Step 1: Open Disinfectant Wipe Container

Make sure there is cleaning solution left over.

Step 2: Add Paper Towels

Add your favorite paper towels. They will soak up the liquid, but continue to add until you're sure it is all absorbed. Sometimes you may have room for 10 - 20, depending on the amount of liquid you have left.

Step 3: Clean

Use the towels to clean any messes you would have used the disinfectant wipes to clean. When the container is empty, look for other ways to recycle it!
