Homemade Disinfectant Wipes

Homemade Disinfectant Wipes

Here’s the step by step instructions.

Take a roll of Bounty or Viva or higher quality paper towels and cut the roll in half, using a knife.

Place half of the roll of paper towels in an airtight container.

In a separate bowl, combine

1 1/2 cups warm water

2 tablespoons white vinegar

1 1/2 tablespoons Dawn dish soap

Then pour all ingredients over the 1/2 roll of paper towels.

Seal up the container and flip upside down until the paper towels are fully saturated.

Once they are fully saturated, you can can easily remove the roll from the center of the paper towels.

These are so inexpensive and are wonderful for that deep clean or that simple wipe-down.  I use them all the time now.

So, if you’re looking for a great alternative to the high priced or not so effective wipes, try out this simple recipe.

Upcycle~ Record Bowls

How to make a record bowl

Step 1

Assemble the records you want to upcycle. If you don’t have any oldies lying around then head over to your local thrift store and grab some for around a dollar a piece. We selected the classics: Madonna, Wham, Olivia Newton John and Swing Gently with Strauss.

(The latter apparently was not a hit sensation.)

Step 2

Preheat your oven to 100-120°C. That’s 200-250°F. Place an oven safe bowl, mug or metal colander on a baking sheet.

Step 3

Place your record on top of the oven safe bowl and put it in the oven. The side of the record placed directly on the colander will become the inside of the bowl. Bake your record for a few minutes and remove from the oven when the record starts to wobble and melt.

Step 4

Your record will be malleable for a few seconds only so work quickly, bending and pinching as you see fit. Careful, the record will be hot to the touch! If you want the record to stay still while you work, secure it to the bowl with a stick.

Step 5

You can hand mould your record bowls or push them into another bowl to form a new shapes.   This is the time to experiment and try out new techniques. If you don’t like the results you can always pop your record back into the oven and melt the mistakes away.

Well done, you now have some rocking record bowls!
