I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids.! My husband Tim is a Soldier on Fort Benning. I work for MWR for the Community Recreation Division as an admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing, she is in her 9th season (2017-2018) of being a competitive dancer. It's exhausting but we LOVE it. Cale is starting to REALLY get into sports. He is on a year round wrestling team, and he plays baseball in the spring! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too! On Valentines Day of 2017 we bought our first Travel Trailer. I'll be documenting our travels also on this blog!

homemade disinfection wipes

I used 2 xlarge t-shirts that had a design on the upper front part of the shirt - so I was able to use the whole back of the shirt and the bottom half of the front.  I got about 10-12 cloths out of each shirt depending on how I cut it.  Because I got a new serger 3 weeks ago I know serge EVERYTHING that I can. I serged the edges so they wouldn't unravel over time.

Here is all the ingredients I used to create the wipes.

1 1/2 cups HOT water
1/4 cup vinegar
few drops of dish soap
few drops of essential oil or in my case candle scent.
 I stuffed mine into the bucket so they would be easy to get out when I needed one. (this is my first set i realized after I mixed everything I had excess solution and needed that other shirt)
 Pour in your hot water and vinegar....
 add your few drops each of oil and dish soap
 And it's ready for use!


  1. Awesome! Great idea with the shirts. I have tons of shirts! can I use just a regular sewing machine on the edges?

    1. i hate that this thing doesn't tell me that i have a response! yes you could use a sewing machine! i had just gotten my serger at this point and i was REALLY excited to use it!
