1. Gather your supplies. You’ll need a glass jar, cloth towels, white vinegar, rubbing alcohol, and your favorite essential oil.

2. Cut the towels into squares. You can make them as big or as small as you’d like.

3. In a glass jar, mix together 1 cup of white vinegar, 1 cup of rubbing alcohol, and 10-15 drops of your favorite essential oils.

4. Place the paper towel squares into the bowl and let them soak for a few minutes.

5. Once the paper towels are saturated, remove them from the bowl and place them into the airtight container.

6. When you’re ready to use them, simply grab one of the wipes and use it to clean and disinfect surfaces.

These natural disinfectant wipes are perfect for disinfecting surfaces in your home and cleaning your hands. They’re also much safer than using harsh chemical cleaners, so you can feel good about using them around your family. Not to mention that they’re easy to make and cost-effective, so you can make them as often as you need.
