Money saver right here :) Make your own baby wipes! Use 1/2 roll paper towel, 2-1/4 cup water, 2 Tbsp baby wash, and 1 Tbsp baby oil. That's it! ~Juanita
Homemade Baby Wipes What you need: a round plastic container with a tight-fitting lid, thick, strong roll of white paper towels, Sharp, serrated knife to cut paper towel roll in half, 2 cups water that has been boiled and cooled to room temperature, 2 Tbsp. baby shampoo or baby wash, 1 Tbsp. baby oil What to do: First, cut your paper towel roll in half and remove the inner cardboard tube. Then mix your liquid ingredients in container and place one of the paper towel halves inside, cut side down (save the other half for the next time you need to make wipes). Place the cover on the container and turn the container upside down. Keep it upside down until the paper towels are soaked through. Open the container. Pull the cardboard center out of the paper towels and "start" your roll by pulling a towel from the center of the roll
I have done this since my daughter was born except I leave out the baby oil and use coconut oil but she never gets rashes and is now 3.
I love these! Cold and creamy and just the right crunch with the cookie topping. Easy to make and so delicious!

It's that time of year were people want to wear sandals/flip flops. Here are some home remedies to keep the feet looking and smelling good.
Treating cracked heels and blackened feet
Put shaving cream on your feet.
In a bucket or sink, combine equal parts warm water and Listerine.
Soak a small hand towel in the solution of water and Listerine.
While the shaving cream is still on your feet wrap the wet hand towel around your feet and let it sit for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, use the towel to rub your feet. Some of the calloused and discolored skin will rub off.
Apply a healthy amount of lotion to your feet.
After your foot bath, is it a good idea to spend at least 5 minutes drying your feet. You want to make sure you do not put your socks and shoes on with your feet
still wet or damp (this can cause bacteria growth and infection). Use a towel to pat your feet dry and be sure to get in between the toes.
Also, give your feet a break from sandals (don't wear them every day) and apply lotion to your heels nightly to reduce cracking
Treating sore or smelly feet
Soak your feet in 1 gallon of warm water and 1 cap-full of bleach. This takes the soreness out of your feet and kills bacteria that cause the smelly feet.
You can only use this method three times a week.
In general, please pay attention to your feet. It is very easy to get a foot infection due to the fact that they get little air, they sweat, and they are in limited space in a shoe to move.
