I doubt this is even close to an exact equivalent, but it works in our home. I use inexpensive, plastic spray bottles that you can buy from the dollar or discount store and fill them with one part Clorox (or one part straight Lysol cleaner, which ever you prefer) with three parts water. Label the spray bottles clearly and keep a roll of paper towels and a spray bottle in each bathroom, the kitchen and an extra one in the pantry (and of course out of the reach of small children or pets.) Shake well before using.

Remove the cardboard tube from the center of a roll of papet towels. Then cut the roll in half and insert the roll in a large can with lid (i.e. a large plastic coffee container would be good). Using the mixture propertions posted by KansasCindy add to the container with the roll of paper towels.


Don't get it too wet, you just want to dampen the towels. Pull the center towel out a little so you can get hold of it when you are ready to use. Place the lid on the can and let it set for at least a day, giving time for the towels to absorb all the liquid. When the pulled towel feels just damp they are ready to use.
