DIY Disinfecting Wipes.
I’ve been trying to move to more reusable products, but one thing I have not been able to eliminate from my cupboards is disinfecting wipes. I use them a lot in the kitchen and bathrooms and I’m in love with how easy it is to wipe something off and discard the dirty wipe.
However, I know that this is wasteful, so I recently attempted to make my own homemade disinfecting wipes.
I’ve been using these wipes for a few weeks now and I must say, they do a great job. I still haven’t found the perfect recipe that will allow me to completely rid myself of disposable disinfecting wipes, but for now, this one is working well enough for me to at least stop using my disposables as much as I used to.
Want to make your own disinfecting wipes? Here’s the recipe:
- Small Container (I used an empty baby wipe container)
- 1/4 Cup Rubbing Alcohol
- 1 Cup Water
- 2 Tablespoons Dawn Dish Soap
The first thing you want to do is cut up some old, thin towels (t-shirts would work well, too) and put them into your small container. I cut mine into a size that would fit into my wipes container.
Mix rubbing alcohol, water and dish soap in a medium bowl.
Pour mixture over your cloths, making sure to cover them all completely.
That’s it! A simple recipe to make your own disinfecting wipes. Once they’ve been used, wash, dry, and repeat this same process.
