Homemade Disinfecting Wipes

For the second week in a row, I forgot to buy disinfecting wipes.  The kids are sick, the hubby is sick, and I'm the last one standing.  Anyone knows that SAHM's do not have PTO or sick days to use up.  Those are a far and distant memory, so I HAVE to stay well. 

Then it hit could I not figure this out sooner?  I will make my own disinfecting wipes.  Easy enough, I Googled it and found the directions on  I can't take credit for this, but I will take the credit for being smart enough to make them instead of buying pricey wipes from the store!


  1. Lay the roll of paper towels on its side on a flat, level surface such as a cutting board or counter. Use the serrated knife to cut the roll in half, width-wise. Press down on the roll as you cut so that the cardboard tube in the center of the roll is compressed and somewhat crushed.
  2. Remove the cardboard tube from the roll of paper towels and discard it. Set the two half-rolls of paper towels aside.
  3. Measure 1 1/2 cups of distilled water into a plastic container, such as a clean margarine tub or food storage container. The container should be large enough to hold one of the half-rolls of paper towels upright. Add 1/2 cup of liquid disinfectant household cleaner to the water and stir.
  4. Place one of the half-rolls of paper towels into the container. Seal the lid tightly, and flip the container onto its lid. Set it in a sink or on a counter in case any of the liquid leaks.
  5. Allow the homemade disinfectant wipes to stand overnight so that all of the liquid will be absorbed into the paper towels. Use the homemade disinfectant wipes by opening the lid and pulling a paper towel out of the center of the roll. If desired, you may cut a slit in the lid, and pull the homemade disinfectant wipes out through this hole.

Tips & Warnings
  • These homemade disinfectant wipes are only intended to use for household cleaning. Do not use the homemade disinfectant wipes for personal cleaning.
