Prepare the old food jar by cleaning previous contents. I used a 32-ounce jar for this recipe but you can make more to fit the size jars you have on-hand.
Use a razor blade to scrap most of the jar label from the jar.
Use Goo Gone to remove the remaining residue from the jar. My Goo Gone is a combination of Lemon Essential Oil and Fractionated Coconut Oil. You can find the full recipe for Goo Gone at simplemadepretty.com.
Once the Glass jar is completely clean, you can start adding the contents to make the homemade Thieves wipes.
Add 2 cups of distilled water to the jar.
Add 1-2 Tablespoons of Dr. Bronner's Castile soap to the jar.
Add 10 drops of Thieves essential oil and 10 drops of Lemon essential oil (if using Lemon).
Stir the ingredients to combine.
Start adding the coffee filters into the jar. I separate each filter so they do not get stuck together and if you have a small mouth on your jar like mine, you will need to fold them slightly to fit inside. Otherwise, if you have a large jar, you can just place all of the coffee filters in the mixture.
Turn the jar upside down and give it a shake to soak all of the filters inside. Continue adding coffee filters until the jar is full and most of the liquid is absorbed. If you have too much liquid, pour the liquid into another jar and add coffee filters to the second jar.
Now for the fun part... making the jar look pretty.???? Trim a piece of scrap fabric into a square using Pinking scissors.
Glue the fabric to the top of the lid and use twine to tie the fabric to the base of the lid. You want to be able to open the lid so you won't be able to tie it around the neck of the jar.
Glue the twine to the fabric on the base of the lid. This will give the jar a cute vintage/farmhouse style and no one will ever know the jar was a food jar!
Add a cute decal or stickers to properly label the jar. You don't want someone to mistake these wipes for personal hygiene wipes! You can get the decals I used in my shop.
