Make Your Own Disinfectant Cleaning Wipes
What a difference a week makes. I never would have dreamt that in my lifetime there would be a shortage of toilet paper, paper towels and cleaning products! This is the perfect time to show you how to make your own disinfectant cleaning wipes.
Personally, I have been making my own cleaning supplies for several years now. I got tired of the toxic and un-pronounceable ingredients as well as the expense. With a just few ingredients from my home pantry I can create a multitude of cleaners.
Even though I didn’t follow the droves of people to hoard household items, I completely understand the panic. This can be a scary and unsettling time. If you were left high-and-dry in the household disinfectant wipe aisle, I’ve got you covered.
Vinegar on its own is a wonderful household cleaner, especially for glass or countertops. It can also kill bacteria, prevent mold and kill germs.
With the addition of rubbing alcohol, it becomes a winning combination of antibacterial germ fighters.
This is How you do it
- Paper towel roll (I use half sheets by Bounty)
- Sharp knife
- 1/2 cup distilled or cleaning vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol 70-91% (I used 91%)
- 1 teaspoon liquid Dawn dish soap
- 10 drops essential oil (optional)
- Cut the paper towels in half using a sharp cutlery knife or an Exacto knife., Squeeze the paper towels in to the container.
- Mix together the vinegar, dish soap, rubbing alcohol, and water in a measuring cup or small bowl.
- *Optional* Add 10 drops of essential oil to the wipes. This boosts its antibacterial powers. (I used Young Living Pine)
- Carefully pour the liquid over the paper towels. Once the paper towels are saturated, carefully remove the cardboard center.
- Pull a paper towel from the middle as your starter cleaning wipe.
- Keep wipes covered when not in use.
- clean coffee can with lid
- large mason jar with wide mouth opening
- empty wipes container (just refill with the new recipe)
- an XO container like THIS one
Easy peasy. Now you can sanitize and disinfect your home. I hope that you will now make cleaning disinfectant wipes for you home. Do you make any home cleaning products?
Let’s pinky-swear-promise to remain calm through the coming weeks. We are going to be just fine!
