Craigslist Armoire & Re-usable Baby Wipes

I found this Armoire on Craigslist the other day and ended up buying it. I am using it to store Athan's cloth diapers and diapering items. It is solid wood and looks great in our yellow room! I really love the shelving/cubbies behind the doors in the middle.

I have been making homemade wipe solution and cut up two old baby blankets to use for wipes.  I wash these along with Athan's diapers in the washer.  I got the re-usable wipe idea from Farrah's Blog. If you haven't checked out her blog, it is awesome!  I have changed some of the ingredients slightly (I use an EO of Tangerine, Chamomile and Lavender).

1/2 cup organic olive oil
1/2 cup Hugo Naturals Tear-Free Shampoo and Baby Wash Chamomile and Vanilla
15 drops of *Mother & Child Essential Oil (contains Chamomile, Lavender, Tangerine and Coconut Oil)

Put in a bottle that can be shaken & shake it! Then I remove the top and put a little less than 1 tablespoon of the mixture in  an old wipe container (I used my Swaddlers container).  Next, I pour about 2 1/2 cups of filtered water in my Swaddlers container and swish it around.  To use it, I soak 2-3 pieces of cut up blanket and ring out. Use like regular wipes but put in the diaper pail after use.  The concentrated olive oil, shampoo and EO stays under the sink with a top on it until I need to replenish.

* I purchased this at a local store called Aromatones. They specialize in high quality essential oils and essential oil combinations.
