Homemade Baby Wipes

Homemade Baby Wipes

This one's specifically for my friend Mike, a woodworking hobbyist and expectant father. What can beat the satisfaction of making your own babywipes using paper towels, baby soap and oil, and of course the table saw!

"Now, a box of 384 premade wipes costs around $10. A bulk package of 8 paper towel rolls costs around $5, and makes somewhere around 900 wipes. So the former runs around 2.6 cents per wipe, while the latter is about 0.6 cents per wipe. Plus you have the intangibles, like a personal feeling of accomplishment and the fact that you get to use the table saw."
Of course P&G probably makes these anyway, so it's moot.
