How to Make Disinfectant Wipes DIY... inspiring ideas DIY

What You’ll Need:

Air-tight container
Measuring cup
Cotton or microfiber cloths
Materials
Heavy-duty paper towels, napkins or guest towels
Isopropyl alcohol or grain alcohol
Essential oils (optional)
Label or masking tape

Lifestyle Changes to Improve Your Cholesterol 

The container you select must be air-tight if you are making more wipes than you plan to use in the next hour or so. Alcohol evaporates very quickly and you’ll be left with dry wipes.

A glass container like a wide-mouth jar, an old commercial disinfectant wipes container, or a plastic container with a lid works well. 

It should be large enough to hold 40 folded paper towels and 3 cups of liquid.

Select the Towels, The paper products that you use to make the wipes should be strong enough to stand up to cleaning while they are wet. 

Healthy Diet Plant-Based Diet

Heavy-duty paper towels, paper guest hand towels, and paper napkins work well. You can leave them full-size or cut them into smaller pieces if desired.

If you would like to go green and create reusable wipes, 100 percent cotton, bamboo, or microfiber washcloths can also be used. Reusable wipes should be machine-washed in hot water after every use.

Layer the Towels, Separate the towels into individual pieces and fold or roll to fit the container.

If you are reusing a pop-up wipe container, fold them with one layer interwoven with the next towel so they will pull up together.

If you have a round container, you may be able to cut a roll of paper towels in half and remove the inner cardboard core to create a “pull-from-the-center” roll of wipes.

Belly Fat in Women 

Measure the Disinfecting Solution, You need enough alcohol to cover and saturate the towels. Three cups of alcohol will saturate about 40 folded paper towels.

Add Essential Oils, Essential oils add a pleasant scent and some oils do have antibacterial qualities. You may mix and match to suit your sensibilities in the quantity that you desire.

Recommended oils with some antibacterial qualities are tea tree, lavender, geranium, lemon, orange, eucalyptus, rosemary, cinnamon, clove, thyme, or peppermint.

Saturate and Cover the Wipes, Pour about half of the alcohol (with essential oils, if desired) over the towels.

Wait until the liquid is absorbed and pour in the rest. You may need to add a bit more alcohol if the towels are not fully wet.

There should be some liquid visible in the container. Cover the container tightly and the wipes are ready to use.

Label the Container, Use a paper label or a piece of masking tape to label the container. Place out of reach of children and pets.

How to Use a DIY Disinfecting Wipe, Now that you know how to make your own disinfecting wipes be sure to use them correctly to disinfect surfaces.

Remove Heavy Soil, While your disinfecting wipes will remove some grime from surfaces, they will be more effective if you clean away grease and heavy soil from surfaces first before disinfecting.

What Is The Paleo Diet?

Check the Moisture Level, The wipes don’t need to be drippy, but they do need to be very moist.

There must be enough of the alcohol left on the kitchen counter, doorknob, or television remote to kill bacteria.

Allow the Disinfectant Time to Work, To kill most bacteria, the surface you are cleaning should remain wet for at least four minutes. Do not wipe away the alcohol; allow it to air dry.

Use More Than One Wipe, One wipe will not disinfect an entire kitchen or bathroom. One wipe will usually disinfect an area of around three-square-feet.

The Real Mom’s Guide 

Dispose of the Wipe Properly, Paper products soaked in alcohol should not be added to a compost pile.

Dispose of the wipes in a trash can. If you are using cloth wipes, place them in a small hamper until it is time to wash a load of laundry.

Wash Your Hands, After cleaning and disinfecting any area, wash your hands properly to remove any cleaning products or lingering bacteria.

Another RECIPE FOR DIY HAND SANITIZING WIPES
1 1/2 cups alcohol (99% rubbing alcohol is the best choice) or grain alcohol (see above)
2 ounces aloe vera gel
2 tsp vegetable glycerin
1 tsp of essential oils (you can use any combo to make 1 teaspoon. I like cinnamon, clove, rosemary, eucalyptus, lavender, and tea tree.)

Mix together in measuring cup and pour over wipes. Make sure the wipes are VERY well saturated. You want them to be even more “wet” than a regular wipe.
