1/2 roll BOUNTY paper towels (the others turn to mush)
2 and 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup bleach
Cut BOUNTY in half with serrated or electric knife.Place cut side down in airtight container. Boil water, add bleach, pour over paper towels. Remove wet cardboard tube. To use, pull out wipes one at a time from center.
I use a Folger's plastic coffee can for my container. It's the PERFECT SIZE! To use: fill with cold water and 1/4 cup white vinegar and let sit overnight, this removes the coffee smell.

I play online scrabble and one of the ladies who knows I like thriftyfun.com gave me an emergency tip. She ran out of Clorox Cleanup so she put 1/4 cup of Clorox in a spray bottle with 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap, she then filled the bottle with water. She says it's as good as, if not better than the product which costs about 4 bucks a bottle. This one costs pennies.

I mix water, Dawn dish liquid and bleach. Mostly water, not too much Dawn and just enough bleach to smell. Sorry I can't be more exact, but I do adjust the ingredients to the purpose.
