You may ask why use a wipe and not just a spray and a dry cloth? When you spray and wipe with a dry cloth you are essentially immediately soaking up all of the liquid you just applied to the surface. To do its job a cleaner, disinfectant or sanitizer needs to have Dwell time. Dwell time gives the liquid time to interact and react with the surface to do its job. Now think of a wet wipe as an applicator that leaves a thin film of liquid evenly distributed across the surface and providing the Dwell time needed to go to work.
Furthermore, another great benefit of using a wipe is the fabric picks up the foreign matter on the surface allowing the sanitizer to be layered over a clean surface This process helps by reducing solvent waste and increasing cost efficiency while being more effective.
You decide on the solution that you add to make surface disinfecting wipes, surface cleaning wipes, Sanitizing wipes, glass and mirror cleaning wipes, hand wipes, baby wipes or even just water to have a fresh towel on the face when you want it – it’s all up to you to decide – you Do it Yourself!

Before you start you need to know the difference between, cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing.
Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using a cleaning agent such as soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of cross contamination.
Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This process works by either cleaning or disinfecting surfaces or objects to lower the risk of spreading infection.
So how do you make wet wipes? Start with a Roxton canister of dry DIY wipes and create your own wiping system using everyday liquid products you have on hand, or take a look at our Concrobium Thyme based disinfectant or some of our other cleaning products.
Then simply label the container clearly so all know the contents, but remember – KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN. When making hand wipes you can add your favourite non active fragrances or essential oils to create your own unique experience.
WARNING: Never mix different types of active chemicals as adverse reactions can occur. It is recommended to follow the directions and warnings for use on the bottles of liquid that you are using to produce your wet wipes. Depending on the solution used, gloves, masks, shields, or goggles may help protect you from injury from using these chemicals. You should always refer to the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) before you use or dispose of any chemicals, your supplier should provide you with the SDS at your request.
