DIY Reusable Antibacterial Wipes

The transition to an eco-friendly lifestyle can sometimes be daunting, you're not sure of the smells and you miss your old, handy products. We get it, but the environmental and health damages that commercial cleaning products cause, are far more of a worry. So stick with it, we’re here to try and help make that transition easier. 

The one thing that we do miss sometimes, are those very handy antibacterial wipes, that were so convenient to give the kitchen and bathroom a quick once over. But they were not biodegradable, were not natural and inevitably ended up in landfill or in the oceans. So we decided to do some research and make our own eco friendly version. Enjoy!

You will need : 

• Empty mason jar

• 10-20 cloths (Depending on size. We use cut up rags and leftover material)

• 1 Cup of Cool Boiled Water

• 1/2 Cup of White Vinegar

• 20 drops of essential oil (we use 10 eucalyptus and 10 wild orange)


• Simply pour your ingredients into your chosen jar and then pop enough cloths to nearly fill the jar.

• Pop the lid on the jar and give a little shake to cover all your cloths.

That’s it! Super easy and not damaging on the environment or your health.

Why these ingredients? Vinegar is antimicrobial, eucalyptus has antibacterial properties and wild orange is an excellent surface cleanser.

Simply pop them in with your regular wash, when you’re finished. We would recommend a fresh jar weekly. We hope you enjoy making these and benefit from them, for cleaning your home.
