Thieves Cleaning Wipes

Thieves Cleaning Wipes

When my babies were little, I made my own baby wipes! What?! Huh? Yes, yes I did. I used to be that mom. {ahem}

Now, for several reasons I will share below, I’m trying my hand at some homemade wipes again. This time, they are for cleaning.

I will start off by admitting to you that I love clorox wipes. I mean, I really really love them. I pretty much clean my entire house with them. Yes I do.

I know, I know…there are harsh chemicals in them.

But, I can clean a nasty toilet and then just THROW THE WIPE IN THE TRASH. There is just something wrong about cleaning a toilet and then throwing that cleaning rag into the dirty laundry or even into the washing machine. I know people do it everyday and live to tell about it. But, not me. No thanks. Gross. I’m just weird and grossed out by toilets.

Enter my new obsession love for essential oils. Thieves, especially.

I tried the Thieves all-purpose cleaner months ago and was hooked.

But there are still toilets to clean.

Homemade Thieves Cleaning Wipes

Enter the need for a homemade cleaning wipe! In trying to rid my home of the bad chemicals that aren’t good for us, I’ve been replacing things like lotions, shampoos, household cleaners, and more.

It was time.

It’s so simple. It’s even easier than the homemade baby wipes I used to make!

All you need are paper towels, Thieves all-purpose cleaner, water and a  container to put them in!

Ingredients

  • Paper towel roll (cut it in half with a large kitchen knife, then pull out the cardboard center.)
  • 1 capful Thieves Household cleaner
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 round container (I cannot find the exact one I have on Amazon, but it is rubbermaid and the EXACT size for half of a paper towel roll. Maybe  around 7 inches in diameter.)

Directions

  1. Cut your paper roll in half. I used a large serrated kitchen knife. Saw through it. It will be a bit crumbly.
  2. Place one half the paper towel roll into the round container.
  3. Pour 1 capful of Thieves Household cleaner into 2 cups of water to mix together.
  4. Pour liquid mixture over the paper towels, making sure to get all of the top wet.
  5. Let the liquid soak into the paper towels. Place lid on when not in use.

That’s it! Can you believe how easy that is?

I'm just a messed up mama in need of God's fresh new mercies daily. My husband and I live in beautiful East Tennessee with our 3 children. God has taken me on a journey through the valley of depression and is teaching me to pray the Scriptures as a result. I hope and pray that you will be encouraged whenever you stop by this little place on the web.

  1. A coffee can works well for the round container needed/wanted. I might just try this again with a few drops of Thieves and water. It’s really pretty simple and awesome. Make sure you buy good quality paper towels though so that they don’t tear apart too quickly. And could you just use them on the toilet and use regular bar towels/hand towels with the mixture for other jobs that aren’t as gross/dirty? Just a thought, although I did use paper towels yesterday on my whole bathroom instead of a bar towel. 😉

    1. I bought it years ago and have been looking for another one the same size also! UGH! If I find another one I will come back and let you know. Other sizes would work (bigger than the paper towel roll) it just wouldn’t fit in as perfectly.

  2. I use a Folgers coffee PLASTIC with snap on lid and molded in handle…I use bounty towels since I get 2 per roll….I’m a Theives freak as well…I am a Young living member thru my niece. Thanks for spreading the good word!!

  3. I used to make my own wipes too, but I never could get it right! They would always turn into mush and fall apart 🙁 what kind of paper towels have you found hold up the best?
