Homemade hand wipes
Submitted by Paul P. from West Virginia

To remove any scent or lure I get on my hands while setting traps, I make these simple wipes. They help keep your traps from getting dug up. Take a roll of name brand thick paper towels (Brawny or Bounty work good) and cut them in half. Remove the cardboard tube.

Put a half roll in a plastic container or a gallon size ziplock bag. Mix 2 tablespoons of mineral oil, 3 tablespoons of scent removing liquid soap, and 2 cups of hot water. Pour slowly over one of the halves. After two or three hours the water will be soaked in evenly and the wipes are ready to use. If you pull them from the center of the roll, they'll come out easier. They will keep for two or three weeks at room temperature, or you can refrigerate them to store them longer.
