Sustainable Hacks: How to Make Reusable Cleaning Wipes

Our sustainable hacks are back! I’m pleased to see many of you love learning sustainable ways to clean your house or store food without using plastic. I think it’s always a good card in your sleeve to know DIY methods of doing the most common things. Today, our sustainable hack is how to make reusable cleaning wipes!

What You’ll Need

Rubbing alcohol, or surgical alcohol (witch hazel could also work)

Dishwashing soap

Essential oil (lemon would work amazingly)

10 Washcloths (you can make your own by cutting up old rags)

A glass jar big enough to contain the washcloths


  1. After collecting your washcloths, place them all inside the glass jar;

  2. In a bowl, mix the alcohol, dishwashing soap and a few drops of essential oil

  3. Pour the content of the bowl into the glass jar

  4. Close the lid and let it sit for a few minutes before using your first washcloth

The washcloths can be washed in the washing machine and reused as you please. Simply, refill the glass jar with the alcohol mix every time you run out of washcloths.

Make sure to only use the washcloths on surfaces that won’t be ruined by the alcohol.
