Re: Clorox wipes alternative

get some washcloths and leave them in a solution of vinegar water with tea tree oil, thyme, grapefruit seed extract and an oil for scent.

Re: Clorox wipes alternative

Thanks everyone. We are trying out some cloth wipes with vinegar/water and tea tree oil right now. What scents are good to use of essential oil? DH is worried about the house smelling like vinegar and I don't love it when I'm using the wipes either.

I just keep a spray bottle with half dish soap half vinegar and a drawer of rags in the kitchen.

I love citrus scents as they work well in both the kitchen and bathroom areas. Probably weird but we like cinnamon as well (we use cinnamon toothpaste so don't find it weird in the bathroom lol).

How long would the wipes sitting in the solution last, do you think?

Re: Clorox wipes alternative

I make my own cleaner fill an empty jar with vinegar ( i use apple cider vinegar) and then add orange peels or lemon or both... let sit for at least 10 days remove peels and add a few drops of tee tree oil if you would like for added antiseptic but vinegar alone kills germs.... another is pricy at first but result is great and has many uses... thieves oil mix few drops in spray bottle... can also be used as a mouth wash and hand sanitizer ...
