I haven't tried this but it looks really easy.


Homemade Cleaning Wipes

1 round baby wipe container*
1 roll of paper towels**
2-4 cups cleaning solution (homemade is fine)

Recycle a used round baby wipe container. Cut a roll of paper towel in half, (an electric or serrated knife works best for this.) Remove the center cardboard. Place 1/2 of the paper towels in the baby wipe container. Pour cleaning solution into the container. (The amount will depend of the absorbency of your paper towels.) This can be used for window cleaner, all purpose cleaner, or disinfectant cleaner. Pull the first paper towel out of the center of the roll, through the hole in the container lid. If the paper towels dry out before they are all used add more solution or some water.

*If you don't have a baby wipe container, you can use a round plastic container and just drill or punch a large hole in the center of the lid.
**It is best to use expensive, thick paper towels. The cheap ones won't hold up to scrubbing.

Face/Hand Wipes

2 tablespoons liquid baby bath
2 cups water

Bathroom Wipes

1/2 cup pine cleaner
2 cups water

Window Wipes

1 cup glass cleaner
1 1/2 cups water

Nappy liners may stand up to more use and you can wash them and reuse. The only hitch is that i doubt it would work out any cheaper than buying a packet of wipes to start with.

I used to recycle the more cloth like baby wipes (not the really shit covered ones) by chucking them in the nappysan with the cloth nappys to soak then rinse and dry for use as nappy liners when my babies were still mostly breastfed. They weren't big enough once the children were eating more solids than milk Undecided.

I was in the loos at the local Mall and was watching the cleaner at work.  The surfaces were brilliant - I expect clean but these went beyond the expected.  I asked her what product she was using and it turned out to be just your garden variety cleaner with a touch of disinfectant.  Instead of spraying on the surface she would soak the cloth in a bucket and wring it out and let the excess evaporate off, then use it.  No streaks or smears even on the mirror when she wiped it to show me.

I've been using that system ever since and am thrilled.  Now if I can just get my kids to feel the same passion. **sigh**

I wonder why it is that with so many 'easy' ways to clean we still, in many cases buy something for the job from the supermarket.  I have an affinity to lavendar and although I have about 20 around the house in Hamiltn I never use them to make a cleaner or airfreshener - I buy something that is lavendar frangranced  Roll Eyes

  Me too.  I have a dehyrator and make potpourri.  I also had some broderie anglaise and made some lavender bags to throw in the drawers and hang in the wardrobes.        Mixed spices, cloves and vanilla beans tossed into a knee hi stocking can be hung in the robes too.

I have given small bots to some ladies and they love it as a perfume.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body.

But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...

WOW, What a Ride!"

Please note: IMHO and e&oe apply to all my posts.

That sounds lovely Don.  The lavender I have at the moment is not highly fragrant alas but has flowered well.
