Inside: Skip the store-bought glass cleaner and make this streak-free homemade glass cleaner. It's easy to make and uses just 3 ingredients. Get your mirrors and glass clean and streak-free!
I love it when I can find a way to make something at home instead of buying it at the store. With so many cleaners, not only are they often cheaper to make at home, but they don't have all the weird ingredients and chemicals that the store-bought cleaners often have. Why is window cleaner even blue?
This homemade glass cleaner is not only easy to make, but it will save you money too. Plus, it leaves a fantastic streak-free shine on mirrors and windows.
Homemade Glass Cleaner
To make this DIY glass cleaner you will need a few things.
- spray bottle
- vinegar (just the plain white vinegar)
- rubbing alcohol
- 2-4 drops lemon essential oil (if desired)
Plus, I highly recommend skipping paper towels, which leave behind residue, and instead, use a microfiber cloth. I love these microfiber cloths from Amazon.
Between the natural glass cleaner and the microfiber cloths, you will love how clean your glass and mirrors are!
To start you will need a large bowl or funnel with spray bottle to mix your ingredients.
I prefer a mixing cup with a pour spout so it's easy to transfer to the spray bottle.
Step 1: Pour two cups of water in the measuring cup.
Step 2: Add in 1 tablespoon cornstarch.
Step 3: Then add 1/4 cup vinegar
Step 4: Add 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol.
Step 5: You can add in a couple of drops of essential oils to make it smell good if you would like. My favorite is the lemon essential oil.
Step 6: Mix everything until combined and transfer to a spray bottle. Or, add lid to spray bottle and shake.
Using the DIY Glass Cleaner
To use the homemade glass and mirror cleaner you will want give the bottle a few good shakes first.
The cornstarch will settle over time so by shaking it you help to mix up the cornstarch.
