How to Make Homemade Hand Wipes



As a real esate professional, I spend a lot of my working hours in my vehicle. I'm in many different houses, working with many different people, shaking a lot of hands throughout the day.


Now I have to admit that I'm a slight germaphobe. My hands are so dry from the amount of times I wash them throughout the day. But when I'm out and about working, I'm not always close to a sink.


This is where hand sanitation wipes come in handy. But have you ever read the ingredients on those things? Which is worse - dirty, germie hands or chemical soaked hands? I'll choose neither, thank you.


So after some research, I've come up with a great homemade hand wipe recipe that's super easy and super inexpensive to make. These are great for washing on the go and they fit right into the console of my more dirty hands for me.


You don't need a lot of ingredients for this recipe and to make it easy for you, I've listed the ingredients below the video.


You may need to play with the soap portions. The first time I made this recipe I used 2 tbsps of Castile soap and found the wipes way to sudsy.


Also, you want to use a very strong paper towel brand. Otherwise, they'll just become sloppy towels that fall apart.


I'd love to know how you like this recipe so be sure to leave me a comment below...I read every single comment.




1 Tbsp of Liquid Soap - Castile Soap, Baby Wash, Hand Soap, Shower Gel, whatever you'd like to use.

1 Tbsp of Almond Oil - or any kind of oil you'd like. It's mainly for moisturizing

2 cups of warm water - boiled water is best (that's been cooled to warm)

1 Air tight container, about the same size as half a roll of paper towel

1 Roll of extra strong paper towels like Bounty

Essential Oils - I used quite a bit of Tea Tree Oil because it has disinfecting properties
