Dried out diaper wipes are a pain because they don't do their designated job as well as wet ones, and throwing them out can feel like tossing money in the trash. In most cases, evaporation is the culprit and adding a little distilled water to the package to moisten the wipes is enough to restore them back to usefulness. In some cases though, those wipes need a little extra boost to once again get your baby clean and fresh.

Step 1

Measure 2 cups of distilled water and pour it into a mixing bowl. Add 1/4 cup of your favorite baby shampoo or baby wash. Add 1/4 cup of baby oil. If your shampoo is unscented, add a few drops of lavender oil, if desired.

Step 2

Stir the mixture together slowly with the spoon. You do not want to create bubbles by mixing too hard.

Step 3

Slowly pour 1/4 of the solution over your dried baby wipes. Close the baby wipe lid and turn it upside down. Rotate the container a few times to allow the mixture to soak into the wipes. Repeat this process if the wipes are not yet completely moist.
