water, 2 tablespoons of baby bath soap, and one tablespoon of baby oil. We mixed it slowly so it didn’t cause a lot of bubbling. Then, we just poured this mixture into the baby wipe container.

After that, the paper towels were moist and worked perfectly for cleaning up our children during a diaper change.

While this approach worked really well and was far less expensive than buying baby wipes, we were still filling up our trash can with waste. That’s when we moved on to our second approach.

Sarah picked up a large piece of flannel cloth at the local fabric store, then we cut the flannel into a bunch of four inch squares. These made for perfect baby wipes. We also took an old spray bottle and filled it with a liquid mix identical to the one described above. A couple of sprays on the baby and a wipe with the cloth and we were ready to go.

This second approach worked really well with cloth diapering, as we just tossed the cloth baby wipes in with the cloth diapers and washed them.

This simple move eliminated the need to buy any wipes or paper towels for the purposes of cleaning up our children, but it did have the startup cost of a couple square yards of flannel cloth (about $3). We also found that having a bit of sewing skill helps, as putting an edge on these pieces of cloth greatly increased their lifespan (we’re still using them, actually).

So, how much are these moves actually saving you? A wipe that actually does the job well costs about $0.03 per wipe. During an average diaper change, you’ll use about 2.5 wipes (that’s based on my own experience). Over the two and a half years an average child is in diapers, you’ll change an average of six diapers a day. So, you’ll multiply $0.03 times 2.5 times 6 times 2.5 times 365, giving you a total cost of $411.

A typical roll of paper towels will produce about 160 wipes. You can get a good roll of paper towels for $1.22 a roll. You’re likely spending another $0.05 on the wipe solution per roll. So, your cost per wipe is $1.22 plus $0.05 divided by 160, or a bit over 3/4 of a cent per roll. Over the diapering lifetime of a baby, you’ll have a total cost of $108, saving you $303.

If you go the cloth route, you’re investing about $3 in the initial cloth. You’ll toss the wipes in with your regular laundry, so there’s no upkeep cost. You’ll likely spend about $5 preparing the spray solution over the lifetime (I’m estimating high). Thus, you’ll be saving $403 over the lifetime of the child.

Even if you’re comparing these options to incredibly cheap wipes (that won’t do the job very well), you’re still going to save money with either of these two options.

This post is part of a yearlong series called “365 Ways to Live Cheap (Revisited),” in which I’m revisiting the entries from my book “365 Ways to Live Cheap,” which is available at Amazon and at bookstores everywhere.

    Trent’s a recycler – this is at least the third time he’s posted this technique (and the second time he’s devoted an entire post to it).

    But I guess I shouldn’t expect much more from someone whose personal home page consists of almost nothing but the text: “I’m a writer living in Iowa. I founded TheSimpleDollar.com and watched it grow up and leave home. Now seeking new challenges and adventures.”

    The website has left home, and Trent has left the building.

  2. Baley says:

    Or, if you’re like me, you take the free cheap-o baby wash cloths that you got for your baby shower and wet them with water in the sink prior to each diaper change. Alternatively, you can wet them with water and store a day’s worth in a wipes container already wet. No need for baby soap and oil in the solution, and the wash cloths are already hemmed. Then, each wipe is free!

  3. Angie says:

    At #1 – For reals, huh? Aside from the comments and the, uh, interesting photography, this site’s pretty much done. Glad Trent was able to pay off his mortgage.

  4. Steve says:

    “putting an edge on these pieces of cloth” is only worth it if you value your time at zero. Maybe my wife and I are terrible at sewing, but we basically spent an entire weekend day turning little squares of flannel into wipes. They wipes are great, and it’s a sunk cost at this point, but if I had it to do over I wouldn’t waste so much time on it.

  5. Johanna says:

    I have those same scissors.

  6. David says:

    Funny – I have that same kitchen roll.

  7. Jane says:

    Your wipe numbers are inflated. Does your kid poop six times a day? Perhaps when they are newborn, but not for very long. I rarely use more than two wipes for a diaper change, and that’s the poops. Sometimes I can get away with one. Does everyone else wipe their kids butt every time they change a diaper, even if they just peed? I can’t imagine that is good for their bum. I would say I use about 3 wipes a day per child, and that includes some last minute face wiping when they eat pudding or whatever.

