DIY Cleaning Wipes

Save money and ditch the chemicals in cleaning wipes by making your own use wash clothes, castille soap and essential oils. For measurements and essential oil recommendations visit my blog post!
Add water to a glass jar.
Slowly pour in the castille soap.
Add a few drops of your essential oils.
Add your cut up towels or washcloths.
Turn the jar upside down to make sure the towels get soaked with the solution.
Use the towels to clean your surfaces around the house!

    Would you have a recipe for Baby Wipes. I opened a pack that was plastic
    wrapped and the wipes were totally dry. Thanks for any help.

      The DIY recipe above is very good. You could also just add some water to the dry wipes to not waste the ones you have.

    I've read several places that many insects don't like peppermint either. Also that you can put dried peppermint around the entrances of your home, and it will keep out flies and such.

      I read somewhere that Irish Spring soap keeps mice away. We've always had mice in the winter and nothing I tried worked. I was told to use dryer sheets...that didn't work. I read on face book that Irish Spring Soap would keep them away. So far this winter, I've only heard and seen ONE little tiny one which somehow got into my tall kitchen trash can. I shredded some of the soap into the can and haven't see/heard it again. I did cut chunks of the soap and placed them all around the baseboards and so far, I haven't heard or seen any signs of them this winter. Maybe it will work for the rest of you as well.
