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.
