With the news that Wet Wipes - the disposable ones - are causing havoc to the environment (eg here), I thought I should make available a 'recipe' that can be used to make your own reusable wipes. The flannel hankies from our shop will make good wipes.
The picture above shows the original Hankettes (now Eco-Freako) wipes.
This 'recipe' for a safe solution was shared with me by people at Hankettes (now Eco-Freako). Do tell me how you get on with it:
Mix together in a 4L water jug
3500ml Distilled Water
300ml Lavender Water
200ml Witch Hazel Distillate
2 tsp Olive Oil
2 tsp Jojoba Oil
2 tsp All Natural Liquid Soap
1/4 tsp Vitamin E (optional)
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
Mix all ingredients together, shake well and pour some into a small plastic squirt, pump or spray bottle to keep handy when needed.
