You can use washcloths, dish rags, old cut up t-shirts / sheets or other soft material. For the kitchen I purchased washcloths similar to these ones: Washcloths. These can be found on Amazon or you can also check out Walmart for some affordable dish rags.
After each use, run these through the wash, and repeat!!
What else to do you need?
Just some White Vinegar, Water and your choice of essential oils.

Homemade Cleaning Wipes
These homemade cleaning wipes have no harsh chemicals and make your house smell wonderful. You can make lemon for the kitchen, lavender for the bathroom, or orange for a mood booster in the office.
- 1 cups water
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 5 drops lemon essential oil
- 5 drops peppermint essential oil
- 8-12 washcloths / rags
- 1 large pickle jar / mason jar
Prepare cleaning solution
Combine water and vinegar in a bowl.
Add Essential oils to the water / vinegar mixture
Stuff 8-12 washcloths into your jar
Pour cleaning mixture into jar over the cloths
Push the cloths down to release the mixture from the top ones so the liquid makes it way to the bottom. Put lid on Jar.
Depending on the size of your jar, the amount of cloths used, and the time of year, you may need more or less cleaning solution.
How to use:
Use this wipes like you would store bought wipes to clean counters, dust, wipe down appliance, clean bathrooms.
You can also use cut up T-shirts / Rags in the place of the wash cloths. I like using these for the jars that I keep in the bathrooms for really dirty work since they are easily replaced once they get too dirty.
