DIY Disinfectant Wipes
Wet disinfectant wipes are convenient at home, in the car, and just about anywhere else the occasional spill or mess may happen, but like everything else these days, they’re getting more expensive. What isn’t expensive however is paper towels, all purpose cleaner and a container. That’s all it takes to make your own wet wipes—that and something to keep the wipes in, of course.
Here is a simple procedure for making DIY disinfectant wipes
Things You Need
- Paper towels. I prefer the rolls that have the choose your own size sheets, but any type will do.
- All-Purpose Cleaner. I choose to use one without bleach, but you may want to use a stronger cleaner from time to time.
- Measuring cup. This glass one makes it easy to mix up the solution.
- Container. Make sure it’s tall enough and has a lid.
How to Prepare
- Cut your paper towel roll in half right in the middle (I use a bread knife for the job).
- Squish the half roll into the container.
- Fill up the measuring cup with 1.5 cups hot water (you can use less if you want the solution to be more concentrated).
- Add the cleaner until you get 2 cups of liquid total. Mix well.
- Pour the cleaning solution over the paper towel half in the container.
- Cover the container with its lid and let it sit for 2 minutes.
- Remove the container’s lid, pull out the brown paper towel center, and pull up the center wipe for use.
Simple isn’t it? Do try it at home and let me know if you have any questions.
