I use sheepish grins wipe cubes. I make up a solution in an old P*mpers box and add the wipes. I usually change the solution after 2 days. if we're out and about I take dry wipes and a bottle of tea tree and lavender free Northern Essence wipes solution.

Found a use for my top & tail bowl - I mean, what are they used for normally??? - I put the wipes in one side and some water with a tiny squirt of baby bath in the other.

According to my MW, I was supposed to put water in both sides and use one side for the top and one side for the tail. Too much faffing around, so didn't get used until I bought cloth wipes!

Never bought one either as I couldn't see the point of it, also something to do with washing faces before they go in normal bath water :roll:

Anyway my solution is 1 camomille tea bag with a teaspoon of salt, all put into a lift and lock tupperware, lasts about 3 days or until the wipes soaking in it run out. I also use dove soap on the first wipe to clean his bum, then 2 wet one to wash soap off.

When I tried honey I think it made everything a whole load worse as it just grew more fungal and I am not convinced months on it has gone, but it could have done.
