There are dozens of different companies who make glass cleaner, but with just 3 ingredients, you can make your own recipe. I was skeptical at first. I mean, 3 ingredients, and every single item I already have at home? So, I set out to make this simple product, and under 2 minutes, I had a very inexpensive and super effective glass cleaner. I used it on my mirrors, windows, and doors, and absolutely no streaks! If you don’t believe me, give a try.
- 1 cup rubbing alcohol
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
Carefully mix together the three ingredients in a new empty spray bottle. Important: Do not reuse a spray bottle that previously had another kind of cleaner in it, the risk outweighs the potential savings.
You should also label the spray bottle as glass cleaner and keep it safely stored where curious pets or children cannot access it.
( I found this particular bottle on Amazon.com. It is durable with a good spray, and even better price. The chalkboard can be re-used to change what is inside.)
Benefits of Homemade Glass Cleaner
Using alcohol and white vinegar together makes a quickly evaporating spray glass and mirror cleaner that can complete with the cleaning power of national brands. This same recipe can also be used to give a nice shine to hard tiles, chrome, and other surfaces.
