Can’t Find Disinfecting Wipes? Here Is A DIY Recipe

It has been months since I have been able to purchase disinfecting wipes.  I have gone to every store, and either I miss it by a few minutes, or they have been out for quite some time.  I found great homemade disinfecting wipes from My Heavenly Recipes, and it seems so simple.  I felt like there might be other people that might be in need.  The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mentions that “transmission of coronavirus occurs much more commonly through respiratory droplets than through objects and surfaces, like doorknobs, countertops, keyboards, toys, etc. Current evidence suggests that SARS-CoV-2 may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings.”


  • 2 cups Distilled water
  • 1 cup Isopropyl alcohol at least 70-91% concentration
  • 1 TBSP Dawn dish soap
  • 3 drops Tea tree oil (optional)
  • 1 Paper Towel Roll


  • Cut your paper towel roll through the middle with a serrated knife.
  • Flip them over and stick into a jar or previous Lysol/Clorox wipes box.
  • Mix together the water, rubbing alcohol, and dawn dish soap.
  • Pour around the edges of the paper towel roll. Let it soak in for 2 minutes.
  • Pull the middle paper towel roll out and throw away. Now you can pull from the middle.
  • Store in a closed container with lid.
