Homemade re-useable cleaning wipes save so much money! Video instructions show just how easy they are to make.
I’ve created a DIY Cleaning Wipes Video to show you just how quickly and easily you can make your own cleaning wipes.
This cleaning wipes recipe can be made with just three ingredients: Castile soap, vodka, and water.

Why use vodka instead of vinegar in your cleaning wipes recipe? Castile soap will interact with vinegar and leave a harmless white film on your surfaces.
Castile soap and water are truly the only two ingredients needed to get surfaces clean.
But if you want to up the cleaning and disinfecting power of your wipes, add in the vodka and lemon essential oil. You only need a few drops of the oil to boost cleaning power and add a lovely scent.
If you have an old t-shirt, you can cut it into strips to use as cleaning rags. However, I would recommend microfiber cloths.
Microfiber cloths can be purchased in bulk here, or as I show in the video, you can pick up a pack of 4 microfiber washcloths from Dollar Tree for just $1.

The reason I use microfibers is all the millions of fibers on the cloth. Think of it like “many hands make light work.” The numerous fibers work to pick up dirt and dust better than an ordinary cloth.
Re-Useable wipes work exactly like the disposable kinds.
To clean and remove allergens, use a fresh wipe on the surface. For stubborn stains, rinse your wipe with hot water and scrub the spot again.
For surfaces that come in contact with food, use only on hard non-porous surfaces and be sure to rinse thoroughly with hot water.
I’ve safely used these wipes on my laminate counters and my man-made stone counters.
BTW: I didn’t actually do any measuring in this video. I’m lazy about doing extra dishes and have become quite good at eye-balling amounts I add to my wipes. That said, I went a little heavy on the Castile soap in the video. If that happens, just wipe it down a second time with water. Bonus! Your counters will be extra clean!
