Pour in the solution, put the lid on the jar, give it a good shake and leave it upside down for 10 minutes to ensure all the wipes are wet.  That’s it, they’re ready to use!  Machine wash the chux and they’re ready to be used again.

      Hi Glenda, this combination is not good for faces/hands as theres a high concentration of essentials oils for antibacterial purposes. Our Baby Wipe solution is perfect for children, you can use it the same way with the chux wipes. Triona
