THIEVES CLEANING WIPES

CHEMICAL FREE


MANY YEARS AGO WHEN I HAD JUST FOUR VERY SMALL CHILDREN I WAS GOING THROUGH A LARGE BOX OF BABY WIPES EACH MONTH.   WE HAD FOUR CHILDREN UNDER FIVE AND THREE WERE IN DIAPERS.   THE COST OF KEEPING THEM CLEAN AND DRY WAS AGITATING MY THRIFTY SIDE.   


 AFTER FINDING A RECIPE FOR HOMEMADE BABY WIPES I STARTED MAKING MY OWN.   YOU ARE PROBABLY WONDERING WHY I AM TALKING ABOUT BABY BOTTOM CLEANING AND THINKING THAT YOU HAVE CLICKED ON THE WRONG  ARTICLE.  THE BABY WIPE RECIPE TRANSLATES TO A CLEANING WIPE ONE BY TWEAKING THE INGREDIENTS.  DO NOT USE THIS RECIPE ON YOUR BABY.   YOUNG LIVING SELLS A FABULOUS LINE OF BABY PRODUCTS UNDER THEIR SEEDLINGS LINE.   I WILL BE POSTING A BABY WIPE RECIPE LATER.


   

A WORD OF CAUTION WHEN MAKING THESE.  NOT ALL PAPER TOWEL IS CREATED EQUAL.  I HAVE BEEN BOUNTY LOYAL FOR MANY YEARS.  IT IS STURDY AND ABSORBENT MAKES A REALLY GOOD STRONG WIPE.  RECENTLY ANOTHER OPTION CAME INTO PLAY.  COSTCO STARTED MAKING THEIR OWN BRAND OF PAPER TOWELS.  I HAVE A NEW FAVORITE.  EITHER OF THESE WILL WORK BUT DO NOT BUY REALLY CHEAP PAPER TOWELS AND EXPECT TO HAVE A GOOD EXPERIENCE USING THEM WITH THIS RECIPE.


THE MAIN INGREDIENT APART FROM THE PAPER TOWEL IS THE THIEVES CLEANER AND THE OILS.   TO BUY THESE, CLICK ON THE ITEM ON THE LIST TO THE RIGHT UNDER THE " YOU WILL NEED" HEADING E TO GO TO MY OIL WEBSITE.   WHEN YOU GET THERE YOU CAN SCROLL DOWN ON THE FIRST PAGE AND SEE A PICTURE WITH AN ORDER BUTTON.  IF YOU CLICK ON THIS IT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE YOUNG LIVING WEBSITE WITH MY NUMBERS ALL READY PLUGGED IN.  FROM THAT POINT YOU CAN PURCHASE AS A RETAIL CUSTOMER OR BECOME A MEMBER. 


  DO NOT EVER BUY YOUNG LIVING OILS OR PRODUCTS FROM A THIRD PARTY ( AS IN ONLINE FROM A SITE THAT IS NOT YL).  WE DO NOT SELL THIRD PARTY AND THERE ARE UNSCRUPULOUS PEOPLE TAKING CAPS OFF OF OUR OILS AND RESELLING THEM MAKING THEM LOOK AS IF THEY CAME FROM YOUNG LIVING.   IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER COUNTRY YOU CAN STILL BUY THE PRODUCTS.  WHEN YOU GO TO THE YOUNG LIVING WEBSITE AND GET TO THE RETAIL OR MEMBER PART YOU WILL JUST NEED TO CHANGE YOUR COUNTRY.  


THE OTHER THINGS THAT YOU WILL NEED WILL BE A GLASS CONTAINER, A CHOPPING BOARD, A VERY SHARP CHEF'S KNIFE AND A PYREX MEASURING JUG.    USING A CHEF'S KNIFE IS BETTER THAN A SERRATED ONE AS IT MAKES LESS MESS.  THE SERRATED ONE LEAVES LITTLE FLUFFY BITS OF PAPER TOWEL EVERYWHERE AROUND THE CHOPPING BOARD 



THIS IS A VERY SIMPLE RECIPE


MEASURE  1 1/2 OF PURE WATER IN A GLASS PYREX JUG.


ADD 2 CAPS OF ULTRA CONCENTRATED THIEVES CLEANER, 2 DROPS OF LEMON OIL, 2 DROPS OF THIEVES OIL AND 2 DROPS OF PURIFICATION OIL.  STIR TO BLEND


PLACE PAPER TOWEL ROLL ON THE CHOPPING BOARD AND SLICE THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE ROLL.  GO SLOWLY AND GENTLY AND LET THE KNIFE DO THE WORK.  IF THE KNIFE IS SHARP IT WILL EASILY CUT THROUGH THE CARDBOARD MIDDLE.


PLACE ONE HALF IN THE GLASS JAR.  ( TAKE OFF LID FIRST)

DEPENDING ON THE PAPER TOWEL YOU MIGHT NEED TO WIGGLE THE ROLL AROUND TO GET IT IN THE JAR.


POUR  THE WATER/CLEANER/OILS MIX OVER THE TOP OF THE ROLL.  LET THE WHOLE THING SIT FOR 5 MINUTES AND THEN PULL OUT THE CARDBOARD MIDDLE.  


PULL OUT PIECES FROM THE CENTER AND DISTRIBUTE TO EACH FAMILY MEMBER AND TELL THEM TO CLEAN SOMETHING.  TADA!!!  THAT WAS SO EASY WASN'T IT!
