How to Make Natural Disinfecting Wipes for Home Cleaning

塑料容器中的现成消毒纸巾可以非常方便地进行消毒和清除污点。我们家不再使用有毒的传统清洁剂了,and with a large family the cost of natural store-bought cleaners adds up fast.这些天然的消毒湿巾非常简单,很安全。effective solution to clean surfaces around the home.

用精油消毒湿巾

Many of my cleaning products (and beauty products) contain essential oils.When used properly,they can be potent germ killers that are still safe to use around little ones.All essential oils are anti-microbial to some degree,but lemon and tea tree are the most frequently used for cleaning.Both of these oils have a wide degree of safety for all ages when used as a surface cleanser.当这些精油混合在一起时,they may provide powerful protection against a wide array of pathogens,包括潜在的E.大肠杆菌MRSA,and salmonella.

Soap Is Safer

FDA最近决定禁止几种抗菌肥皂成分引起了很大的轰动!他们的决定是基于缺乏这些抗菌物质长期安全性的证据。与环保局合作,他们还发现了这些化学物质的一些潜在风险。

官方发布的声明还指出,证据表明,至少洗手,普通肥皂和水在正确使用时和抗菌肥皂一样有效。

Of course,表面消毒很重要,especially when it comes to surfaces touched by raw meat.其他类型的家庭清洁也需要比传统的肥皂和水多一点的动力。to respect thelevels of healthy bacteria in our home,我尽量少用消毒剂。

Castile肥皂和醋不是朋友

我非常相信醋的力量.A lot of cleaning recipes use vinegar as a disinfectant,but vinegar and soap do not mix when it comes to cleaners.因为这种天然消毒湿巾的配方也使用了蓖麻油肥皂来分解油腻的残留物,醋在这里不起作用。(Lisa Bronner,from the Dr.Bronner soap family,spells out why vinegar and soap don't work together as a cleaner在这篇文章中

酒精:不只是为了喝酒

因为这个食谱里没有醋,酒精代替消毒剂和脱脂剂。酒精蒸发得很快,allowing the cleaning solution to dry fast.(某些房间,like bathrooms,使用快干清洁剂有助于防止因潮湿表面引起的霉菌生长)。

很多人周围都有异丙醇或酒精,但是这个配方需要另一种酒精……伏特加!

Natural Disinfecting Wipes Recipe

自从有了孩子,I started making my own自制婴儿湿巾,因此,为我们的厨房创造天然消毒湿巾也是有意义的!我使用这些很舒服,使用这种天然消毒剂从来没有问题。Please note that these are not broad spectrum disinfectants like those used in hospitals and should not be treated as such.此配方专为家庭使用而设计,不作为皮肤消毒湿巾。

DIY Disinfecting Wipes Ingredients

材料

  • About 6 store-bought washcloths (the cheap,thin ones) or 12 large t-shirt fabric squares
  • 带可密封盖的玻璃容器(容量约为2夸脱)
  • 大搅拌碗

Instructions

  1. In a bowl add the soap,water,alcohol,and essential oils.Stir well to combine.
  2. 将两块抹布或织物方格放入玻璃容器中,然后将大约1/3的清洗液倒在上面。重复此过程,直到使用了所有布和溶液。(This approach guarantees evenly wet wipes.)
  3. 把盖子放在容器上,然后移动容器。把它倒过来再倒回去,以确保布完全浸透。

How to Use the Natural Disinfecting Wipes

  • 从容器中取出一块抹布,把多余的液体拧到其他湿巾上。用它来消毒和清洁房子周围的表面。
  • 因为这些天然消毒湿巾比商店买的一次性湿巾更结实,they hold up to scrubbing surfaces much better.
  • 在不显眼的位置测试任何新表面,如果有任何问题,擦拭会损坏待清洁的材料或表面。
  • To wash: Launder with other kitchen towels.I always keep a small laundry basket on hand in my pantry for towels and wipes.I wash them together in hot water with a splash of hydrogen peroxide and regular laundry detergent.

其他天然消毒剂随身携带

这些湿巾是我大多数厨房垃圾的去处。I also keep white vinegar and hydrogen peroxide on hand for big kitchen messes.

白醋

醋被用于食品保存有一个原因:它抑制细菌的生长。It isn't technically a disinfectant,但它也是一种有效的脱脂剂,具有一定的抗菌能力。I keep a bottle of white vinegar in a spray bottle in our kitchen for use on sticky messes,润滑油,and sometimes as a first pass on raw meat before using these wipes.

过氧化氢

另一种我放在厨房里的天然消毒剂是过氧化氢。I add a spray bottle top to a regular hydrogen peroxide bottle and use this to disinfect cutting boards and raw meat dishes before washing them regularly.We use食品级过氧化氢保持游泳池清洁without chlorine too!Now that I keep this 35% food grade peroxide on hand,我可以把注意力集中在厨房里。一定要把过氧化氢存放在深色不透明的瓶子里,以防在光线下分解。
