Thieves Wipes

Do you have handy dandy cleaning wipes at home?

Don’t you love them!

Wouldn’t you love them even more if you made them and knew exactly what was in them!

It’s pretty easy and you’ll feel so much better about wiping down your surfaces!


What you’ll need:

roll of paper towels

1 1/2 cup water

1 capful Young Living Thieves cleaner

1 container big enough to fit paper towels




1 – First, you’ll need to remove the cardboard tube from the middle of your roll of paper towels. It takes a little patience and persistence.  I worked mine away from the towels and then pinched the cardboard and twisted and pulled.

2 – Measure the height of your container and cut the paper towels to fit. A serrated knife will do the job!



3 – Slide paper towels into your container.  You can use an old wipes container, a coffee container, anything you have on hand that will fit your paper towels. Depending on your container you may have to remove some to make it slim enough to slide in.

4 – Mix 1 1/2 cup water with 1 capful of Thieves cleaner and pour over towels. *Optional, you can add white vinegar or any other favorite cleaning product or essential oils.



5 – I chose to pop off my *grippers*.  My paper towels are not the same durability as store bought wipes so the grippers were too rough on my towels. In this instance its best to pick strong, durable paper towels.




Done! They smell like the great cinnamon, clove scent of Thieves Cleaner! They were so easy to make and I love having the cleaner I LOVE in handy wipes for a quick wipe down of all my surfaces!!

Happy Cleaning!!  (LOL, if you know me, you know that’s an oxymoron!!)
