DIY Cleaning Wipes

I make my own cleaning wipes. Why? because store-bought wipes are harsh on the skin and the smell is just awful. Plus who knows how many chemicals are really in them. Making my home as toxic-free as possible is important to me so I make my own. This recipe is super simple and uses only three ingredients. Tip: Make multiple batches when you do this so you will always have some handy! And since the Thieves Cleaner is all plant based ingredients, even the littlest kids in your life can help in your cleaning efforts!

We use these wipes to:

  • clean the bathroom (toilets, sink, handles, knobs, and switches)
  • clean the kitchen (tabletop, counters, fixtures, appliance fronts, and trash can)
  • clean lightswitches, doorknobs, and spot cleaning visible dirt around the house

Pretty much every surface of your home!
