I love for my home to be clean (or as clean as I can manage to get it) but I hate how expensive cleaning products are! If that sounds like you too, these DIY All Purpose Cleaning Wipes are the perfect solution!
I go through a crazy amount of cleaning wipes since I use them in every room of my house. I use them to keep my kitchen and bathroom surfaces clean. I use them to wipe down baseboards throughout the house. And during cold and flu season, I wipe down our light switches, doorknobs and phones with them too.
The wipes I use cost about $4 for a container. When I realized I could make my own DIY All Purpose Cleaning Wipes for a fraction of the cost I decided it would be stupid not to!
That brings me to another awesome point about these DIY All Purpose Cleaning Wipes, they are completely washable and reusable! So when you clean up a nasty mess, just toss it in the wash and when its done, roll it up and place it back in the cleaning solution.
Aside from saving money, another benefit of making your own cleaning wipes is that you keep harmful chemicals away from your family.
As you’ll see below in the instructions, these homemade cleaning wipes are made with things that are completely safe to use around your kids and pets. Did I mention that they also smell amazing?
If you think the essential oils are just for making it smell good, think again.
You’ve probably heard that lavender is calming. That’s true, but it’s a naturally antibacterial and antiviral, making it a great addition to homemade cleaning products.
Lemon is a grease-cutting powerhouse so it’s especially effective for cleaning products you use in the kitchen. Plus, it’s a natural mood lifter so you might even feel cheerful as you clean!
DIY All Purpose Cleaning Wipes
Add half of the warm water to your container.
Add the castile soap.
Add 15 drops each of lemon essential oil and lavender essential oil.
Whisk the ingredients together.
Cut each of the reusable cloth wipes in half. You should have 12 cloths once they have been cut in half. Roll each cloth up and place upright in the container. Add the rest of the water and give the container a shake.
