I love the convenience of cleaning wipes but they can be really expensive. If you worry about the ingredients in cleansers they can also be chemical mine fields. My biggest advice when finding natural or homemade cleaners is to do your research. You do not want to mix cleansers even natural ones if you do not know the chemical reaction they have when mixed. Also not all natural cleaners are antibacterial or kill germs. Bleach and water is still the best cleanser out there for disinfecting a surface. Vinegar is great for cleaning and breaking down stains but it does not kill all germs. If you want to check call your local environmental agency or health department.

I am sharing a light cleanser and a heavy cleanser the difference is the addition of Alcohol in the heavy cleanser to help kill germs.

Light Cleansing Wipes

You need:

Make Your Own Household Cleaning Wipes from H&P Artistry

1 roll paper towels cut to fit an air tight container (Use cloth like paper towels. Cheap paper towels disintegrate if left in the liquid.)

1 air tight container

1 1/2 cup of water

2 tbsp of Dawn dish detergent. You can use the detergent of your choice but I like Dawn.

2 tbsp white distilled vinegar

a few drops of essential oil

Mix well in a measuring cup.

Cut your Paper towels to fit inside your container. Use a sharp knife to avoid lint.

Put the paper towels into the container.

Slowly pour the cleaning mixture onto the paper towels. Pour a little at a time to make sure the liquid is absorbed fully into the towels. Once the cardboard core of the towels is saturated you can carefully pull it out of the center.

Now you can pull the wipes up from the center of the container.

You want your towels fully saturated so you may need to make two batches of cleanser. It is better to start small and add as needed that to have too much cleanser.

You can also use lime, lemon or orange zest instead of essential oils.

 

I used rose essential oil. What is your favorite scent for cleaning products?
