Reusable Wipes




I have previously made disposable wipes using a similar method and paper towel but our girls are out of nappies and we now only use these wipes for their hands / faces which has prompted me to make this reusable version. These are also handy to spot clean surfaces in your kitchen and around the house.


  • 1 tbsp castile soap
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar (or witch hazel)
  • 1 1/4 cup of filtered water (use more or less depending on how many cloths you are soaking)
  • storage jar
  • wash cloths / squares of fabric

~ optional ~
a few drops of essential oil (I love using Tea Tree)

✖️ Wipe out the inside of the jar you are using to store these wipes with a cloth dampened with white vinegar.
✖️ In a jug, combine the castile soap, witch hazel, filtered water and essential oil (if using). Stir well to evenly combine.
✖️ Fold the wash cloths and place them in the bottom of your storage jar.
✖️ Pour the mixture over the cloths in your jar.
✖️ Set the jar aside for 30 minutes to allow the cloths to soak up the liquid.

Storage tips: store out of direct sunlight - the condensation can cause your container to sweat and produce mould.

Like with any DIY that you make which is free from chemicals and preservatives, it doesn’t last as long as the store bought version... so you can make a smaller batch (& refill it more often) or follow my tips 🤗
