Washable herbal wipes are a super green and economical way to wash baby’s bottom, plus, it’s a great chemical-free rinse! The diaper service here in Tehachapi suggests that by using natural products like your own diaper wipes and natural herbal baby balms such as Sweet Cheeks Baby Balm and baby powders such as Happy Hiney Herbal Powder that the diapers last longer.
We suggest at least a couple dozen or more if you go longer than 2 days between washings. You can store your wipes in a container and simply toss used ones into the diaper pail and wash with your diapers.I have found that these herbal recipes are best to use with cloth wipes. These will clean baby's bottom or face without any unnecessary chemicals. During outbreaks of rash you will find these useful recipes may come in handy. Try these great baby tested recipes:
