We must apologize for our absence these past few weeks!!  Tami is once again back to work and as many of you know, going back to school means adjusting to a whole new schedule (and way of life!!).  I think we are finally back on track after a few weeks of being a little hazy and very tired.  Much caffeine was required!!  We couldn't go any longer without sharing this great recipe with you!

Recently I was talking to my sister-in-law, and I was sharing with her a little about our blogging adventures.  I was telling her about the homemade detergent & glass cleaner; well, she said that she makes her own antibacterial cleaning wipes! So, of course, we had to make some and share the results with you. I did try it (both anti-bacterial & the bleached wipes), and I really do like them; plus they are so much cheaper! You can buy generic wipes at most super stores.  However, I didn't make it to our local super store.  I bought my wipes at a local store called Marc's (generic - 80 wipes for $1.79/each). Most small generic tubs of antibacterial wipes are only 45 wipes and with no coupon cost over $2.00!  Here is the exact recipe from Pamela, my sister-in-law.  Try it and let us know what you think!


The best value and the thickest cloth that I have found is the Value brand from Walmart. You can experiment with what you like best. This is a money saver, because there are many more wipes in the baby container.

1.  Fill the container with water and let the wipes soak for 10 minutes. 

2.  Drain the water, take the wipes out, and squeeze them dry.  Then repeat this process. 

3.  When the "baby wipe smell" is gone, remove the wipes from the container and set to the side. 

4.  Fill the container 1/3 of the way with water.

5.  Add 1/4 cup of all purpose anti-bacterial cleaner.   I used Mr. Clean but generic would work as well. 

6.  Mix the water and cleaner, and then put the wipes back in. 

7.  Let these soak overnight, and then drain the extra fluid.

8.  The wipes are ready to use.

*I also make bleach wipes using 2 tbsps of bleach instead of cleaner. You can also make windex wipes using Windex with the same process!
