Love the convenience of disinfectant wipes, but not the price when you are paying $3-4 for two dozen wipes? You can make your own for a fraction of the price!
First, buy a roll of good quality paper towels. If you buy the thinner inexpensive ones, the paper towels will turn to mush quickly. Both Bounty and Viva paper towels work great for this. Cut the roll in half or in thirds, depending on the size of wipes you would like, and remove the cardboard roll tube from inside.
You also need a plastic container. A empty baby wipes container works great for this. If you don’t have kids, ask your friends, because someone is sure to have a couple empty ones around in the house somewhere. If you already have one of the larger sized containers used for disinfectant wipes, you can use that instead.
In a bucket, combine 1 1/2 cups water with 1/2 cup anti-bacterial cleaner (such as Mr. Clean antibacterial). Mix and pour half of the mixture (1 cup) into baby wipes container. Place paper towels slowly into the solution, and pour the other half of the cleaning solution over top slowly, so it soaks in. Close the lid and allow it to sit and soak for about a day, then it is ready to use.
You can also use your preferred scent of cleaner, so they are scented.
