The kids went back to school yesterday and while it is nice having some peace and quiet around the house I have to tell you that trying to get into a routine in the morning where everything is not complete chaos can be a real headache. Everyone is in such a rush to get out the door to the bus and the train that I am left staring at a table covered with the remnants of partially and fully eaten breakfasts that are usually sticky, icky messes. Honestly, that is why I am so glad that I have my DIY Household Cleaning Wipes made with Viva Vantage Paper Towels.
The Viva Vantage Paper Towels are Viva’s newest paper towels and what makes these towels so great? It’s the V-Flex Weave that they have. It helps the towels to be able to stretch and scrub while maintaining the softness you’d expect form a Viva paper towel. Another plus is that you can get these Viva® Vantage Paper Towels in Choose-A-Size™ rolls. Having the ability to use a small sheet for tiny jobs or more for the bigger jobs is perfect for me.
Earlier this week I made some DIY Household Cleaning Wipes in preparation for back to school. I wanted to be able to quickly and easily clean up after everyone left in the morning but I also wanted to be able to start tackling some of the bigger cleaning projects that I need to face but couldn’t with a houseful of kids all summer long. Making these DIY household cleaning wipes is so ridiculously easy that you will never want to waste your money on the store-bought ones again.
This is often what my tables look like after any of my children have eaten there. Someone please tell me that I am not the only one whose children never seem to eat over their plate?
Getting rid of the mess is easy with my DIY Household Cleaning Wipes made with Viva Vantage.
The chemical free wipes made with Viva Vantage Paper Towels with V-Flex Weave made cleanup a snap! Thanks Viva for making a sponge like paper towel that can really scrub.
1 roll of Viva Vantage Paper Towels
1 4-5 qt. cylindrical container with a lid (I used a 4qt.)
3 c. white vinegar
3 c. filtered water
10 drops of lemon essential oil
- Remove the roll of paper towels from it’s packaging. Place the paper towels into the container. If using the smaller size you may need to squeeze a bit and push to get it in.
- Mix together the vinegar, water and lemon essential oil. Pour the mixture over the paper towels.
- Cover with lid and let sit overnight. In the morning open the top and gently pull the cardboard tube from the center of your paper towels. It should come out easily.
- Pull the towels form the center as needed to clean life’s large and small messes with ease.
Be sure to grab some Viva® Vantage Paper Towels the next time you are shopping at Wal-Mart so that you can also make your own DIY Household Cleaning Wipes that work great, are safe around kids and pets and have great stretch and scrubbing action thanks to the Viva Vantage Paper Towels.