    We used the reusable wipes, but I just never got into it. I use disposable now, and I can get them under 2 cents a wipe at Costco.

    As an aside, wipes are great for a lot of things.
    Spray a little cleaner on your sink and wipe it with a baby wipe. That’s a lot cheaper than a disposable cleaning wipe.

  8. Johanna says:

    @David: I win. (But who has the rock?)

  9. Jane says:

    I’m sorry I just have to come back and say how crazy your saving calculations are – over $300? Really? There’s NO WAY I have spent anywhere close to that on wipes, and I had two kids in diapers for almost two years. I can buy a huge box of wipes at Sam’s for $15 or less that lasts me months and months. Maybe I am sacrificing my child’s hygiene and I don’t even know it, or your “savings” are ridiculous.

    I purchase wipes for a daycare with over forty kids, and I would say they spend about $25 a month on wipes. This is only three days a week, but still. I think you get the point.

    This reminds me of your laundry detergent posts that claim you “save” hundreds of dollars a year by doing it. Considering I only spend around $30 a year on detergent for a family of four, that’s laughable.

  10. David says:

    @Johanna: Elvis. But he has left the building.

  11. Paul says:

    I have discovered tons of household cleaning I can do with Kirkland brand (Costco) baby wipes. I can’t imagine being able to do the same with the homemade wipes Trent has described. I need wipes that hold up to heavy scrubbing.

  12. lurker carl says:

    I’d like to see Trent pick up those scissors and cut that roll of paper towels in half in two directions. Perhaps that’s why Sarah went with flannel squares.

    We used several dozen inexpensive washcloths and warm water. The washcloths were treated like the messy diaper. Lotion was applied directly to baby. Practically free.

  13. Baley says:

    @Jane: he might be overinflating his use of wipes, but maybe they just use a bunch of wipes. I use 2-3 wipes on only the messiest diapers, so most changes it’s only 1, and it would definitely vary per household’s use. In our home we do wipe with every diaper change; we figure it’s better to get the residual urine off of our daughter’s bum than to leave it there. Not everyone shops at Sam’s, either, but after looking at their prices, I’ll be sure to go there if I need to buy wipes again!

  14. jim says:

    If you buy the wipes at Sams Club for $15 for 800 count then thats 1.875¢ each. If you use 1.5 wipes per change then total cost is $153 for 2.5 years. You’d spend $62 with home made. Thats a savings of $91 over 2.5 years or $3/month.

  15. Baley says:

    Or free with home made (see above comment). So, then I’d save $153 for 2.5 years. Still, not massive amts like Trent’s calculations.

  16. Troy says:

    There is a pattern here on the this blog of frugality leading Trent not to using less of what you already have, but of using a different method or a new product entirely.

    As Jim pointed out, if you buy cheaper wipes bulk and use less per change, the magic savings of the “frugalflannel” magically seem to evaporate.

    This is the same principle I pointed out long ago when Trent was opining about buying a high efficiency washing & dryer, or his Prius. All that does is reinforce higher consumption to justify the benefit of higher efficiency. High efficiency has no benefit when the alternative is not being used. Then they are both 100% efficient.

    Common sense says just USE LESS. Don’t buy a HE appliance, just use the one you have less. Don’t go buy a new high mileage car, just drive the one you currently have less. No need for a bunch of CFL’s, just use less lights and turn more off.

    And you don’t need to reinvent wipes or laundry detergent. Just use less…less often.

    Trent has a recurring theme of having to buy or make or create some new frugal alternative for about every event. After reassessing his skewed numbers to justify, it is usually a waste of time or money.

  17. Amanda says:

    The clutter in the background of this picture!

    I thought the point of being an intern was to learn something. How does shooting all of these photos in a weekend teach you anything other than “don’t do that again”?

    Also, part of being an intern is having a mentor. Trent should do some mentoring, have his intern read comments about her pictures, and make her reshoot, one week at a time. Then she’d actually learn something and you could actually see growth!

  18. lurker carl says:

    Remembering Trent’s sloppy pictures of his cheap meals, he isn’t the best choice as a photography mentor.

