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.

    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.
