    Please move this if not in right place?
    Getting ready for kidding season here...
    Due to incredulous recordkeeping I cannot find the recipes for

    1) Homemade baby wipes
    2) That "magic" potion for lethargic kids which had equal amounts of whiskey black coffee & something else I don't remember!

    Thank you all so much once again!

    2) the potion you are referring to is not Magic, it's just a whiskey mixture. 1 part whiskey, 1 part strong coffee, 1 part karo syrup I believe. Give 1cc every 15 - 20 mins. I personally don't put in the whiskey.

    Magic is 1 part corn oil (no substituting), 1 part karo, 1 part molasses

    Economy baby wipes:

    1 roll of Bounty paper towels
    2 or 3 cups hot water
    1 tablespoon baby oil
    1 tablespoon baby bath or shampoo

    Cut a roll of Bounty paper towels in half to make it half the height. Pull out the cardboard roll, allowing it to pull towels from the center. Put up right in airtight container. Pour liquid mix over towel to moisten. Store in airtight container and continue to use towels from center.

    Ok, maybe I have been out of babies (human), but is that what you are using these wipes for?
    Sorry, I just couldn't imagine going and wiping my goats rears with wipes. Sorry, I think my family would lock me up.
    I never used a wipe ever on my kids. I used warm wash cloths all the time. I know i am weird. I just couldn't justify the wipes when they were cold on their little butts, and the residue that it leaves.

    Cleaning my own hands , wiping ears for shows, wiping up stuff in the barn.
    I dont usually do baby heinies if the dam does her job. Like you, Id rather use a nice warm wash cloth.

    We've used baby wipes for cleaning udders at shows, cleaning off dirty noses on goats and dirty spots that they get when they lay down in their pens at the shows. We have also used them for cleaning udders of the goats while at home-but now we are using wash clothes and warm water to clean udders before they go on the milk machine. I imagine you could use baby wipes to clean the ucky bottoms of baby goats-although we have hand towels around the barn during kidding season-plus an old mini dashund dog that thinks he is the baby goats mamma. He is pretty good about keeping them clean:).
