Instructions for Solution:
Step 1: Mix ingredients and whisk together.

Instructions for wipes:
Step 1: Cut your fabric into 8.5” squares
Step 2: With right sides together, pin or clip the pieces together, leaving a 3” gap for turning.
Step 3: Using a ¼ inch seam allowance, sew around all 4 sides except for the gap.
Step 4: Clip off the corner and turn the square right side out. Using a pencil or a chop stick, push out the corners.
Step 5: Iron flat and using a ¼ inch seam allowance, top stitch around all four sides of the square. This will also close the gap you used for turning.
Step 6: To keep the square from twisting when you wash it, sew either an “X” or 3 lines across it.
