Everyone is probably familiar with the pre-packaged sanitizer wipes. These wipes come in handy for picnics, day-to-day commuting in the car, in a diaper bag, when traveling, at school, the office or you name it. The possibilities are almost unlimited. However, one problem with using sanitizer wipes is they can be very hard on your skin. If you’ve ever used one of these commercial wipes, you’ve probably noticed how dry and awful your hands feel afterwards.
Fortunately, there’s a better solution. Not only is it more economical than purchasing premade wipes, but making your own homemade sanitizer wipes also allows you to control the ingredients. This simple recipe for sanitizer wipes uses essential oils that offer an incredible fragrance as well as antibacterial properties.
You can either use napkins that have been cut in half or some baby wipes. Find any type of plastic container with a lid that will hold your wipes. Stack the napkins or baby wipes up in the container. Next, combine 1-1/2 cups warm water, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1 tsp rubbing alcohol, 3 drops lemon essential oil and 3 drops lavender essential oil. Stir to combine well. Make sure the coconut oil is completely incorporated.
Once the mixture is well combined, pour it over the napkins or wipes in the plastic container. Close the lid and allow the solution to saturate your homemade sanitizer wipes. If you use 2 small containers rather than one large container for your wipes, you can easily carry one in your purse or diaper bag.
