We've been cleaning 24/7 at our house for the past few days (no, not because of the coronavirus) because of our upcoming move. Something about "spring cleaning" just feels really good .
One item I wished I had over the past few days is the Thieves Wipes. Young Living sells them pre-made and they are basically a natural plant-based alternative to Clorox wipes. I figured I might as well try DIY-ing some of my own for our next deep clean and with all the stress of the coronavirus I could use some extra cleaning wipes laying around, right?
Here's what you need:
-Thieves Cleaner OR Thieves Essential Oil
-Paper Towels OR reusable cloths
-Jar to store wipes
The recipe I used includes the Thieves Cleaner and paper towels so I will start with those instructions first.
Step 1: Roll out the amount of paper towels will fit into your storage container.
When I did this I simply ripped amount the amount of paper towels I thought would work, but I read afterwards that some people actually cut the paper towel roll in half. I think that would honestly work better than what I did! Try whatever you think is best!
Step 2: Pour 2 capfuls of Thieves Cleaner over the paper towels.
Step 3: Add water.
I guessed here with the appropriate amount. I didn't want the wipes to be too soggy and I was happy with how they turned out. Again, customize according to how many paper towels you are using and the size of your storage container.
Step 4: Let the mixture soak and then you're ready to use!
**I would recommend using old rags or dish cloths to make this DIY more sustainable and eco-friendly. The amount of Thieves Cleaner and water remains the same as the original recipe.
***If you use Thieves Essential Oil, I would recommend adding 30-50 drops of Thieves to make your DIY wipes. All the other instructions should remain the same as the original recipe.
