What You Will Need

  • ½ Roll of Bounty Big, Jumbo or Other mid-size Bounty Roll Paper Towels
  • 1 Container (we use Rubbermaid 3qt #6) or Dollar General’s Sun Oxygen Cleaner bucket or a large ice cream bucket
  • 2 cups of disinfecting solution


  1. Cut a roll of Jumbo Roll Bounty in half with a straight edged knife or electric knife.
  2. Pull out the center cardboard tube. It is important that you use the right size Bounty Towels.
    • Other brands of paper towels just do not hold up with the moisture.
    • The Basic does not soak up all the water and the Mega is too thick and needs additional water.
  3. Dilute Solution as directed on Bottle = 2 tablespoon (1 ounce) per gallon of water
    • *We add 2 extra tablespoons of Chlorhexidine per gallon when making wipes
    • *We recommend mixing one gallon at a time. Extra can be used for cleaning.
  4. Pour half your water mixture into your container, add towels, and then pour the other half of mixture over top. Put the lid on the top and let it sit for at least 20 minutes for the water to absorb through the towels evenly.
  • We use the wipes to clean up after all forms of body excretions as well as to clean the bathroom etc.
  • We’ve never tested bacterial efficacy but it has to be better than soap and water Smile
