Homemade Baby Wipes

This is one of those things I probably wouldn't do. Mostly because I STOCKPILED wipes long before Atlas was born and have yet to need to buy more. I think we have made it through 1/5th of the wipes I bought... maybe? He turns 1 on Friday ::gasp::

Homemade Baby Wipes
1 roll of Bounty (or another thick, quality brand) paper towels (You can also use those really cheap and thin washrags ... the ones you can get in a pack of 12 for $3 at Walmart or Target... then reuse them and save the money you would be spending on paper towels... which ARE NOT CHEAP!)
2-1/4 cups of water
2 Tbsp. baby bath or shampoo
1 Tbsp. baby oil

1. Cut the roll of towels in half (an electric knife works well) and place in a container. You can also separate the towels into a neat pile that will be ready to use.
2. Mix all liquid ingredients together and pour over top of the towels.
3. Let the liquid absorb into the towels. When ready to use, remove the
cardboard center (if you left it in) and pull the towels from the middle.
