Here’s a Quick Way to Make the Best Disinfectant Wipes

Inside: I show you how to make the best disinfectant wipes with common household items you probably have sitting around right now!

Learning how to make my own disinfecting wipes started as an easy way to save money, but now it’s saving me from the stress and hassle of finding them in stores or online.

Today I’m sharing the quick tutorial that I’ve used for years.

The best part is, you can make these wipes using items you probably have sitting on your shelves already!

Here’s What You’ll Need

Homemade disinfectant wipes sit on a counter next to Lysol cleaner.

The Steps

  1. Cut your paper towel roll in half right in the middle (I use a bread knife for the job).
  2. Squish the half roll into the container.
  3. Fill up the measuring cup with 1.5 cups hot water (you can use less if you want the solution to be more concentrated).
  4. Add the cleaner until you get 2 cups of liquid total. Mix well.
  5. Pour the cleaning solution over the paper towel half in the container.
  6. Cover the container with its lid and let it sit for 2 minutes.
  7. Remove the container’s lid, pull out the brown paper towel center, and pull up the center wipe for use.

**The great thing about this tutorial is that you can use any cleaner you’d like. If you’re looking for specific cleaners that will kill Covid-19, please refer to the CDC guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting.
