Make Your Own Reusable Kitchen Clean-up Wipes
Full Credit Blongs To This Awesome Blog------> http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2013/07/make-your-own-reusable-peppermint-kitchen-wipes.html
Note: I think I would use Natural Lavender Essential Oil
These simple-to-make kitchen wipes are the perfect example of a great all-natural alternative cleaning product! #1) They are REUSABLE, #2) they’re RECYCLED, and #3) they’re completely CHEMICAL-FREE.
Take an old t-shirt (or PJ’s, or whatever) that is bound for the donation bin, and cut it up into “rag-size” cloths.
Pour 1 cup warm water, 1/8 cup (or 1 ounce) liquid castile soap, and 5 – 10 drops of your favorite essential oil into a jar with a tight-fitting lid.
With its refreshing minty scent and powerful antibacterial properties, peppermint essential oil is a perfect complement to many homemade cleaning products.
Place the rags into the jar with the liquid. (I think I ended up with about 8 or 10 rags.)
Put the top on the jar (or whatever lidded container you prefer) and turn upside down a few times until all the rags are soaked.
After being used, the cloths can be washed and returned to the jar for RE-use over and over again.
Now whenever you have a messy spill or just want to freshen up the countertops after you’ve finished kitchen clean-up for the day…pull one out and enjoy knowing you’re saving time and money because you now have one less cleaning product on your shopping list.
