We get into a rut some days when we go to the grocery store.  We bring home the same crackers for the kids, the same dinner ingredients we know they like, and even the same paper towels.  We shop with half our brain….rarely paying attention to what we grab to put in the cart.  One of the things I pick up when I go to the grocery store are natural saline wipes.  Why?  Because even though I don’t have babies, I still keep a pack of hand sanitizing wipes in my car.  I can’t stand the smell of gasoline on my hands after I leave the pump so keeping wet wipes in my car is a must.  Since I prefer to avoid the harsh chemicals if I can, I pay extra for the all natural ones.  After attending a #7DaySwitchUp blogger party for Viva® Vantage® recently, I started thinking maybe I needed to switch things up a bit! Maybe making my own DIY hand sanitizing wipes would be a better plan!

DIY Hand Sanitizing Wipes and a 7-Day Switch Up

DIY hand sanitizing wipes are a frugal way to keep your hands clean without the chemicals found in most hand cleaning products.


1 roll Viva® Vantage® ( you won’t need the whole roll!)
Plastic container with lid
1  cup water, boiled and cooled
2 TBSP aloe vera gel
1/4 cup witch hazel
10 drops essential oil of your choice


Combine water, aloe vera, witch hazel and essential oil in a glass bowl
Tear Viva® Vantage® off the roll and lay on top of each other.  Cut stack in half for smaller wipes
Place the paper towels in the plastic container.  Pour liquid over them.  Seal and let sit, flipping over to soak top layer, too.
Drain off the excess liquid and reseal container.
Will last 2 to 3 weeks before needing to be replaced.

Viva Brand Paper Towels

At the #7DaySwitchUp party I discovered that there were a ton of ways to use paper towels that I had never even thought of!  Cheap paper towels are just not worth the money you spend on them.  Having to use 2 thin, weak paper towels when you could just use one Viva® Vantage® is a waste of time and money!  Viva® Vantage® has great scrubbing power and it’s stretchy-strength takes scrubbing to a whole new level.  It is made from a revolutionary V-Flex™ Weave that has a sponge-like absorbency that will really tackle all of your paper towel needs! Viva® Vantage® was recently named a 2015 Product of the Year and I can definitely see why.  This is one paper towel that will stand up to a vigorous workout!

Here are a few of the #7DaySwitchUp tips I learned at our blogger party!

Ditch the bulky colander in favor of a paper towel. Place veggies and fruit on a sheet of Viva® Vantage® paper towels under a running faucet to function as a strainer; the stretchy-strength will keep the towel intact when wet.

Need to chill white wine quickly? Don’t dilute it with ice; wrap a damp paper towel around the bottle and put in the freezer to chill rapidly.

  1. Love this recipe and love these paper towels. After a major cleaning (and some major scrubbing) in our home reno, these towels held up like a pro and were ready to take on more. You can't ask for more than that!
