I have a ton of fabric scraps and no idea what to do with all of them. I probably have at least two trash bags full of scraps! All sizes, big and little. I was trying to think of what I could use some scraps for and I came up with a great idea, kitchen wipes!
I stopped using paper towels a long time ago, I use rags now for cleaning and cloth napkins for eating. Sometimes I really just need something quick and convenient (and all natural) to clean up a mess or a spill. Quick and convenient is especially important now that I have an almost one year old running around.
I cut a bunch of rectangular pieces of organic cotton fleece, rolled them up, and put them into a glass mason jar. I then mixed one cup of warm water, a couple squirts of some Dr. Bronner's, and a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil. I poured the cleaning mixture over the towels, covered, and shook it up.
Luckily my counter needed some cleaning so I got to try one out. Perfect! I used a bit too much soap with this batch so I will use less next time, but it's a great green cleaning solution! You don't have to limit it to the kitchen, keep a jar in the bathroom or any other room in your house where you might need a quick clean up.
Once your towels are gone you can do a quick wash and fill them up again (or keep another supply on hand so you can refill while you wash)!
