We present you two alternatives of a hygiene solution recipe that can be used to prepare wet wipes. Both formulas can be used both for wipes and as a rinsing-free hygiene solution.
|Phase||Ingredients for ~ 50 wipes (375 ml)||%||Quantity|
|A||gentle washing base||2,5||9,4 gr|
|A||calendula oil||3||11,2 gr|
|B||flat mineral water||92,7||347,6 gr|
|B||grapefruit seed extract||1||3,8 gr|
Sanitize the dedicated containers and utensils you will work with, details in the general safety guidelines.
Prepare the napkins by ripping them from the roll and folding them in two, piece by piece, or folding them in four depending on the shape of the box you have available. The napkins folded and stacked on top of each other will be placed in the dedicated box.
In a glass or bowl, of at least 400 ml, add the ingredients of phase A and mix very well. Then add the ingredients of phase B one by one and mix thoroughly, avoiding excessive foaming.
The obtained solution is poured slowly and evenly over the napkins so as to be distributed over their entire surface; Soon all the wipes will soak. Being a biphasic solution, the ingredients tend to separate in a short time, so mix well the composition just before pouring on the napkins. pH:~ 7
Wet wipes prepared this way can be used like the usual ones on the market, but, depending on the type of paper, they can rip more easily. Keep the box closed to prevent the wipes from drying out.
This solution can be stored in a bottle, and can be used practically by soaking a napkin before application. Shake the bottle before use.