  19. Kai says:

    I assume he is mentoring her in the business side of becoming a professional photographer – given that he has no photography skills himself.
    She could really use a photography mentor.
    But a mentor shouldn’t be necessary to think about things like – shoot a couple at a time, then get the comments when they post, and use them for help in shooting future ones. There were a number of comments here about composition, white balance, subject ideas, and the like, including lots of good tweaks for her to keep in mind in the future. Since none of them are taken, and we keep seeing photos of bills, photos of bank brochures, photos of websites loaded on laptops and the like as well as generally poor photography, it has become laughable, so there are few constructive comments any more, and a lot of amusement.
    I can’t imagine taking on a project like this and *not* looking for the feedback – and then immediately working on the problems. I don’t fancy myself a professional, but I would be embarrassed to show anyone photos of this quality that I had taken.

  20. Kai says:

    “#16 Troy @ 4:17 pm March 6th, 2012
    There is a pattern here on the this blog of frugality leading Trent not to using less of what you already have, but of using a different method or a new product entirely.”

    I disagree. I remember an epic post from the past in which he talked about using only a square or two of toilet paper. It was a pretty good post, on the topic of reconsidering how much is actually necessary, and suggested using less laundry detergent, and less toilet paper, and less dish detergent and such, and cutting back until you figure out how much is actually necessary for cleanliness, then using that going forward to find significant savings. the toilet paper reference got it piles of comments though, so it should be pretty easy to find.
    I think Trent is very good at justifying the new purchases he wants, but on the ‘talk’ side of things, I have seen a number of posts about using less, and mentioning both sides makes a lot of sense to me.

  21. Angie says:

    Maybe if we all emailed him with the question: Have you checked out? He would actually answer it. Truly, an honest answer would be appreciated. It’s clear he doesn’t read the comments.

  22. Emma says:

    I dread to ask if the same technique is used to save toilet paper? Used toilet paper obstructs drains, sometimes one needs too flush twice.There is always a temptation to help yourself ready available toilet paper and misuse it to quickly remove a lipstick ,blow your nose in a hurry or pat a zit. Teens do it. With reusable , flannel toilet paper you can just wipe yours and throw into the same dirty utility hamper with clothe diapers and wash it every 3 days with Borax made soap, no?

  23. rebecca says:

    Or be really cheap like we did and take two or three really beat up T shirts from my husband’s collection, cut out the seams and cut them up into appropriate shapes and wet with water. Considering that T shirt came from Goodwill already and was used for years while my husb was a carpenter, then used to wipe 3 kids butts for a total of 8 years, I think I can say they were pretty much free.

  24. rebecca says:

    #22 Emma, we do actually still use our cloth wipes in the bathroom. They sit on the back of the toilet near the sink where they can be moistened if desired. We have a small covered trash can just for wipes and I do a load about two times a week. It doesn’t smell. My kids all still prefer them over TP, and its easier for them to use independently too. I also like them for certain times of the month when a little extra clean is needed.

    We still have regular TP of course, but I can’t imagine how much we would go through if we didn’t have cloth wipes also.

  26. Amanda says:

    @ #18 Lurker Carl, I agree. But when he hired her as his compensated intern, he said he would be mentoring her, that she is improving click by click (I don’t see it), and that the photos would relate to the post.

    Hello, CD…

    I wouldn’t choose him as a photography mentor, but he’s put himself in that position. Then again, maybe he’s just mentoring her in the fine art of ignoring all valid, constructive criticism.

  27. Vanessa says:

    @ #22 Emma

    Do a search on this site for “The Happy Medium” which Kai references in comment #20. That will tell you more than you ever wanted to know about Trent’s and his family’s toilet paper usage.

  28. Vanessa says:

    Correction:

    Sorry, the title was “The Happy Minimum”.

  29. Julie says:

    We made these wipes for years for our 3 kids and loved them. We got our recipe from the Tightwad Gazette. Sure, maybe the savings are overstated, and maybe there are free alternatives you can opt for too. The point is, in most situations these wipes end up being cheaper than disposable wipes and they require minimum effort. (We cut the papertowels with a serrated knife.)

