This DIY cleaner is inexpensive, natural, and just as effective as your commercial brands you buy. There are many natural cleaners that are better for your health and the environment compared to many commercial brand cleaners. But, if you like making DIY products at home, add this one to your list.
The Natural Window Cleaner
The homemade glass and window cleaner is simple to put together. You’ll be able to use the spray for your household surfaces such as, windows, glass tables, and mirrors. The ingredients are non-toxic and free of any harsh chemicals, so it will be safe to use around your children, pets and yourself.
Note that when you first use the homemade glass and window cleaner, it will portray a strong scent due to the vinegar. This scent will die off as soon as the the solution dries.
To Store: Keep your cleaner in a large glass spray bottle and use a microfiber cloth to wipe down the windows and mirrors.
You may find spray bottles at your local grocery store but, keep in mind, a glass spray bottle is better for storage.
The reason why we use a microfiber cloth is because it doesn’t leave a residue like paper towels do and you can reuse them. Saves you money, time and it’s less wasteful. You may also use a newspaper or old t-shirt to wipe down your windows, mirrors, and glass surfaces.
DIY Glass and Window Cleaner
What You Will Need:
- 3 cups water (filtered water works best) Britta
- 3 tablespoons of vinegar
PRO TIP: Because the vinegar smell can be intense, add 10-12 drops of essential oil drops to the solution. Lemon and orange essential oils will do the trick.
Take your vinegar and filtered water and place them into your glass spray bottle. Then add in your drops of essential oils. Mix well and your glass cleaner is ready to use. Spray on any glass surface of your home and use a microfiber cloth to wipe down.
