DIY disinfecting wipe recipe
I recently shared a recipe for homemade hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer is one of those things I didn’t think I’d ever have to create a DIY tutorial for. It’s readily available and really cheap- at least it was until last week.
The COVID-19 virus is starting to take over my little town. It’s really bad just south of us near Seattle where I have some family member who are in the red zone. Pretty much all of our community activities that involve 10 or more people have been cancelled.
The elementary and high schools are still open for now. We already missed a bunch of school because of snow days during the winter so hopefully they can stay open.
We are washing our hands like crazy and trying to keep things as clean as possible.
Supplies like hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies, gloves and masks are almost impossible to find. Unless you want to order them online for $500.
Because supplies are scarce I came up with this recipe for DIY cleaning wipes. You can easily make these wipes and stash them in your car or pantry for those times you need to disinfect something quickly.
