Moreover, they come with harsh chemicals, which not only damages the furniture but also dries out the skin. These wet wipes definitely burn a hole into ones pocket as they get over easily and have to be bought again and again.

Here’s the list of ingredients with which you can create your own DIY wipes at home!

Things required:

* A canister with a plastic-lid

* Paper towel-roll

* A sharp knife or a pair of scissors

  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/4th rubbing alcohol
  • 1/4th cup of warm water
  • 1 teaspoon of liquid dishwasher
  • 10 drops of essential oil

Step 4 – Slowly pour the entire mixture onto the towels, making sure it reaches all ends and even at the bottom of the can. Once soaked, carefully remove the cardboard, which is placed in between the paper-towel roll and discard the cardboard.

Step 5 – Carefully, pull a paper from the middle of roll, from where you’ve discarded the cardboard. With the help of a scissor, make a small hole of about half centimeter at the centre of the plastic lid.

Step 6 – Put the lid back on the can and pull out the wet wipes through it.

PS: If the wipes are drying soon, keep spraying warm water inside the canister to keep them moist.

These are not only recommended for kitchen cook-tops but can be kept all around the house including your bedroom. Vinegar helps in cleaning up the mess and naturally kills germs, thus preventing molds. The essential oil maintains the balance of the skin and helps preventing it from drying.

These homemade wet wipes are affordable and helps one in long run without getting over soon.