    And to #7…since I wipe every time I use the restroom, I did wipe my 3 kids every time I changed their diaper.

  30. Kai says:

    #26, Again, he could be mentoring her in the business side of things without having ever expected to mentor her photography skills. But I wouldn’t be surprised if one of his lessons is “ignore all feedback that isn’t ravingly positive. anyone with anything negative to say is just a hater who should be ignored”. trent doesn’t seem to get constructive criticism, and Brittany definitely hasn’t used any that was posted here.

    Trent has posted before that he does use toilet paper, but yes, some people do use bits of cloth, regularly washed instead of toilet paper.

  31. Kelly says:

    I have yet to see any CONSTRUCTIVE criticism in any comments I’ve read on this site. All I’ve seen is sad raving by soulless internet trolls who have nothing better to do than to fling insults.

    One day, you’ll complain that Trent thinks he is always right. The next day, you’ll complain that Trent is too self-critical.

    One day, you’ll complain that Trent never tries new techniques. The next day, you’ll complain that Trent tries too many new techniques.

    One day, you’ll complain that Trent is far too serious. The next day, you’ll complain that Trent’s life is unrelatably happy.

    There’s nothing constructive in any of your “criticism.” Just sad trolling.

  32. Andrew says:

    Kelly, since you used your valuable time to complain about complainers, calling them trolls—well, pot, meet kettle.

  33. Sandy says:

    Omg…..this blog gets worse by the day! #1 and #3, you guys got it. I think I only visit now to read the comments which are always worthwhile!

  34. SMS says:

    Anyone here ever think maybe new readers haven’t seen this yet? 4 sons – #1 was allergic to baby wipes and I used the flannel washcloths. They don’t clean well and smear. The other 3 boys I used the cheapest disposable ones I could get. Every diaper change was a wash. When soiled it was at least 2 wipes. All 4 were nursed so for those of you that have not had that experience, it is much messier. The first 2 boys were prior to the nice ruffled elastic edges on disposables so that added to the mess factor. I’ve always worked full time and had no time for diaper washing. I preferred to nurse the boys than do laundry~a job of it’s own.

  35. SMS says:

    Also if it doesn’t pertain to you ~ why do you bother reading it? Just to criticize?

  36. Tom says:

    “So, you’ll multiply $0.03 times 2.5 times 6 times 2.5 times 365, giving you a total cost of $411″

    My recent personal research shows the numbers are more like $0.019 times 1.8 times 5 times 2.5 times 365.25
    Or about $165 per child in wipes.

    It’s a good tip though, and probably something many new parents wouldn’t consider. Our local hospital, which has a well-respected neonatal ICU and maternity section, uses paper towels rather than baby wipes.

  37. Jane says:

    @Tom
    Maternity wards and neonatal ICUs use paper towels not for frugality reasons but because wipes can be harsh on brand new bums. In general, I don’t think we consider what frequent use and the chemicals in wipes can do to sensitive skin. That’s one reason why homemade wipes could be a good choice as well.

    @#29 Your reasoning for why you wipe your children – because YOU wipe every time – doesn’t really hold. A woman wipes to get rid of moisture, not because urine has any sort of corrosive or damaging qualities. I have two boys, so perhaps things would be different if I had girls, but a quick air dry (in which we play on the changing table) works just fine. And I imagine a paper towel to dry the area would work even better than a wipe and be much more frugal. I don’t see how wiping a boy for every pee (and thereby getting them more wet) is really necessary.

  38. Gretchen says:

    When a significant portion of your comments are on, frankly, how terrible your blog is and how many readers think you’ve given up, that’s something that should be adressed.

    You know, if you (Trent) read the comments.

  39. Trent Trent says:

    I read the comments, Gretchen.

  40. Carole says:

    For some reason cyber bullies like to pick on this site. I would think they would just read someone else’s that they consider good. But no, they pick on Trent’s. I suspect that there is jealousy that he can sell books while they can’t.

  41. Gretchen says:

    So you read but don’t care?

    That’s worse.

  42. Gretchen says:

    To clarify: by worse I mean just proving how much you’ve checked out.

    Gah. I wish I could stop reading here.

