March 19, 2011: Glass Cleaner Recipes

Bookmark and Share

One cleaning product you are sure to have around the house is glass cleaner – probably that blue liquid that costs a lot (I suspect you’re really paying more for the container than the ingredients because the formula is pretty simple). Instead of paying for a new bottle of glass cleaner, keep the spray container and refill it with one of these recipes.

Glass Cleaner Recipe #1

Plain white vinegar
Rubbing alcohol
Juice from half a lemon or about 1 T. bottled lemon juice

Mix together 3 parts vinegar to 1 part rubbing alcohol plus the lemon juice. Shake and spray.

Glass Cleaner Recipe #2 (I already shared this one earlier in the month in a post about cornstarch for cleaning but I’m including it here again for your convenience)

½ cup ammonia
½ cup white vinegar
2 T. cornstarch

Add all ingredients to a pail of warm water. Apply with a cloth, then wipe with a clean, dry cloth or a wad of newspaper.

Glass Cleaner Recipe #3

½ cup water
½ cup rubbing alcohol

Mix together in a spray bottle.

Tip: For streak-free windows or mirrors, use wadded up newspapers or coffee filters to dry the glass cleaner from the surface.
