15 DIY Reusable Disposables

By Just Heather |

Making your own household items instead of using common disposable items is a great way to reduce expenses and your impact on the environment.

Baby Wipes

When I cloth-diapered my daughter, my husband and I also made the decision to use cloth baby wipes. These thin baby washcloths with a vinegar solution are perfect.

Of course, this would all be a lot easier if I knew how to sew. (Dear Mom, Any of these would make awesome Christmas gifts. Love, Me)

    I need to make reuseable “swiffers” asap, and I love the snapping paper towel idea. Thanks for including my cloth wipes, I promise, they’re no sew :)

    Vinegar on baby wipes? Vinegar is a skin irritant. I would not get it NEAR the delicate skin of a baby. Who actually has done this?

      For our girls, we used a baby shampoo, diluted with water, over the wash cloths. I’ve never heard of vinegar being a skin irritant, though. I use it for practically everything all over the house, including as a fabric softener and shampoo rinse.
