DIY Disinfecting Cleaning Wipes

by Tawra Kellam

I have seen recipes for disinfecting cleaning wipes all over the Internet. The one problem I have with most of them is that they use vinegar and tea tree oil. Well, vinegar and tea tree oil do not disinfect properly like you should in a bathroom. I know people swear that these ingredients disinfect and they do disinfect to a certain degree but to say vinegar totally disinfects as well as bleach is not true at all. (Just call your local health department if you don't believe me.)

This recipe calls for using rubbing alcohol. Not only does it truly disinfect but rubbing alcohol shines your faucets so they look great!!

The Dawn dish soap cuts grease which is another thing that vinegar does not do. (Think of oil and vinegar salad dressing. It doesn't mix!) So this recipe will really cut through that slime.

Here's Your Recipe


*After you make this recipe, you will need to adjust how much of the mixture you pour over your rags. I didn't have that many rags and they were pretty wet so I just used less of the cleaner.
