We like to use cloth wipes around here. So I need something wet to go with them.
I know some people use plain water. However, our changing table is nowhere near the sink and I don’t want to leave them sitting wet. I had read sometimes they start to smell like mildew for some people. I know not everyone has that problem, but I just didn’t want to bother. That means we needed a spray.
When my daughter was born we used Thirsties Booty Luster. I really liked it too. Never had any problems with it. Unfortunately, as my daughter got older we started to go through more and more of it. And since it isn’t a concentrate it was getting pricey.
I visited one of my favorite online retailers, Sweetbottoms Baby, to see what was available. I like to read the reviews to see what other Moms say. What did I find? LuSa Baby Wipe Juice! It caught my attention because I could make 2 GALLONS of the stuff for $14.99. I also liked to see the reviews that said things like: “Definitely recommend!” or “I absolutely love this product!” and multiple comments of “lasts forever”! How could I not at least try it?
All you need to do is mix 1-3 teaspoons of the LuSa Baby Wipe juice with 1-cup water and shake. I actually just saved the spray bottle from the Thirsties Booty Luster (recycling is good!) and added the Baby Wipe Juice instead. This has a very light, clean fresh smell. It’s not overpowering, but if you like no scent at all, this isn’t for you.
There are a couple of things I love about this product. First, it is made in the USA (which means a lot to us). Second, it contains no synthetic fragrances or preservatives. Third, did I mention you can make 2 GALLONS with just an 8 oz bottle of Baby Wipes Juice?
Here is what it is made of: Witch hazel distillate, *olive oil, *avocado oil, *aloe vera juice, *calendula flowers, *lavender flowers, polysorbate-20 (an olive oil and sugar based emulsifier), *chamomile flowers, essential oil blend (lavender, patchouli, peru balsam, and chamomile), tocopherol (vitamin e); grapefruit seed extract, citric acid, and silver citrate (natural preservatives). *certified organic ingredient.
My daughter has somewhat sensitive skin. I never know what will irritate it. We haven’t had one problem with this wipes solution causing any sensitivity. It also seems to do a great job in aiding in hiney cleanups and helps keep my daughters bottom smooth and rash free.
I have had the bottle for three months now and feel like we have barely used any of this. I have to agree with the reviews I had seen online; I think this bottle of LuSa Baby Wipe Juice just might last forever. Which is makes this a VERY cost effective product!
