DIY Cleaning Wipes

Cleaning wipes that can be used almost anywhere in the house are a great product to have on hand. But purchasing them in store, on a regular basis can really add up on your grocery bill! So what’s the next best solution? Well, one option is to create your own cleaning wipes to use around the house! They are cost-effective, smell great and work on almost any surface. Check out the instructions below to make your own DIY cleaning wipes:

Items Needed:

  • Vinegar
  • Water
  • Paper Towel
  • Dish Soap ( Any brand will do)
  • Essential Oil (Any smell you like!)
  • A Jar or Container of your choice (Taller is better)


  1. Start by cutting a full roll of paper towel in half and putting it to the side.
  2. Grab your container of choice and add a cup of  water mixed with a cup of vinegar and a few drops of your favorite essential oils (citrus oils work great!) .
  3. Once the mixture has combined together, add a few drops of dish soap and mix liquids together well.
  4. Grab your roll of paper towel, remove the cardboard middle and pop it in the container.
  5. Once the lid is sealed tight, flip the container over and let the paper towels soak up all the liquid.  Let it sit for at least 30 minutes or until the paper towel is completely soaked through.
  6. Your wipes are now ready to be used! They are safe to use on almost any surface and can be refilled as needed!

    I’ve tried something like this before. How do you stop it from becoming mildewy?

    • Samantha, make smaller batches. Vinegar can be used to clean up mildew, so you shouldn’t have a problem with mildew unless your wipes are going unused for a long while.

      You shouldn’t make more than you expect to use in about a week or so.
