I’ve been using DIY glass cleaner for years, and my windows look just as good as all of my neighbors that don’t use a homemade window cleaner recipe. Plus, when you use homemade DIY cleaning products that are all natural, you aren’t introducing additional toxic chemicals into your home.
Saving money and cleaning without chemicals are good enough reasons to start making your own DIY glass cleaner, right?
Here’s how easy it is…
DIY Glass Cleaner Recipe
What you need:
A spray bottle
Distilled white vinegar
What you do:
- Pour a ½ cup of distilled white vinegar into the spray bottle.
- Fill the spray bottle with water.
- Shake it up, and get to cleaning those windows!
If you have been using commercial glass cleaners up to this point, you will want to add a few drops of liquid dish soap or Dr. Bronner’s to this mix the first time you clean your windows with your DIY glass cleaner. Conventional window cleaners can leave a residue on the glass, so you will get a streaky finish if you switch to a vinegar-water mix without adding liquid soap to remove the residue.
Once you have cleaned your windows with the vinegar-water-liquid soap mix once or twice, you’ll get sparkling, clean windows with just the vinegar-water mix from there on out.
