With grocery stores and pharmacies running out of things like disinfectant wipes, we can look for alternative methods of making some of these products at home using materials we might already have in our laundry room cupboard or underneath our own kitchen sink. I was so excited to find this amazing video by a fantastic, ingenious Youtuber named Do It On A Dime describing how to make homemade disinfectant wipes that you can keep at home or take with you on the go for cleaning any surfaces before or after touching or handling. You only need a few simple ingredients such as bleach and rubbing alcohol. As Do It On A Dime says, don’t just take her word for it, see the link from the CDC themselves describing best practices to keep your living environment germ free in this article, Disinfecting Your Home If Someone Is Sick, step by step the CDC tells you everything you need to know about keeping your family and yourself safe.
In the video, you will first learn to cut your paper towel roll in half with a sharp knife such as a bread knife and place your half-size rolls in airtight containers. Then remove the cardboard center from your paper towel roll and add your bleach and water mixture, then pull out the center paper towel, leaving a pull tag at the top and cover with the airtight lid.
For the alcohol sterilizer, you just screw the spray nozzle onto a bottle of 70% alcohol and use where needed. I found this video very useful, I hope you will too.
