DIY Cleaning Wipes with Viva® Vantage

Thank you Viva® Vantage and Walmart for sponsoring today’s post and helping me clean up my messes.


I finally did it!

I made my own cleaning wipes and I LOVE them!!

DIY Cleaning Wipes with Viva Paper Towels

First, I headed to Walmart to pick up what I needed.  I purchased Viva Vantage Paper Towels because I knew I needed the good stuff.  I usually buy generic brand paper towels because I’m cheap but it drives my husband crazy.  And I must admit that my husband is so right.   Viva® Vantage Paper Towels really stand up to the test when it comes to cleaning up messes.  They are extremely durable and won’t break up on you while you’re in the middle of cleaning.

Conduit and Pipe Curtain Rod inspired by Pinterest

We have a laundry closet upstairs in our hallway and while I love having the washer and dryer upstairs, it’s kind of an eye sore.  We used to have closet doors there so I could just shut them and pretend they weren’t there.  Then we got front loaders and I could no longer shut the doors.  That’s where I had to get creative.  I first found the curtains at IKEA but I couldn’t decide what kind of curtain rods I wanted especially since it was such a wide area.

Conduit and Pipe Curtain Rod

Then, of course, I found something on Pinteres where you can use plumbing  parts and conduit to make an inexpensive curtain rod.  This is my kind of project for three reasons – they are cheap, sturdy and easy to assemble.

Materials needed:

  • galvanized floor flanges with 1/2 inch opening
  • steel pipe thread (2 inches by 1/2 inches)
  • 1/2 inch elbow pipe
  • conduit piping (found in the electrical section)
  • spray paint (optional)
  • screws
  • curtain ring clips (I found mine at Walmart)

Step 1:  Gather your supplies.  I want to note that I had Home Depot cut the conduit  for me.  This made is easier for me to fit it in my car and, of course, I didn’t have to deal with cutting anything myself which is always awesome.

Step 2:  Spray paint the flanges and pipes.  I chose to paint those silver so I didn’t have to paint the conduit.

Step 3:  Pre-drill all your holes.

Step 4:  Assemble everything together (don’t forget your curtain ring clips) and screw everything into the wall.

That’s it!  Add your curtains to the clips and you are all done.
