These past few years have made us all more aware of washing our hands with soap and water, or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, especially when traveling. Unfortunately single-use wipes are polluting our planet, but like many disposable products, it’s easy to make your own. Learn how to make your own reusable wipes, and brush up on how to sanitize effectively:

Make your own sanitizing wipes

Here is an inexpensive DIY alternative to sanitizing wipes:


Learn how to sanitize correctly

Using sanitizing spray that you wipe off of your high-touch surfaces isn’t effective unless you leave the product on the surface for several minutes, and let the sanitizer dry on the surface. This is known as dwell time: the amount of time the sanitizer needs to remain on the surface to kill the virus. Disposable wipes are not only wasteful, but they dry out quickly, making them only mildly effective.

Sanitize often

Use your reusable wipes often in your home for high-touch surfaces like doorknobs, light switches and phones. When you leave your house, slide your container in your bag so you have wipes with you when soap and water is not available. Use on your steering wheel, shopping cart and stroller handles—and of course your hands. When you are finished using your reusable cotton wipes, toss them in the wash, soak in sanitizer, store in your airtight container, and reuse!
