Do you love cleaning? If you answered yes, then I have a great DIY for you! If you answered no, then I have a great DIY for your kids! LOL
No worries about the kids handling harmful chemicals with these awesome DIY thieves essential oil cleaning wipes.
Have you ever read what Clorox wipes are made of? Probably not because there is no list of “ingredients” on the package. A quick google search leads us to the Environmental Working Group’s site detailing several possible ingredients that give them a D rating. Even the Green Works wipes get a score of 8 on the Think Dirty app (10 is the worst rating).
But you won’t have to worry at all about these wipes. The ingredients are all natural, so you don’t need to worry about toxic chemicals (or even just weird ingredients) being in contact with your family.
Before you make them, you’ll need a few supplies that you might not have on hand. The first one will be the actual wipes. You can opt for disposable ones like the ones pictured or you can try a reusable option.
- Here are the disposable ones (although it seems you can reuse them, though I’m not quite sure for how long).
- And here is a more durable and reusable option.
The exact jar in the picture is no longer on Amazon, but here are a couple of other, similar options.
And of course, you’ll need to have some thieves essential oil. If you don’t already have some, I would recommend getting one of the premium starter kits (PSK) from Young Living.
The diffuser PSK is the most popular kit and comes with a 5 ml bottle of thieves. If you want to go all in with thieves, you can also choose the thieves PSK. Click here or on the picture below for more info on how to get your PSK and start saving 24% on Young Living essential oils!
