Day 26: Homemade Disinfectant Wipes

  • Vinegar
  • Air tight container

Homemade Disinfectant Wipes:
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol
  • 2 Tbsp. Dawn dish soap (only use Dawn)
  • 2 Tbsp. ammonia (optional)

I love the instructions given on Blissfully Ever After:

If you just use an empty Clorox container, then that’s the perfect size to fit a paper towel roll in it:
