I have a confession. I’m a bit of a clean freak. With 3 children, you can understand why keeping my home clean, removing dirt and germs is important to me. I can’t believe it’s already back-to-school time and that means that my children will be bringing grime and germs home with them. Yikes! To combat the invading dirt and germs, I like to keep a container of Clorox® Disenfecting Wipes on the counter in my kitchen and in the bathrooms so that it’s easy to keep my home clean. And because I like to keep things pretty in my home, I take a few minutes to make these easy decorated Clorox Disinfecting Wipes containers to match the decor in each room.
Being the kind of mama that likes to keep everything clean and germ-free, I keep a container of Clorox Disinfecting Wipes in the kitchen and every bathroom so there are no excuses for not cleaning up often.
The Clorox Disinfecting Wipes container is made from the recyclable number 2 class of HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) so it’s recyclable (which I love), but what I really like is to repurpose the containers. It’s really so easy to decorate the Clorox Wipes containers. The decorating possibilities are endless. When the containers are this pretty you can see why you’re happy to leave them out on your counter and show them off.
You know me, I hate to throw anything useful out. It makes me so happy that I can simply refill the container when it’s empty and reuse the decorated container over and over again.
While I was at Target for one of my weekly (and often twice a week) shopping trips, I picked up Clorox Disinfecting Wipes in the Wipes section of the cleaning products aisle. Because they work on all types of surfaces and are clear drying, I use Clorox Disinfecting Wipes for most of my cleaning tasks. They clean and disinfect at the same time, killing 99.9% of germs, including viruses that cause colds and the flu. They’re also effective against common bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus (Staph), Salmonella enterica and E. coli, making this clean freak mama sleep just a little better at night.
Supplies for Decorated Clorox Wipes Containers:
Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
Decorative paper (I’ve also used wall paper cut-outs and recycled greeting card images)
Paper cutter or scissors
Measure the decorative paper so that it is the size of the label that you’ll be covering. You can remove the label so that you can place smaller images on the white container. If you’re going to remove the label, plan so that your images can cover the glue line that held the label in place.
Apply decoupage glue to the back of the decorative paper and attach the paper to the container. Use rubber bands placed around the container to hold the paper in place while it dries. I always cover the front side of the paper with decoupague glue as well to protect it since I’ll be keeping the container in the kitchen or bathroom and it may be exposed to moisture.
Voila! In less than 10 minutes, you’ve created a personalized decorated Clorox Disinfecting Wipes container than you can have easily accessible in your home. Having the wipes readily available means it’s more likely that my family will help clean up.
Cute fish wallpaper cut-outs decorate the Clorox Disinfecting Wipes container that looks adorable in my children’s bathroom. Having the Clorox Disinfecting Wipes out on the bathroom counter encourages my children to wipe up the bathroom surfaces. The wipes are great for cleaning the counters, faucets, mirror, door handle, bathtub, shower, shower curtain and more.
This same container would be a fun and useful teacher gift. As a mom, I want to make sure that my children’s teachers have plenty of Clorox Disinfecting Wipes to clean and sanitize the classroom and to keep my children’s classroom environment healthier. A healthier classroom environment helps keep my children from bring germs home from school.
I was so charmed by the flowers on a greeting card I received that I knew I had to use the card to decorate a container to send with my oldest “baby” as she heads back to college this month. I want her to have Clorox Disinfecting Wipes readily available so that she and her roommates
can will clean and disinfect their room more often (a mama can hope!). With 4 girls living in a small dorm room, I know that germs are easily passed around via the surfaces in the room and I want to keep my “baby” healthy.
With 3 kids and 33 combined years of bringing germs home from school, I’m a big believer in cleaning and disinfecting the high-traffic areas where germs are most often spread – door handles, light switches, faucets and surfaces in the kitchen and bathrooms. Keeping a decorated Clorox Wipes container in out on the counter makes it easy to clean and disinfect at the same time. What’s your favorite use for Clorox Disinfecting Wipes?
I made this Personalized Repurposed Tin Can as a gift for a friend. It was fun making it for her and surprising her because she has never been able to find personalized items in the store with her name.
My friend, Cynthia at Feeding Big, created this lovely rustic vase. Isn’t it a charming and easy wine bottle to vase DIY project?
