Homemade Baby Bottom Spray For Dirty Tushies

Homemade Baby Bottom Spray For Dirty Tushies | Growing Up Herbal | DIY wash for dirty baby bottoms. Smells great, easy to make, cleans bottoms well!

I’ve never met a baby that couldn’t benefit from some homemade baby bottom spray.

I mean, baby’s bottoms… talk about dirty.

Unless you do infant potty training, your baby pees and poos on themselves multiple times a day. Not to mention, they wear that mess around for who knows how long, especially if you’re a mom like me. You know, four kids, endless dirty dishes and laundry, and school to finish. Yeah, mama, you know what I’m talking about. Who has time to change diapers every 2 hours, right?

Today, I’m sharing my favorite recipe for baby bottom spray with you. I call it “Clean Bums” Baby Bottom Spray. It smells great, it’s good for your little one’s skin, it has some mild antibacterial properties, and it’s super easy to make. If you still have a kiddo in diapers, you can thank me later.

This baby bottom spray is so easy to make. Grab a measuring cup, all your ingredients, a spray bottle, and you’re good to go. 

This spray is great to use with homemade cloth baby wipes or plain jane disposable baby wipes. Simply spray baby’s bottom with your homemade baby bottom spray, and wipe clean. Repeat as necessary. You can also us this mixture as your homemade cloth baby wipes solution if you want.

Okay, on to the recipe.

  1. Combine all ingredients in a glass measuring cup.
  2. Mix well.
  3. Pour into a spray bottle.
  4. Label and store.


This spray will last 1-2 weeks unrefrigerated and close to 1-2 months when refrigerated after each use. Seeing how it’s mostly water, bacteria can grow in this solution rather quickly. One thing that keeps it from happening as quickly as some other products, such as lotions, is that this one has a lid (so it’s not exposed to too much oxygen) and it doesn’t come into direct contact with anything. With that being said, it won’t last indefinitely. If you find that you’re not using all of this solution before you need to make a new batch, just cut the ingredient amounts in half.

See how easy that was? I told you so.

Now you can enjoy those sweet baby bottoms! This will definitely help!

Blessings, Meagan

    Looks great, Meagan! I make my own cloth wipes with a really basic solution of castile soap and apricot kernel seed oil mixed with water, but a friend uses a bum spray like this one. I like how this has chamomile essential oil. That’s a favorite of mine!

    1. Sure, you could use a hydrosol in place of the water. Hydrosols are thought to have longer shelf-lives (although I believe they should still be refrigerated) than water alone; however, they’re not preservatives so the mix could still go bad. Most mamas who use this with every diaper change will use it rather quickly. You could always make a large batch that is stored in the fridge and used to refill the bottle when it’s empty. Hope that helps! I’d love to know what you decide and how it works out for you.

    1. I have never had any issues with using Castile soap in this or in homemade baby wipes when my boys were little, especially since it’s diluted with water and combined with some oil for nourishing the skin. I’ve also never had any other parents complain or report any issues with it either. Also, most babies are going to get multiple cleanings on their bottoms and a bath every day or two anyway, so most times, it’s not an issue. Hope this helps!
