In 2013, my goal was to change over as much of my household and personal care items as possible to natural alternatives. I didn’t want to buy the expensive ones that still use tons of packaging and cramp my budget! I mean low cost alternatives from things I already have around my house. While I made a lot of changes, the one thing I just couldn’t get used to was not having the disposable wipes for the bathrooms and kitchen. I really tried the spray with reusable rags, but it just annoys me for some reason. So, I kept buying the Clorox Green Works ones because they were a more natural alternative. But one day I sat down and went to work to find a reusable option and I found a great one!!!
Gather your supplies:
about 10 rags (I cut mine from t-shirts that were too stained to donate)
I grabbed a disinfecting wipes container and added about 10 rags. Then, in a 1 cup measuring cup add 1/2c. vinegar and 1/2c. hot water and 10 drops of essential oil. I love peppermint!
Pour it over the rags and let them sit for a minute to soak up the cleaning solution.
That’s it! I usually make these up as I need them. Since they don’t have preservatives and chemicals in them, there’s a good chance they will mold if you just leave them in the container to use whenever. Also, I wash these cleaning rags in a separate load on hot with a bit of a vinegar rinse. I have a little laundry basket they all go into and I do that load once a week. Then it’s not mixing in with any of our other clean laundry! I hope this works for your family too!!
