I just realized that I totally never shared this post about DIY Cleaning Wipes with you, which I meant to do weeks ago! I blame it on mom brain.
BUT, let’s talk for a second about these wipes.
I had no idea what to expect before making them…would they work? Would they be a waste of time? Well, I am happy to report that they. are. awesome.
For these, I used my new favorite Thieves Cleaner. This stuff, you guys. It’s such a gem, and talk about versatile. SO many uses!! Not only that, but a little goes a loooong way. I currently use it in my All-Purpose Cleaner and am also planning on making a glass/mirrors cleaner soon, as well as a fruit/veggie spray once my current one is finished up, too. Like I said…versatile!
So for the DIY Cleaning Wipes, super simple.
First, I cut a roll of paper towels in half (I’ve read people swearing by using Viva, but we had Up & Up brand from Target and they’ve been just fine). Next, I made the cleaning solution:
Once mixed, put a little bit in the bottom of a plastic container (the one seen here is one I found from HomeGoods a few years ago, but this container and this container are the same thing). I highly recommend the easy suction top!
Next, add the half roll of paper towels and pour the rest of the cleaning solution over the top. Turn the container upside down to ensure everything gets coated, pull out the cardboard center, then start using them by pulling from the innermost paper towel.
Super easy, and done in about 5 minutes!
I keep them right on my counter top, along with my other cleaners that I use daily.
