D.I.Y Santizing Wipes That Kills COVID-19

Empty supermarket shelves and long lines have left some people without hand sanitizer, soap, and disinfecting wipes.  There are Americans that are on a  budget without the means to stockpile, senior citizens, and those that didn’t think the Coronavirus was going to become a global pandemic.

If you have been left without or have simply run out, you can still make your own.  Its not as convenient but they will get the job done.

I tried a few recipes out and this is the one that works best.

You will need:

  • Wide mouth quart size mason jar
  • 20 – 25 pieces of pre cut cloth ( I used cotton t shirts that i cut into 10 X 10 inch squares )


  • 3/4 cup filtered water
  • 3/4 cup rubbing alcohol
  • 15 drops lemon essential oil
  • 8 drops lavender essential oil
  • 4 drops bergamot essential oil


Combine all of your liquid ingredients into the mason jar and place the lid on top.  Gently shake the jar to mix all of the ingredients together.  Remove the lid and add the cloth pieces.  Press them down firmly so that they soak up all the liquid. Place the lid back onto the jar and store in your kitchen, bathroom, or where ever you use your wipes the most.

To Use:

Remove cloth from jar and wring excess liquid out.  Wipe down surfaces as needed.  You can toss the used wipes into your laundry to be re used when needed.
