How to Make Your Own Lysol Disinfecting Wipes


Disinfecting wipes are an efficient and versatile way to kill germs quickly. If you have pets or young children, these germ-killing wipes become an essential addition to your house. Of course, disinfecting wipes are expensive and it's easy to empty a container in places with high germ-traffic such as cubicles and classrooms. Making your own disinfecting wipes with a commercial cleaner, such as Lysol, gives you the ability to stretch your dollar and saves you a trip to the grocery store.

Things You'll Need

  • Lysol liquid disinfecting cleaner
  • 1 container baby wipes
  • Remove the stack of baby wipes from their container and remove the surface moisture by squeezing them over the sink with your hands. The wipes don't have to be bone-dry, but removing the excess moisture will allow them to absorb more of the Lysol.

  • Replace the stack of wipes in the container. Pour 1/2 cup of Lysol liquid disinfecting solution directly on top of the stack in the center of the top wipe.

  • Lift the stack of wipes half-way down and pour the remaining 1/2 cup of solution on to the top wipe. Dividing the wipes ensures equal distribution of Lysol cleaning liquid throughout the entire stack.

Tips & Warnings

  • Clearly label the container with duct tape so nobody accidentally uses these wipes on a baby.
