Summer has finally arrived!And Baby Wipes are known (beside its common use...) to rehydrate,wipe up hands and faces&refresh our skin on those hard heat days...
How many of you are fond of them?Well,iam but,wait....did you know that harmful chemicals are found in  most commercial baby wipes??? (yes,the baby ones...)
AND did you know that you can do your own baby wipes??yes!And they are free of those chemicals,they are far softer and it  will also save you a ton!!You can choose do it  with a soft paper roll or with reusables cloth/Fabric (made of Flannel,Cotton,Mixed fabric etc..,this ones produce far less solid waste then the paper ones)
