Cheeky Wipes as reuseable anti-bacterial kitchen wipes

Kitchen dishcloths freak me out a bit.  Unless you're really careful to dry them after every use and bleach regularly, they can end up being pretty stinky.  The thought of people wiping their childrens faces with a dishcloth makes me want to puke (but I have seen it done!).

That's why many big brands have jumped on the band wagon with anti-bacterial washing up liquids.  If you look carefully, they state that they are only anti-bacterial when applied directly to the cloth - not on your dishes as many people think. 

We've always used Cheeky Wipes to give a quick clear up after meal times, but recently we've started soaking some wipes just for clearing up after meals .  It means you don't have to use sprays or <horror> disposable kitchen wipes.

Here's what we do differently:

Soaking Method (alternative to 'flash' type wipes)

  • Fill a mucky box (or clean box) with 400ml water and 8 drops of teatree & teatree lemon 'mucky' essential oil (you could do 100ml of white vinegar and 300ml of water if you want to be more heavy on the anti-bacterial side)
  • soak  approx 10 microfibre wipes at a time in the solution
  • Use after meals to clean table and worksurfaces
  • Rinse off any lumps of food under a cold tap
  • wash and re-use

 Spray Method (great if you want to up the anti-bac qualities!)

  • Fill an old spray bottles with 50% water, 50% white vinegar and 20 drops of teatree & teatree lemon oil
  • keep your microfibre wipes on hand in a cheeky wipes box
  • Use after meals to clean table and worksurfaces
  • Rinse off any lumps of food under a cold tap
  • wash and re-use
At Cheeky Wipes HQ we generally prefer the 'soaking' method as it means you've got wipes on hand, ready for use.  They can also double up as hands & faces wipes if you've run out of fresh ones!
