With shortages of all types of sanitary wipes that we have seen recently at our local stores in the past couple of weeks, it’s really made many of us think about learning to make our own, so we are not dependent on the supply chain for our cleaning products. In fact, every cleaning product you use in your home may come with hidden chemicals you didn’t even know about. Actually, these times of hardship have taught us some valuable lessons, like learning what our products are actually made of and also to learn the self-reliance to be able to make our own cleaners. The thing about self-reliance is that in many cases we realize that under the guise of convenience you may very well be exposing yourself to many potentially harmful chemicals that you did not know about, especially because many of our kitchen cleaning products and laundry soaps have been manufactured in other countries and are not adequately or honestly labeled. The thing that I have really learned through all of these shortages is to think about what is actually in these products we purchase and to realize that maybe I could do better because I’m pretty particular when it comes to what ingredients I like to use. The method of making kitchen wipes for this particular recipe is really basic and involves ingredients you probably already have under your sink.
First mix your water, alcohol (or vinegar), and dish soap.
Then pour over your half of a roll of paper towels in your container, saturating well, then remove the cardboard center and they are ready to use.
These wipes are my favorite cleaner, I really love them.
