Say goodbye to streaks and smudges on your windows, mirrors, and other glass surfaces - it's time to embrace the power of homemade cleaning solutions!

Glass surfaces can easily accumulate dirt, dust, and smudges, making them look dull and unappealing. Regularly cleaning your glass surfaces is essential for maintaining their shine and clarity. However, store-bought glass cleaners are often full of harsh chemicals that can be harmful to both you and the environment. Fortunately, there is a safer and more cost-effective alternative – making your own DIY glass cleaner.

In this blog post, we will introduce you to the basics of creating your own homemade glass cleaner using simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Not only will this save you money in the long run, but it also allows you to have control over what goes into your cleaning solution.

The great thing about DIY glass cleaners is that they require minimal ingredients, most of which are readily available at home or can be easily found at any grocery store. The basic ingredients for making a homemade glass cleaner include white vinegar, rubbing alcohol or vodka, water, and essential oils (optional). These ingredients work together to cut through dirt and grime while leaving behind a streak-free shine on your glass surfaces. So let's get started.

DIY Glass Cleaner Supplies:

Glass Spray bottle (I got mine from amazon, below is the link)

Distilled vinegar

Distilled water (you can make this at home)

Rubbing alcohol (I got mine from the dollar tree)

Measuring cup (I prefer to use glass as it is easier to clean after)

I opted not to use essential oils as when I tested a mixture with some included it left streaks on my windows. If you don’t like the smell, you could add some but you might get streaks on your windows.

Instructions for DIY Glass Cleaner

Measure ½ cup of distilled vinegar and pour into the spray bottle.

Next add ½ cup of rubbing alcohol and pour into the spray bottle.

Fill the remainder of the bottle with distilled water (I use distilled as I have harder water in my area)

Place the sprayer on the top of the bottle and shake the contents to mix. I give it a couple of shakes before each use.

After discussing the various benefits and recipes for making your own DIY glass cleaner, it is clear that there are many compelling reasons to give it a try. Not only is it cost-effective and environmentally friendly, but it also allows you to have greater control over the ingredients used in your cleaning products. In this concluding section, we will delve deeper into why you should consider switching to homemade glass cleaner.

First and foremost, making your own glass cleaner can save you money in the long run. The ingredients needed for these recipes are all affordable and easily accessible, which means you can make large batches at a fraction of the cost of store-bought cleaners. Additionally, since most of the ingredients are non-toxic and multi-purpose, you can use them for other household cleaning tasks as well. This not only saves money but also reduces clutter in your cleaning supplies.

Moreover, by creating your own glass cleaner, you have complete control over what goes into it. Many commercial cleaners contain harsh chemicals that may be harmful to both our health and the environment. By using natural ingredients like vinegar, essential oils, and rubbing alcohol, you can eliminate exposure to these potentially harmful substances while still achieving sparkling clean windows.

Another advantage of DIY glass cleaners is their versatility. As mentioned earlier, most of the ingredients used in these recipes have multiple uses beyond just window cleaning. For example, white vinegar is not only an effective glass cleaner but also works wonders on stainless steel appliances and surfaces. Essential oils like lemon or peppermint add a pleasant scent to the cleaner while also providing antibacterial properties.

Furthermore, if sustainability is important to you, then making your own glass cleaner is a step towards reducing waste. By reusing old spray bottles or containers instead of buying new ones every time you need more cleaner, you are helping reduce plastic waste that ends up in landfills.

Giving DIY glass cleaner a chance offers numerous benefits such as affordability,

control over ingredients, versatility, and sustainability. Whether you are looking to save money, reduce your exposure to harsh chemicals, or do your part in protecting the environment, making your own glass cleaner is a simple and effective solution. So why not give it a try and see the difference for yourself? Your windows (and wallet) will thank you!