  43. Jen says:

    Trent’s response is cryptic. Does the reader assume that Trent reads them and wants to make changes? OR Does the reader agree with Gretchen that Trent doesn’t care I am really going to do it this time; I am really going to stop reading this blog…really…really…really…It is toxic for so many reasons including the attitude and knowledge of the writer.

  44. Trent Trent says:

    I take the criticisms to heart. The challenge is that many of the criticisms are contradictory. One person says I’m too negative, while another says I’m too positive, for example. It’s hard to take action when there is no clear consensus. Also, many of the criticisms are so vague that there’s nothing to take action *on*.

    There’s also the issue that there are perhaps two dozen critical commenters (I actually get significantly more feedback by email than I do from the comments on the site), compared to the 93,000 people who subscribe and the approximately 500,000 visitors the site receives each month. I use analytics to determine what readers enjoy and what they do not, and a change of 500 readers is more important to me than the negative comments of a couple dozen people. Is a particular post being shared by email (meaning there are clicks coming in from Gmail/Hotmail/etc.)? Am I receiving positive emails on a post? It’s not all about the commenters – they’re one small part in a tidal wave of information and feedback.

  45. Johanna says:

    It’s so patently obvious that Trent only rarely reads the comments, I don’t understand why this is even a question. Trent has shown over and over again that he is a shameless BSer who will say anything, without regard for the truth, if it means he can get a post out of it, or if he thinks it will help him fend off criticism.

  46. Maria says:

    Well said Trent!

  47. Tracy says:

    Heh, ‘lurkers support me in email’

  48. Johanna says:

    “Is a particular post being shared by email (meaning there are clicks coming in from Gmail/Hotmail/etc.)? Am I receiving positive emails on a post? It’s not all about the commenters – they’re one small part in a tidal wave of information and feedback.”

    How about ‘is a particular post factually correct?’ Shouldn’t that also be something to consider?

  49. Andrew says:

    The number of times a post is shared cannot be taken to mean anything about the quality of that post. Could be that people love it; equally possible is that it’s become a viral joke.

    I think what frustrates a lot of commentators–and emailers–is that obvious mistakes are never corrected, bad writing is never cleaned up, and there is seldom any back-and-forth with Trent. Today seems to be a limited exception.Your readers care about this blog, even if it’s only as a vehicle to talk to each other about how much you irritate them. What’s unfortunate is that you have done nothing to indicate that you care as much about your readers.

  50. jim says:

    I don’t know if I come across as a critic or not. I guess I have a tendency towards criticism. I wouldn’t take it as a damnation of this blog but more of a reflection of my critical personality. I am often critical on FMF and GRS as well. Both good blogs.

    I do not personally believe that Trent has ‘checked out’. I think thats an unfair and unwarranted accusation.

    I do think the critical voices here in the comments are a very small minority voice among Trents readers. There are 10-20 critics versus 90,000 subscribers. Get 1000 people together and ask them about anything and 1-2 of them will hate on it. 0.01% of Americans will probably say they hate America, cuddly kittens or sunshine.

    Negative people comment more than happy people. If you read a blog, how likely is someone to speak up and post a comment every day to say how much they like a blog? Yet we have people commenting multiple times a day to say how much they dislike this blog.
    But there are fans and people who dispute the criticsm. We often see people come here and say the negative criticism is unwarranted and too harsh. Over and over. Theres people out there who think the criticism is not cool and defend Trent. They pop up almost daily or at least when the criticism gets too harsh.

    On a side note, I sure hope the photography intern knew in advance that the internet audience can be a very harsh critic. I hope she isn’t taking the negative criticism here too personally. Like I said 0.01% of Americans will probably say they hate anything. There has been some more useful and valid constructive criticism of the photography and that may be good advice. The trick will be ignoring the negativity and seeking valid constructive criticism.

  51. Tom says:

    “Maternity wards and neonatal ICUs use paper towels not for frugality reasons but because wipes can be harsh on brand new bums.”

    Fair point, that may be true, but it wouldn’t surprise me if this local gigantor corporate hospital insisted on using the Kimberly-Clark generic quality paper towels because they were just as effective as more expensive wipes.

    Wow a Trent comment!

