How To Make DIY Paper Towel Cleaning Wipes
Using a medium-sized container with a tight-fitting lid, cut a small hole in the center of the lid.
Next, fit the paper towels to the container. Stand up the paper towels in the container. Using a pen, mark off a little below where the container ends on the roll.
Remove the roll from the container and cut it where you marked the line. Now they should fit into the container with the lid on. Leave the towels inside the container for now.
Next, you’ll mix up your cleaning solution. Take 1/2 cup of your favorite cleaner (E-how suggest Pine since it is safe for most surfaces).
Mix it in a bowl with 2 3/4 cups water. Now pour it into the container with the prepared paper towels.
Pull the cardboard tube out of the center of the paper towel roll.
Put the lid onto the top of the container and let the mixture sit overnight.
When you’re ready to use these wipes, you just need to pull the first one out. Pull up the outermost paper towel and pull it through the container lid hole.
