Great responses from Green Cleaning

So I have had some fabulous responses from green cleaning.
Please keep the responses coming and send me those recipes.
I am definitely going to try them
 out.  Vinegar and baking soda
seem to be a common ingredient in a lot of these household
cleaners.  Something we have a lot of.  Thanks to food storage.

Here is a recipe I used many moons ago when Savannah was my only baby.
I will tell you I love this recipe so much and for quite some
time, it was the baby gift I gave before I learned to crochet.
My dear friend Vickie gave me this recipe and I have kept
it with my other loved recipes.  We used it
for @ 3/5ths of our kids.

Diaper Wipes

1 1/2 cup boiling water
1 tbsp. baby wash
3/4 tbsp baby oil
64 sheet Bounty paper towels
(each roll makes 2 batches)
Cut the paper towels in half through the core.
Take the core out and get the center 
towel out to put through the hole in the lid.  Place the paper towels
in your container cut side up.
Now since I made these wipes, it has become more
difficult finding the cylindrical containers.  Like this one 

Combine the water, oil, and wash.  These days
you have so many choices.  Pour over the towels. 
Put the center towel through the hole on the lid.  Let them
sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

You'll need to enlarge the hole on the lid so the towels
can pull out without tearing.

Regular wipes cost about $4 a package.  These
average out to be about $.63 per package if not less!
