For the most part, I just use my all purpose spray and a micro-fiber cloth to clean but for certain jobs I prefer to have these homemade wipes. I make these mostly for the boys bathroom. Yeah, remember the messy boy bathroom issue? I leave these wipes in there so they can clean up accidents in a flash. I have to make things super simple for them. These wipes do the trick.
These are easy to grab and easy to use. They are boy proof!
Homemade All Purpose Cleaner Wipes / Napkins (use in place of Clorox or Lysol wipes)
- 1 container
- 1-2 cups Natural All Purpose Spray
- 10-20 cloth napkins, Bounty paper towels, or cut up t-shirts
If you use the Bounty paper towels you will need to cut the roll in half with a bread knife and then remove the cardboard roll. You could also cut old t-shirts into squares and use them instead. I prefer using birdseye cloth napkins. These are very easy to make and I can have a lot (hundreds of them) for use as paper towels, dinner napkins, and wipes.
Place napkins inside of container. Pour All Purpose Cleaner over them until they are saturated. To use, remove a napkin, wring it out, and clean surfaces. Wash used napkin with laundry. Check out my 21 Ways to Use All Purpose Cleaner.
After napkins have been used, then washed, they can go right back into the solution. As the amount of liquid drops just add a bit more. I usually was the container in the dishwasher every 4th or 5th time I refill it. When I have to make a new gallon of the All Purpose Cleaner is usually the signal for me to wash the container.
