DIY disinfectant wipes using paper towels
People have changed the way they shop since COVID-19. Many necessities are hard to find or are completely out of stock at some retailers. Cleaners and disinfectants are some such examples.
But you can avoid going without by using ingredients that you have on hand. Here’s a suggestion for homemade disinfectant wipes using paper towels:
What you’ll need:
1 roll of heavy-duty paper towels
2/3 cup of water
1/3 cup of rubbing alcohol with 60% to 90% concentration
4 drops dish soap
Plastic cylindrical container with lid
Sharp serrated knife
- Make sure your paper towel roll will fit into the plastic container. If it’s too big, remove as many sheets as necessary until it fits. Save extra sheets for another use.
- Measure the length of the paper towel roll that will fit into the container with the lid on, and mark the space — about halfway is best. On a clean, dry surface, use the serrated knife to cut the paper towel to size. Insert the cut roll into the container.
- In a measuring cup, add 2/3 water and 1/3 rubbing alcohol to make a full cup in total. Add 4 drops of dish soap, and stir gently to combine.
- Pour the entire contents slowly over the paper towel, making sure to distribute the liquid evenly over the towels so it absorbs into the entire roll.
- Once the liquid has soaked in, remove the cardboard core from the center and discard or save for another purpose. Pull the towels from the center of the roll to use as disinfectant wipes.
This is a simple way to meet your cleaning needs if the store is out of stock on cleaning necessities.
