For several the past several months it has been nearly impossible for me to find disinfecting wipes in stock at stores or even online retailers. The world definitely feels like a different place now, and while I normally wouldn’t go through the trouble of making my own products when I can simply purchase them, I now realize the importance in learning to make my own supplies in a pinch when nothing else is available.

My easy-to-make DIY Disinfecting Wipes are key to keep in your home. They help get rid of unwanted bacteria off of your home’s most used surfaces, keeping things squeaky clean for you and your family.

Today I’m sharing how I made these handy DIY Disinfecting Wipes. I use them mostly on doorknobs and my kitchen counter. It’s reassuring to know that I’m cleaning my home and getting rid of any harmful bacteria lingering on our most used surface areas.

Important: please read the CDC recommendations for cleaning and disinfecting your home.

Combine water, bleach and tea tree oil in a large bowl. Pour over the paper towels, giving it a minute to soak (because the cardboard tube inside of the paper towels need to be softened enough in order to remove them).