  52. Steve says:

    I know of at least one issue on which Trent has changed his position. He used to beat the Roth IRA drum pretty hard. For example, he almost exclusively recommended a Roth IRA for anyone in the Reader Mailbag that asked if they should contribute to a Roth IRA or a 401(k), regardless of their circumstances. He has since modified his position to that of tax diversification – some in Roth accounts, some in tax deferred accounts, and even some in regular taxable accounts. I don’t know what prompted that change, but it’s a (nearly) unarguable improvement.

  53. David says:

    Well, that’s economics. The questions are the same every year, but the answers are different.

  54. Kai says:

    “#50 jim @ 12:25 pm March 7th, 2012

The trick will be ignoring the negativity and seeking valid constructive criticism.”

    The problem is that with no seeking of the constructive criticism, and no attempt to do anything about it, the photography intern has become a joke. The first few photos received a lot of comments about ways to make some adjustments to get better photos, and suggestions for processing, and comments on composition. The majority were constructive. But since the photos were obviously all taken quickly, and no effort has since been made to use those constructive comments, it has just become sadly funny.
    Heck, even if she didn’t want to retake her photos of bank brochures, websites, and stacks of bills, she could make many of them look immensely better by opening up any processing program and hitting ‘auto white balance’. But she hasn’t. So, like Trent’s tendency to never correct even factual errors, it has just become a running joke.

    Trent, not all negativity is just hatorade. the reasons for the really negative and the really dismissive comments are the fact that people never expect you to read them. When you never do anything based on the comments (like correct factual errors, or major layout issues), it’s pretty reasonable to assume that you don’t read them. And popping up on rare occasions to announce that you do read the comments, but any negativity is just ignorable haters who are outweighed by your millions of readers just makes you sound inauthentic.
    If you read the comments, why were there weeks of comments on the font issue before it got fixed after a facebook comment? Why are comments banished to moderation hell for weeks at a time without any particular reason? Why do you never correct errors? No-one would hold the odd error against you. Most blogs I read occasionally post “hey, sorry, I made a mistake on that last week. thanks to the commenter for pointing it out – i’ve learned something new!”. But you repeat incorrect facts that have been mentioned before.
    So yes, people start to see it as a car crash. Tons of viewers, but maybe not for the reasons you’d seek.

  55. Johanna says:

    @Steve #52: I agree that it’s an improvement. But the reasoning he’s giving is still incorrect.

  56. Kai says:

    On this photo, for example, someone posted a comment mentioning that the stuff in the background was distracting. that’s a very constructive comment. That’s something a new photographer could consider. I remember running into that myself – focusing so much on a specific object that I didn’t realize that there was some distracting background object I had failed to frame. Remembering to check the edges and the background was a big learning step for me, and something I work on paying attention to after that. That’s something that could really help her out down the line.
    There were some great comments as well on the poor white balance in a few photos, with suggestions on how to fix it. But we never saw any improvement on that, and I doubt we’ll see any improvement on this or any other metric by the end of the year.
    I think this could have been a really great opportunity for her to get some practice and feedback, but given what we’ve seen, I really doubt anyone will be seeing her shots and looking to hire her as a professional.

  57. jim says:

    Kai, Yes there is valid constructive criticism. I hope that Brittany is learning from it. My point was more to say that I hope she has a thick skin about the more negative stuff and is able to ignore that while hopefully learning something from the constructive criticism.
    It does appear the photos were shot in advance which makes it harder for her to learn from the advice here, but maybe she can use the input for her next batch of photos.
    As I said the internet can be a harsh critic in general and people are effectively declaring her a failure. This may be her first attempt at professional photography and such a reception could be hard for someone who’s not used to the way people can be on the internet or who is more sensitive to criticism.

  58. Brandon says:

    “During an average diaper change, you’ll use about 2.5 wipes (that’s based on my own experience). ”

    You’re using too many wipes Trent! Fold it over itself again and again until every square inch is used!

    Here is an easy way to remember how many wipes you should be using. One wipe for #1, Two wipes for #2.

    I probably use 3 wipes during a change once a week or so, and 4+ wipes maybe once every month or two when disaster strikes. That being said, there are plenty of times I get away with just one wipe for #2 if it is “solid”.
