Paper towels are so versatile that having at least a few rolls in the cabinet under your kitchen sink is a must. Not only do they handle quick cleanups when the kiddos spill some juice or the dog tracks mud on the kitchen floor, but paper towels are also used in several life hacks that can make them even more useful.
In this life hack video by YouTuber KGB Survivalist, the host demonstrates yet another use for paper towels in and around the house: DIY cleaning wipes!
Using just a roll of paper towels (you’ll actually only end up using about a third of the roll), a plastic Ziploc container, and some Pine-Sol cleaner, you’ll be able to make your very own cleaning wipes that will save you some money in the long run.
All you have to do is cut a small “X” in the top lid of your Ziploc container and place that on the side. Then you place your roll of paper towels into the container and mark a line on the paper towel roll just below the top of the container. Once you have your mark, you’ll use a saw (or a bread knife will even work) to cut the roll of paper towels.
Next, take the small end of your paper towel roll (that you just cut) and place it inside the Ziploc container. Now all you have to do is pour in the Pine-Sol until the paper towels are soaked and you’ve added just enough to cover the bottom of the container.
Wait a few minutes and then you’ll be able to pull the small roll out of the middle of the paper towels. Then reach into the middle and pull up the first paper towel. Slip it through the “X” in the Ziploc container’s lid, and you’ve got your very own DIY cleaning wipes ready to use any time you need them.
This is a great life hack and a pretty universal way to make DIY cleaning wipes. If you don’t want to use Pine-Sol (or any other harsh chemical), you can find recipes online that show you how to use white wine vinegar or other items to make cleaning wipes as well.
I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely going to make a few containers of these.
