DIY Disinfectant or Clorox Wipes

 


 

 

Cleaning and sterilization became the top priority for everyone during the Corona pandemic, especially with science proving that Covid-19 germs can live on some surfaces for up to 3 days.

Unfortunately, there is a shortage of disinfectant sprays and disinfectant wipes in some countries, and if they are available they are very expensive, so some of us are looking for ways to make them at home. USA Today has provided a method for making sterile wipes.

 

How to make whitening antiseptic wipes:

 

• Wear gloves and open windows for ventilation.

 

• Mix the ingredients in an airtight container. The proportions are either 5 tablespoons of bleach to one gallon of water or 4 teaspoons of bleach to a quart of gallon of water.

 

• Immerse paper or cloth towels in completely diluted bleach for at least 5 minutes to absorb the solution effectively.

 

Close the container tightly.

 

• According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, bleaching solutions remain effective in disinfection for up to 24 hours only. Then you will need to make a fresh batch of diluted bleach every time you want to use disinfectant wipes.

 

How to make alcohol wipes:

 

• Wear gloves

• If you are using isopropyl alcohol at a concentration of 91%, mix 7 cups of alcohol with 3 cups of water.

 

• If you are using 95% ethanol alcohol, mix 6 cups of alcohol with 4 cups of water.

 

• Place paper or cloth towels in an airtight container and fill with freshly diluted alcohol solution until completely submerged.

 

• Wait 5 minutes before using for paper or cloth towels to absorb the solution effectively.

 

• Close the container tightly and store the tissues in a cool dark place to prevent alcohol evaporation (or place them in a resealable plastic bag intended for portable wipes).
