Making Foaming Wipes Solution? How To?

Postby zoeyboo » Tue Sep 14, 2010 8:01 am

Does anyone make up a solution for their wipes that would be like the foaming solutions?

I have always used Northern Essences & we get on really well with it, but it's getting hard to find it now in the UK and shipping direct from NE is extortionate! I am going to try the Sheepish Grins solution but it would be great if anyone had a 'recipe' they use to make their own. I have a few of the large foaming bottles I can use as well as a couple of tiny ones...

When I go back to work I was thinking it would be useful to make up a couple of big bottles, one for my Mum and one for the Childminder to use when Rufus is with them, I intend to have a couple of separate bags pre-packed for each of them to cut down on swapping & changing stuff around, but I expect they will use far more than they need so don't want to spend out £8 a bottle each for them if it won't last (at home mine lasts over 2 months).

So any recipes you'd like to share would be much appreciated!

They have a pump action top, you press it down & foam comes out, I imagine quite similar to Kandoo bottles...

I was going to use either my Burt's Bees or I have 2 bottles of NE Concentrate Shampoo/Body Wash that I thought I could also use ... hmmm, fancy getting some Apricot or Citrus Oil to add, where is the best/cheapest place for this I wonder?

Thanks Stace!

I don't know of anywhere other than online for the 2 makes I use as they are from WAHMs not mass produced... perhaps you could look in the supermarket for a product that you could use yourself that has this type of bottle? Or see if you can buy empty foaming bottles on eBay or somewhere?
