DIY Disinfecting Wipes Recipe

All you need is:

  • a roll of paper towels, cut in half
  • an airtight container big enough to hold your half paper towel
  • 1 -2 TBSP Natural Dish Soap
  • 1/4 cup Rubbing Alcohol (Isopropyl Alcohol 70%)
  • 1 1/4 cups Distilled Water
  • (optional: up to 15 drops of essential oil for fragrance)

Swirl to mix the ingredients above and pour over a cut-in-half paper towel roll into the airtight container. Let sit overnight so the paper towels have time to wick up the solution evenly.

Once these have soaked, remove the cardboard part of the paper towel in the center and you will be able to dispense your towels that way.
