Take these......

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.
