DIY Decorated Clorox Wipes Container

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.

You know me, I hate to throw anything useful out.  I look for ways to reuse wipes containers. 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. Repurposed wipes containers – yea!

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.

Supplies

  • Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
  • Decorative paper  (I’ve also used wall paper cut-outs and recycled greeting card images)
  • Paper cutter or scissors
  • Decoupage glue
  • Sponge brush
  • Rubber Bands

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.

  1. Susan, I love using Clorox wipes, but always hid them below the sink. I just wasn’t fond of having them on my counter. Now, I can have them on my counter! I love that you used old cards and wallpaper. Now, each time you go to wipe up some yucky germs, you will have a good memory to think of and not germs! Smart girl.

  2. What a creative way to decorate those Clorox containers! We always keep a container of Clorox Wipes under every sink in the house. They are perfect for quick clean-ups! #client

    1. I’d carry a container strapped to my hip if I could figure out how to do that, David. Glad to meet a fellow focused-on-clean family.
