DIY Facial Towelettes

I recently discovered this incredibly easy DIY Facial Towelettes idea on WhiteHouseBlackShutters and knew I had to try it for myself (and, of course, share it with you all!). The instructions below are adapted from hers, but I added my own flair to it with some tips of my own! You can use them for anything: as baby wipes, makeup remover wipes, easy cleanup wipes, or whatever you please. They are super economical and very handy!

I hope you all will try this and enjoy!

DIY Facial Towelettes

All you need is: 


  •  4 Cups Water
  • 1 Paper Towel Roll – Biodegradable one if you plan on flushing these!
  • Sulfate Free Soap (1 Pump or a Small Squirt)
  • 2 Round or Square Tupperwares
  • Essential Oils or Hydrosol of your choice (Optional)

First, you cut your paper towel roll in half.

I used a knife, but if you have durable scissors, you can probably use scissors if you like.

Put your two halves of the paper towel rolls to the side.

Then, mix your 4 cups of water with either a hydrosol of your choice (lavender, tea tree or sage are nice ones!), 5-10 drops of essential oil or perhaps some kind of tea, if you wish.

Though, if you decide to use a tea, your wipes may not last as long.

I personally used 10 drops of tea tree essential oil.

After this, mix in your squirt of sulfate free soap.

I used one squirt of my Astara Aromatic Seaweed Body Wash (See Review – here!) , but you don’t have to use body wash. You can use baby soap, sulfate free hand soap or whatever you have on hand.

Stir slowly so it doesn’t get foamy.

Next, you place each half of the paper towel roll, cut end down, in your two tupper wares.

Don’t worry if they seem too tall for the tupper ware; they shrink WAY down once you pour the water mixture on them.

Carefully pour your water mixture (2 cups each tupper ware) over your two paper towels until now water is left. Smash the paper towels down and close the tupper wares. Flip them over for a second to allow the liquid to drain back over the paper towels again then flip right side up again. Open the tupper wares and remove the cardboard tubing in the center of the rolls. Pull the paper towel from the center and there you have it!

Store them in the tupper wares and use as you please!
