DIY Cleaning Wipes

Clorox cleaning wipes offer an easy way to quickly clean up spills and messes, but they feature a number of toxic chemicals on the label. As single-use wipes, they’re also bad for the environment. This reusable option is a great alternative! Ingredients and Cleaning Supplies
  • 1 wide-mouth quart-size mason jar
  • 15-20 10” x 10” rags cut from old T-shirts or other scrap fabric
  • ¾ cup filtered or distilled water
  • ¾ cup white distilled vinegar
  • 15 drops lemon essential oil
  • 8 drops lavender essential oil
  • 4 drops bergamot essential oil
Directions
  1. Mix the essential oils, water, and vinegar together in your mason jar.
  2. Add your pre-cut cloths and press them firmly into the liquid.
  3. Secure the lid and tip your jar upside-down or shake to make sure that all wipes are completely damp.
  4. Store your wipes in a cool, dark cupboard or closet in order to preserve the essential oils.
