3-1 This is for the Makers out there that made some kids. Homemade baby wipes. There are many places on the web where you can get recipes for homemade baby wipes on the web. This, however, may be the only one which suggests making them with large shop tools. I think it adds an interesting element of excitement and danger to an otherwise mundane task. Link.

    Be sure to use high quality paper towels that will not fall apart after being moist for some time. As a father of two, I would submit that the worst case would be a torn wipe at a crucial moment.

    The tablesaw is a nice gimmick, but unneeded…an electric carving knife (long favoured by foam-rubber sculptors) is the *business* for chopping the rolls.

    I agree on the saw being a little overboard. If you cannot use your kitchen knife you might need to get them sharpened (and I recommend professionally). I use my 12″ chef knife with about three cuts I’m through with no rips or ragged cuts. If you have problems cutting through paper towels think of the extra effor you putting into cutting chicken, pork, veggies, etc…

    Speaking as someone who has actually made these before: they are nice, especially if your child has sensitive skin… no alcohols. BUT, they are not always cheaper… and, what convinced my wife and I, they started to mold before we used them all up. You would need to use them all up (the whole half roll) in less than a few days. For us, store bought wins.

  5. Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at
    a reasonable price? Cheers, I appreciate it!
