your own travel hand wipes
You know those
little packages of wipes you get fried chicken restaurants?
And often you think how convenient those would be to carry
around, without having to use baby wipes? What you can make
your own, similar to how you can make your own baby wipes.
¼ cup water
¼ cup vodka (plain, not one of the new flavoured kinds!)
2 tbsp lemon juice
Paper towels or shop towels, the thicker the better, each
sheet folded in half
Zip lock freezer bag
In a small bowl,
combine the the water, vodka and lemon juice. Then in a 9
x 12 cooking pan, lay a single layer of folded paper towels.
Pour a small amount of the mixture over top, then add another
layer paper towels and repeat. Once the mixture is almost
gone, flip the stack over so the top can absorb the last bits
of liquid in the bottom, then seal in the Ziploc freezer bag.
It is important to use a freezer bag, as is much harder to
puncture and make a mess.
