Easiest Ever Wipe Bits

Wipe bits! Place one in a bottle of water and it turn it into a baby wipes solution. Genius! If you are a cloth diapering mama, you get excited about any topic related to cloth diapers, am I right? Now imagine reading a whole blog dedicated to cloth diapers!? I could spend all day reading Courtney’s blog, Diaper Wrecker. From guides like Options for Diapering a Newborn, or The Best AIO Diapers for 2013, to DIY recipes like her newest post 20 Recipes for Homemade Baby Products.

Have you ever heard of wipe bits?

These little cubes are dissolved in hot water to form a baby wipe solution. Once the solution is made, you can put it in a spray bottle to keep on baby’s changing table, or you can use it to pre-soak cloth wipes (or paper towels if you need disposable wipes).


Whether you already use and love wipe bits or you’re just hearing about them for the first time, I have good news for you. They’re easy and inexpensive to make, and if you make just one batch of them when you’re pregnant, I guarantee you’ll still have some left over after that baby of yours is potty trained. Four little words: MELT AND POUR SOAP.


You’ll Need:
  1. Cut melt and pour soap base into cubes. Measure approximately 12 ounces using a kitchen scale.
  2. Heat soap in microwave using 50% power and stirring every 30-45 seconds until fully melted.
  3. Stir in essential oils – generally only a few drops are needed!
  4. Pour into molds.
  5. Refrigerate about 30 minutes.
  6. Remove from mold; store in an airtight tin or bag.
To Use:
  • Pour 1-2 cups boiling water over one cube.
  • Store solution in a spray bottle, or pour over wipes in plastic container.
