DIY Cleaning Wipes


*Paper towels
*Container (baby wipes container works great)
*Cleaning solution {see below}

1. Pull apart as many paper towels as you want {keep in mind you will cut them in half}

2. After cutting them in half fold them into thirds like an accordion.

3. Each paper towel needs to be fitted into the next so that when you pull one out the next one comes up {just like baby wipes}

4. Put your paper towels in your wipes container and poor cleaning solution over top to moisten all towels. {see different solutions below}

5. Let paper towels soak for 4+ hours  
{One tip I learned from a blogger on a television show: add any oil scents 
to the solutions that have vinegar to get rid of that  strong smell}
