Making Disinfecting Wipes
I have seen other's replace their wipes with a soap solution and paper towels. But, instead of wasting the paper, I have decided that instead I am going to cut up some fabric from old T-shirts. I have to do the laundry anyway... I decided to keep the solution simple rather than use a bunch of essential oils:
2 tbsp. Liquid Castile Soap
1 ½ cups Hot Water
½ cup Vinegar
I had some lemon-marinated vinegar on hand, so that’s what I used to get a light citrus smell.
But I regress…
First I cut up the fabric into rectangles.
I folded to stagger the rectangles.
(It will pull the next rectangle up the hole of the container like store-bought wipes. And it works! Which makes the minutes it took to fold these worth it.)
Mix the solution and pour it into the container.
So I have used them and they work just fine. Even better, they smell like soap. I added a bag under my sink for the used wipes. When it's full, I will wash them.
