I have been hanging out on Pinterest a lot more lately. So addicting but it’s a good addiction! I have been finding so many fun things that I want to try. This is my first ‘project.’
I love love love these! DIY Make Up Remover Wipes. Can also use for hand wipes or baby wipes too. I first found the idea on Bargain Hound’s Pinterest page. Love finding things like these that are frugal but also a better solution for my sensitive skin. I’ve been buying the Walmart brand of make up remover wipes and while they do work and they’re cheaper than brand name, they still bother my eyes. Whatever else is in them, tends to make my eyes burn a bit.
These DIY wipes are perfect because I just used water and Baby Wash (the Walmart brand so it saved me even more money).
Here’s what I used to make these:
1 Roll of Viva paper towel (cut to size of container)
2 T Baby Wash
2 C Water
1 Air tight container
First cut the paper towel roll so that it’s about the size of your container. I cut about 1/3. (I used Viva because I love how soft and strong it is but you could use your favorite brand). Mix baby wash and water in the container. I didn’t add anything else to it so that I could keep it very gentle but you can add 2 T coconut oil for moisturization benefits. Add the paper towel section to the container and seal. Turn the container upside down until all liquid is absorbed. After about 5 minutes or so the liquid will be absorbed and you’ll be able to pull out the cardboard from the roll. Pull the first sheet up from the middle and they’re ready to use. Keep lip on when not in use so they don’t dry up.
That’s it. You have made perfect make up remover, baby or hand wipes.
