Here is the solution I use to moisten reusable cloth baby wipes.

Note, I did some web research into different recipes and many seemed very complicated for such a simple matter.  So I made up my own blend. It's very easy.


Melrose Organic Castille Liquid Soap
Organic Camomile Tea Bags
Distilled Water


I boil about 2 cups of distilled water and put in a bowl with the organic camomile tea bag and let cool.  Then I apply a small squirt of castille liquid soap. I pour into the spray bottle dedicated to Juan's wipes. If necessarily, I fill the spray bottle with more distilled water. Easy.

That solution lasts about a week or so. 

However, I would like to point out that lately I've just been wetting the wipes with water. Nothing else just pure simple water. While Juan is on breastmilk, I think that is all that's necessary. Probably when he starts eating solids and those pooey nappies take on a whole new meaning I will go back to this solution.

Note: The castile soap is actually a bit harsh when I used it to wash my hands on a regular basis, so that's why I only use a very small amount diluted in the tea and water. The castille soap contains: purified water, organic olive oil, organic flaxseed oil, organic palm olein (Columbia), organic sunflower oil and glycerine.
