Can I use Clorox disinfecting wipes on my baby?

I am a single mother. Today, My baby poo'd her diaper. When I was searching for baby wipes, I noticed there were none. So I gave her a bath. I discovered I have clorox wipes in my cabinet, but I'm hesitant to use them. My paycheck comes in two days, and I'm torn whether I should give her a bath every time, or try clorox wipes.
Will it harm her?


I also like the smell.

No, they are not meant to clean skin. In fact, if you read the label there are precautions about handling. Use a warm, damp washcloth to clean your baby.

Absolutely not. Never use bleach on your baby!

No! But you can make your own wipes for a lot less then buying them at the store. Take a few paper towels and some baby shampoo even less then a pea size wet the paper towels ring them out and out them in a plastic bag put a tiny bit of baby shampoo or soap into the bag and just smoosh it around.

I wouldn't use anything on my babies skin that I would not use in myself. I can't imagine wiping any of my personal parts with bleach. I imagine bleach getting in a baby's private parts by accident or not would burn.
