A friend of mine shared this with me when my daughter was born. They work great! Just be sure to use Bounty paper towels. The cheaper ones do not work well at all. This really saves money, and I think they work better than the wet wipes.

Subject: Make you own wet wipes
A VERY wise list member posted this last summer (she got it from a local
paper). Has anyone tried it yet?
"Here's how I make my own baby wipes: Cut a roll of paper towels in half; I
recommend Bounty plain white. You will have what looks like two thick rolls
of toilet paper. Place one roll of paper towels in a 2 or 3 quart
Rubbermaid cylinder container. Pour a mixture of 2 1/2 cups boiled water, 2
tablespoons baby oil, and 1 tablespoon baby wash (like Johnson's) down the
core of the towels. Wait a few minutes, then pull out the cardboard core.
Within a hour the paper will have absorbed the liquid. The wipe will spiral
out from center. For portable use in the diaper bag, I use a leftover blue
plastic wet wipe container and refill with my homemade one. L. White"
I feel your pain.... I can not imagine an art room with out water --
especially with the quality of work Bunki does with her middlers We will
all help her count down the days till she gets her room back. I just
answered a survey (via phone tonight)... I had to rate my room and
facilities a perfect 10 -- it is wonderful! You folks help me count my
When I had a room with out water (long ago) -- I used small buckets at each
table -- but then again - I had a place just down the hall to empty.
