And soak in Isopropyl Alcohol instead of water.

Beats trying to find Lysol or Clorox in the stores now.

That's what we've been doing, too.  Exactly.  And it works well.

I tried it today (been wanting to) with a 50 pack I had opened.
Yes, works great.

So I ordered some more.
Currently ck'in our GHB to see if there is alcohol in it. I know the towels are.

I bought several different brands to try out and they all appear to be about the same in terms of size and material, which is surprisingly tough.

That size I linked to which I just ordered, are 9.5x9.5, a good size. Hopefully they are tough like they advertise.

I do the same for wilderness walks.  Good for cleaning up and, if alchohol content is great enough, they can serve second duty as fire starters when opened up.

I suppose we could do the same with non scented baby wipes.
Fill, soak for ??, then pour out excess.
