Pre-crunchy mama loooved Lysol disinfectant wipes for cleaning. I am a naturally messy person when cooking, so having wipe for a quick clean after cooking is so nice. Recently, I did some research on the products I use. I was not happy with what I found on the disinfectant wipes. So, I decided to make my own!
I have seen recipes for homemade baby wipes using paper towel, so I figured why not use it for this?
|My homemade cleaning wipes|
I mixed Dr. Bronner's Liquid Castile Soap (unscented baby--I purchased mine at Target) with tea tree oil, lavender, and distilled water. I did not use specific measuring for the ingredients, but I think i was something close to this:
1-2 tsp Dr. Bronner's Liquid Castile Soap
3-4 drops tea tree oil
3-4 drops lavender
4 cups distilled water
|Left side=my mess, Right side=cleaned with the homemade wipes! |
No joke, I am this messy after only one time using the stove...
Voila! Very easy to make! And very good for clean-ups too!
|Yay! Clean stove after messy me cooked dinner!|
Update: I made another batch of the cleaning wipes. This time, I used sweet orange essential oil instead of lavender. It works great!! And it smells great too! I still had my other half of the paper towel from the first batch, so I will update later when I make more with a higher quality paper towel. :)
