This Tuesday’s Tip is brought to you by Katie from Kroger Krazy

I am a wipe-obsessed person. Window wipes, furniture wipes, bathroom disinfectant wipes, baby wipes, flushable wipes, facial wipes…if it ends in “wipe”, I am all over it! It’s just so easy to pull out a wipe and get the job done! In turn, this wipe obsession has made me quite lazy. What? Splash water on my face, open the cleanser, scrub face, rinse, dab with towel. No, no, no…far too much work. I will never go back. The problem then becomes that wipes can be expensive…especially facial wipes. I just ran out of my last package and as I was searching for coupons – DING DING DING (enter thought bubble) – I can totally make these! So I did some research, tried a few concoctions and I finally came up with something that works great!

Gather these things:

  • Paper Towels
    (I use Viva because they are super thick and strong)
  • 2 TBS Johnson’s Head to Toe Baby Wash
    (or your favorite facial cleanser)
  • 2 TBS Coconut Oil
    (Vitacost sells this at a great price, plus get a $10/$30 credit at signup!)
  • 1 TBS Witch Hazel
    (optional, this is used as a toner/astringent)
  • 1 C Water
  • Container with lid
    (I used an old flushable wipes container)

:: STEP 1

Measure Coconut Oil into a microwavable dish and heat for 30-45 seconds until melted. Pour into container.

:: STEP 2

Measure and add Water, Baby Wash or Cleanser, and Witch Hazel to container. Mix around a bit to incorporate everything.

:: STEP 3

Cut your paper towel roll in half using a butcher knife (serrated knife will make a mess).

:: STEP 4

Unroll paper towels and fold them back and forth to make them easier to pull out.

:: STEP 5

CAREFULLY place the folded paper towels in container and push down to soak up all the liquid. Keep lid closed so they stay moist. BOOM: Facial wipes!!

:: Alternate Ending

After Step 3 above, instead of unrolling the paper towels you could also pull out the center cardboard tube and pull the wipes from the center of the roll. The place in a round container with a lid.

Note: There are many different ingredients you can use for these, depending on your preference, skin type, etc. I used Johnson’s Baby Wash because I had a ton of it in my stockpile, it is gentle and the only kind of facial cleansers I had on hand were too creamy/mousse-y (that’s a word!) or had scrubbing beads. I think next time I will try it with an actual facial cleanser that is clear.
