Happy Frugal Friday Ladies!
Today I bring you a easy and inexpensive way to make your very own disinfectant wipes. I really enjoy making my own cleaning and household products.  Loving the fact  that I am fully aware and have full control as to what is in the household items I use in my home and around my family.
This recipe is great! and has great antibiotic, antiviral, antiseptic, and antifungal properties. All that's needed  is a few items, and you will have yourself your very own DIY disinfectant wipes.
1 mason jar with a lid.
*** If you will be using vinegar with this recipe . Use a mason jar with a plastic lid , rather than one with a metal lid as the vinegar will interact with the metal lid.  If you do not have a plastic lid , just put a piece of saran wrap over the top of your jar before putting on your metal lid.***
Micro fiber clothes cut into 10-20 ( more or less if you like) or cut pieces of an old t-shirt. ( I perfer using micro fiber cloths, as they do a better job at cleaning.)
1-1/4 cup distilled or purified water. ( I use purified water it aids in the lifespan of your DIY products)
1/4 cup white vinegar or castile soap.
*** please do not use both vinegar and castile soap should not be used together. To find out why read here :   ( I perfer to use vinegar, oppose  to using castile soap for this recipe the castile soap was just a bit to soapy for me .) *** When I use castile soap in any of my cleaning products I always use Dr. Bronners.
3-4 drops of  Tea Tree EO - which is filled with antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties.
3-4 drops of Eucalyptus EO-  filled with antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties.
3-4 drops of Lavender EO- Also filled with antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties.
Cut your pieces of cloths.  Put your cut clothes into your mason jar. Mix your water , vinegar or soap, and EO'S . Once you've do that simply pour the liquid over your wipes. put on your lid and give a good shake. Squeeze your wipes upon each use to release the extra liquid back into the jar. And there you have DIY Disinfectant wipes
A great benefit to this is your wipes can be reused. After using your wipes simply put your wipes in the wash. And reuse as many times as you like.  Safe, effective, and a money saver!
Thanks for stopping by and joining us for Frugal Friday. Until next time. Have a great weekend. and remember to stay Naturally Fabulous!
