As coronavirus hysteria rises, people have begun stockpiling essentials like food, toilet paper, medications, and of course, soap, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes. So many fear that they may be put on quarantine and be unable to buy anything they need, hence all of the panic-buying.
The problem is that stockpiling only benefits those who managed to shop ahead of time, leaving store shelves empty for those who didn’t buy in advance or shop on a more weekly basis.
How to Make All-Purpose Wipes ? Mix together : 2 cups warm water - 1 tablespoon of liquid soap - 1 cup rubbing alcohol (at least 70%, but 90% is better) - 10-15 drops essential oils (optional) – Rosemary, lavender, lemon, or peppermint work great, but most will work well.
Place the paper towel roll in a container that just fits it, like a large glass cylinder container that was intended for food storage.) You want a fairly tight container without much space around the paper towels, so they will absorb the liquid. Pour the soap and alcohol mixture over the paper towels. Pull the cardboard tube out—it should come out easily.
Now you can remove one paper towel at a time, starting from the center.
