Make Your Own Household Disinfectant Wipes

You have probably noticed that household cleaning wipes are getting really expensive. I did see that you can buy a smaller container of them at the Dollar Store, but this DIY version is even cheaper. All you need are some paper towels, some cleaning solution, and an empty wipes container.


  • Roll of paper towels
  • Cleaning solution
  • Empty wipes container
  • Water

Cut a roll of Bounty paper towels in half with a bread knife, and remove cardboard tube. In an empty wipes container add 1 1/2 cups water and 1/2 cup of cleaner. You can use your favorite store bought cleaner or this easy DIY household cleaner.

Place roll of paper towels in and seal with lid. Turn upside down until all liquid is absorbed in paper towels. To use, pull each piece of paper towel out of the center, just like you would a container of store-bought wipes.

Note: I used a cheap brand of paper towels when I made my wipes. Although the wipes still work fine, you definitely want to invest in the heavier duty paper towels like Bounty. The wipes will hold up a lot better than if you use the cheaper ones, and you will still be saving lots of money by making your own cleaning wipes.
