No matter where you’re located, I can bet we have a similar problem. For months now, disinfectant wipes are impossible to find. They’re in high demand, for sure, and also essential to have so we can keep our surfaces as clean as possible.
There’s a very simple way to make your own disinfectant wipes at home.
In a 1-gallon glass jar, cut a roll of paper towels in half, length-wise.
Place the paper towel half into the glass jar.
Mix 1 cup Isopropyl alcohol (70% or above), 2 cups water, 1 tbsp dish soap, and 3-5 drops essential oil (optional). Some great essential oil options are orange, tea tree, or lemon.
Pour the mixture around paper towels and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. Once it soaks into the paper towels, pull the cardboard middle out and toss. This will allow you to pull your wipes from the center, like in a regular disinfectant wipe canister.
