Begin by cutting the roll of paper toweling in half with a large knife. Trim any small loose bits of paper toweling away with a scissors along the cut edges.
You can paint the recycled coffee container if you wish. A spray paint labeled to work on plastic is a good choice. (If you paint the container, make sure you let it dry for the specified time before placing the wipes inside).
Cut an opening in the center of the lid of the coffee container using a utility knife. Cut an "X" shape by cutting two lines about an 1-1/2" long.
Next, make the cleaning solution by mixing the distilled water, the vinegar, the small squirt of dish soap, and the tea tree oil.
Place the half roll of paper toweling in the prepared container. It's OK if it's a little larger than the container as the toweling will compact down once it is moistened. Slowly pour the cleaning solution over the toweling to moisten it.
Remove the cardboard roll from the inside of the moistened roll and throw it away. You can then find the beginning wipe at the beginning of the roll and pull it through the opening you cut in the lid. Your wipes are now ready to use!
