Cloth wipe spray for synthetic diapers

Hi all,

I would like to make my own cloth wipe spray to keep in a spray bottle (so shelf life matters). I use Softbums with fleece topped microfiber, and some bamboo inserts. I've been researching how to make the spray, so I know I need distilled water, an oil carrier, and some essential oils. Is there a great route to take that won't effect synthetics. I have coconut oil at home but I don't know which oil is best without being problematic. Any experienced advice would be great. Thanks.

Okay, I mixed up 1 tsp unrefined coconut oil (love that smell), 1 tsp sheamoisture baby wash (smells heavenly) and one cup distilled water. I will give it a try this week.

It shouldn't matter with a wipes spray if you're using natural ingredients. You run into problems with petroleum products and synthetics, but that's nothing you would need to worry about in a wipes spray.
