Today I’ve got a very simple recipe to make your very own Homemade Udder & Teat Wipes!
One of the biggest hurdles with homesteading or farming is to find natural alternatives when caring for your animals. When I first started to own animals, I couldn’t find recipes anywhere for homemade udder wipes, and so I resorted to using standard, harsh, chemical-laden udder wipes. They helped reduce the bacteria, but I never felt good about using such harsh chemicals when I was trying to raise my animals holistically.
Some of my friends use plain baby wipes, but even the cheapest, plainest baby wipes contain 10-20 chemicals. After some research, I found the perfect formula to create my homemade udder wipes and I’m excited to share with all of you!
Your goats, cows, & sheep will be grateful!
