Lysol has been around since 1889, and while their products have always been popular, the company received a huge sales boost in 2000. The reason? The introduction of pre-moistened cleaning wipes. No longer was it necessary to track down a spray bottle of disinfectant or paper towels to clean up quick messes. Instead, you simply pop the top on your canister of Lysol wipes and voilà! No mess and no hassle. In the hustle and bustle of today’s culture, they quickly became a household staple.
However, as great as Lysol wipes are, they’re also on the expensive side. While it’s best to purchase them in bulk, at an average of $9 - $10 per pack of three, a single canister will set you back $4 - $5. Sure, we love convenience, but we also love our hard-earned money, which is why we had to share this life hack from YouTuber Do It On A Dime. With just two common items, you can make your own cleaning wipes at home, for a fraction of the cost. This is definitely going on our list of favorite household tricks – check it out.
