I can think of nothing to blog while I’m deep in mangling the look of my site on the side. I’m that kind of dedicated sort of person. But I came across this over at Cupie’s and had to share. You too can make your own baby wipes. Think of the money saved. And all you need is a roll of paper towels, baby soap, baby oil, water, plastic container, measuring cup, tablespoon and table saw.
The first thing that must be done is cut the roll of paper towels in half. I’ve tried doing this with serrated knives or hand saws, but I’ve found that they either squash the roll or produce a very ragged, chewed-up end. The best solution I have tried is the table saw. A band saw would probably do as well, but I don’t have one to test on. First, put on your safety glasses, then raise up the blade as high as it will go. Then, with the plastic wrapper still on the roll, cut the roll down the center. You will probably have to spin the roll to cut all the way through.
Haven’t used baby wipes in years but who can resist saving 2 cents a wipe? The lowest price table saw I’ve found so far is at the link, $110. The “table” space is minimal. The next model up is nearly $300, also with minimal table space, and then the next is $315 and the table area looks like it would be able to accomodate three diners. Important to consider with three individuals living in an 800 square foot apartment.
