      DIY Disinfecting Wipes & More with Step by Step Instructions. 1. Cut your paper towel role length wise so it will fit nicely in the plastic container you’ve selected. I used a large serrated knife and it cut through the paper towels just fine! 2. Next you will need to cut a hole in the top of the plastic lid so you can easily pull the paper towels or should I say, disinfecting wipes, out. I asked my husband for a 1/2″ drill bit and used that. But because the plastic you are cutting through is so thin, I think a knife or even sharp scissors will work just as well. Just be careful and use a cutting board. 3. Mix your desired solution. Here are several recipes you can use: Disinfectant Cleaning Recipe (this is the one I used): 1/4 – 1/2 cup of pine cleaning solution such as Pine Sol 2 1/2 – 2 3/4 cup of water General Cleaning Surface Recipe: 1 1/2 cups white vinegar 1 1/2 cups water Optional: A few drops of favorite scented essential oil to cut the vinegar smell Window Glass Cleaning Recipe: 1/2 cup of rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol 2 1/2 cups water 1 tablespoon white vinegar (source) 4. Once you have your solution mixed and your paper towel roll set in the plastic container, pour the solution over the paper towels. Put the lid back on the plastic container and allow them to sit overnight. 5. Once the towels have sat overnight, then the cardboard tube in the center of the paper towel roll should easily come out (See the bottom right photo above). 6. Carefully pull the end of the paper towels from the inside, where the cardboard roll had been. Thread the end of the towels through the hole in the lid, and replace the lid. TA DA! You know have your own household cleaning wipes. As I mentioned early, I was skeptical of this project and didn’t know if was worth the time it took to cut and drill but it really is simple to do and you can reuse the container over and over again.
