DIY DISINFECTING WIPES

SUPPLIES NEEDED

Container with lid at least 6″ tall & 6″ wide (any shape will do)
A serrated bread knife (Ginsu is my go-to!)
1/4 cup Isopropyl Alcohol (I use 91%)
1 teaspoon Dawn dish soap (brand matters in this case)
1 cup water High quality paper towels (don’t go with a bargain brand for this purpose)
Optional: Con-tact chalkboard liner to label container

LET’S MAKE IT!

Cut paper towel roll in half with serrated knife.

Stuff half of cut roll in dedicated container. Don’t worry if it seems like it doesn’t fit- it will!

Mix water, alcohol and dishsoap together in a measuring cup & stir gently.

Pour mixture over paper towels in container. 

Wait a few minutes for the cardboard roll to become pliable then remove it.

Removing the cardboard roll will bring the first few paper towels from the center of the roll up.

Press paper towels down into container if necessary & cover with lid. 

Label container. I used Contact-paper chalkboard shelf liner to label the container, but a permanent marker will do the trick too.

I found your blog, that seems to have all the info I’m needing, YESTERDAY!
I am raising my 2nd flock of hens. I am fighting what I thought was a hen with PASTY BUTT. I have cured Pasty Butt before in chicks, by gently washing off the poop and feeding them oatmeal oats sprinkled on plain yogurt kept their tiny feathered butts clean 🙂
But after reading your article on a hens vent…I’n not sure what I’m dealing with,
I think I really need to win your prize today!!! Hoping I win!!!!
