Clorox, along with Lysol and many other brands, sells disinfecting wipes. Disinfecting wipes come pre-moistened with a mixture of bleach and other cleaning products and are used to kill germs on many surfaces such as counter tops and toilet bowls. The wipes are packaged in an airtight plastic container that locks closed so that the wipes do not dry out. You may be surprised to learn that these wipes can easily be made yourself at a fraction of the cost.
Things You'll Need
- Paper towels
- Container with air-tight lid
- Measuring cup
- All-purpose disinfecting liquid cleaner
Separate the paper towels at their perforations, then stack them on top of one another. If desired, cut the paper towels in half or in quarters.
Place the stack in an air-tight container, such as a large plastic food storage container or baby wipe container.
Pour 3 cups of all-purpose cleaner into the container. The cleaner will be absorbed by the paper towels.
Seal the container using the lid so that the paper towels do not dry out. Whenever you would like to use a wipe, open the lid, remove the paper towel, then replace the lid.
