Cleaning Wipes

Use a round plastic container (or old baby wipes container), drill hole in lid about 1/2 inch (don't need to do this if you use an old baby wipes container), get an extra large roll of good paper towels cut in half to make two small rolls (leave plastic covering on while doing this, electric knife works best)! Place one of the small rolls in plastic container. Save the other as a refill or make both.

Cleaning Wipes Cleaning solutions

General Surface Cleaning
1 1/2 cups white vinegar
1 1/2 cups water

Window and Glass Cleaning
1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
2 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon white vinegar

Pour one solution on top of the roll in the container. Place lid on container, allow paper towels to absorb the solution for 4 hours to overnight. Open storage container and take out the wet cardboard tube from the center of the paper towel roll and toss. Now thread the inside of the paper towel roll where the card board was through the hole in the lid and close lid. After awhile paper towels may dry out, if so add more of the solution and let sit overnight before using again.

I personally use clean rags cut into squares. Accordion fold to use container as above. Wash after use and return to container. More eco & budget friendly
