Easy Homemade Baby Wipes!

Alright time for a confession:  I am a huge fan of the Duggar family.  I watch with awe as this momma raises 19 kids since I feel like I'm struggling to raise one baby.  I like them so much that I actually read their first book recently and found this recipe for homemade baby wipes. 
I am been REALLY trying to budget better lately and have even started couponing again (ugh-I hate it, but I feel like I need to do it). 
I have been paying a small fortune for baby wipes at Sam's Club, so I think this is a cheaper option AND I had almost all of the supplies at home.
Supplies Needed:
*2 Cups Water (I forgot to include that in the picture, but you know what water looks like, right?)
*1 Tablespoon Rubbing Alcohol
*2 Tablespoons Baby Oil (I used Mineral Oil instead of Baby Oil because I didn't want them to be scented. P.S. You can also use Canola Oil or Vegetable Oil, which is completely safe on skin)
*washed out Ice Cream Galloon Bucket (yum...I went with the Neopolitan, but the flavor is up to you)
*roll of Bounty paper towels (Bounty works best, I'm told)

Optional: 1 Tablespoon Infant bubblebath (I didn't include this 'cause I prefer unscented)

Cut the roll of paper towels in half- if you have an electric knife it works great.  I don't, so I sweated and put in some elbow grease and may have developed tennis elbow to cut through this roll with a dull steak knife.  This was the hardest part.

Combine the water, alcohol, and oil in a bowl

 Place the roll in the bucket.  (Ok, this picture is NOT accurate.  You should put it in vertically so the roll is standing up because when you pull the wipes out, you'll want to start with the towel in the middle of the roll)

Pour liquid over paper towels and let sit for 30 minutes.  Then, pull the roll out of the paper towels.

Cut an "x" slit in the lid and pull the wipe from the middle of the roll out first. 
I found these to be super easy to make and they work great!
  Thank you, Michelle Duggar!
