Homemade Baby Wipes

This is the best moneysaver-idea I’ve come across in a while!  I’m so excited how easy these are to make.  It’s very cost-effective and you’ll save money because you won’t have to buy anymore of those expensive wipes at the store.

Homemade Baby Wipes

You’ll need:

1 – roll Bounty Select-A-Size paper towels

1-1/2 Tablespoons baby bath

1 Tablespoon baby oil

1 Tablespoon baby lotion

2 – cups water

Using a sharp non-serrated knife, cut the roll in half.  Save the other half of your paper towels for the next time you make wipes.

In a large container: whisk all the ingredients to combine.

Place you paper towels into the container and turn the container upside down until the paper towels are soaked through.

Once soaked through, remove the cardboard center out of the paper towels.

Viola!  You have baby wipes!

Be sure to put you lid back on so they will not dry out.

Chicken Broth Gravy

This may look like regular white gravy.  But, it’s actually homemade chicken gravy.  I made some chicken and dressing today and I was out of canned chicken gravy.  *gasp canned chicken gravy*  who eats that stuff.  (I do, sometimes) hee.  Anyway, I had to come up with some kind of gravy for my chicken & dressing ’cause I did not want to run to the store.

Recipe adapted from:  MyRecipes.

It’s really good when you’re in a pinch!

Chicken Broth Gravy


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour  (I used self-rising) it’s all I had
  • 1 (10 1/2-ounce) can chicken broth, undiluted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • Black Pepper, to taste


  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk in flour, and cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Whisk in broth and remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat, whisking often, 10 to 15 minutes or until mixture thickens.
