Have you ever thought to yourself, “My goodness, I’m ruining the planet with all of these Clorox wet wipes I’m using?”

I have. So I decided to start making my own. This’ll save both money and the environment!

You will need:

  • Washcloths
  • A jar or container (big enough to hold all your washcloths!)
  • 2 tablespoons liquid detergent
  • ¼ cup rubbing alcohol
  • 1 cup water

My container was so big that I actually quadrupled my amounts of detergent, rubbing alcohol, and water to cover all the washcloths. But that turned out to be a mistake — it made my wipes way too sudsy.

Basically, learn from my mistakes. There’s no need to load up on ingredients, no matter how many washcloths you use.
