We're leaving on a road trip and I thought
I'd share a little tip. Something I always make
and take along for us to use whenever we
are traveling in our van:
It's so easy to make your own personal bath
wipes.These are great for road trips,
camping, picnics, or anytime you aren't close
to soap and water and need to freshen up.
I always place a container in the bathroom
at home too.
You'll need a 3qt container that's tall enough,
about 6" to hold 1/2 cut roll of Bounty
with a tight fitting lid
I had two old Rubbermaid #6 containers
and a Tupperware snap-lid container.
A large plastic coffee canister will work too.
Of course you'll need to decorate,
decoupage or paint it.
Cut the paper towel in half using a
sharp (not serrated) knife.
Mix up the simple solution.
Pour the solution over the paper towel
in the container.
Once absorbed you can easily pull out the
Pull the first piece of paper towel from the center.
This will give you tons of wipes for pennies.
No more throwing your money down the toilet
...if you'll excuse the expression!
3 qt. container
1/2 roll Bounty paper towels
2 C warm water
1 T baby oil
1 T alcohol or witch hazel
1 t liquid baby soap (bath wash)
Cut a roll of Bounty in half with a sharp knife
Put the 1/2 roll into a 3qt container.
Combine the solution. Pour over the towels.
Remove the cardboard core.
Pull towels from the center.
Keep tightly covered.
*you can also customize the ingredients to your liking.
These are so handy!
