These homemade disinfectant wipes take just a few minutes to make and keep really well. Use paper towels or old rags. No need for bleach or rubbing alcohol for this version!
1 cup 190 proof grain alcohol
1/4 cup distilled water
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon dishwashing liquid soap
8-10 drops essential oils (optional)
- Stir together all ingredients really well in a mixing bowl.
- If you are using paper towels, cut a roll in half with a serrated knife, then tear off individual half sheets and fold them interweaved so when you pull one sheet out, the next one will follow. Fold 25 paper towel sheets into a stack.
- Place stack of wipes in a quart-sized plastic bag. Pour in half of the alcohol mixture. Try to distribute the liquid on all sides of the bag so it soaks evenly into the wipes.
- Seal bag. When ready to use, cut a small slit in the face of the plastic bag so you can pull a wipe through the whole. When not using, seal the bag with a piece of tape as the wipes will evaporate quickly since they are high in alcohol content.
