How to make diy reusable disinfectant wipes for your home cleaning projects

To make reusable disinfectant wipes, you'll need a few ingredients and materials. Here's a simple recipe:


1. Airtight container or jar

2. Cotton or microfiber cloth squares (cut into suitable sizes)

3. Spray bottle


1. 1 cup of distilled water

2. 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol (at least 70% concentration)

3. 1 tablespoon of white vinegar

4. 5-10 drops of essential oil (optional, for a pleasant scent)


1. Mix the distilled water, rubbing alcohol, white vinegar, and essential oil (if using) in a spray bottle. Shake the bottle gently to combine the ingredients.

2. Fold or stack the cotton or microfiber cloth squares and place them into an airtight container or jar. Make sure the container is clean and dry.

3. Pour the disinfectant solution from the spray bottle over the cloth squares in the container until they are damp but not soaking wet. You may need to adjust the amount of solution based on the number and size of cloth squares.

4. Close the container tightly, allowing the disinfectant solution to saturate the cloth squares. Let them sit for a few minutes to ensure they are fully soaked.

5. Your reusable disinfectant wipes are now ready to use. When needed, simply pull out a cloth, wring out any excess liquid, and use it to clean and disinfect surfaces. After each use, wash the cloth with soap and water, then air dry or tumble dry on low heat.

Remember to label your container and store the wipes in a cool, dry place. It's also important to periodically check the solution's effectiveness and replace it if it becomes cloudy or loses its disinfectant properties.
