Homemade Glass Cleaner


Recently, I went to a physician and she suggested that my allergies could be due to particular cleaning products used in our house. She said I should switch to natural cleaning products so this was the perfect excuse to make my own. This glass cleaner is a tried and true. It's SUPER simple to make and works just as good as an expensive window cleaner.

1/4 cup white vinegar
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon dishwashing soap
spray bottle

1. Combine all ingredients in the spray bottle.
2. Shake up before using.

The soap helps the solution not to streak up on windows. I've been trying to be more green so I've been trying to use more towels instead of paper towels. And of course, this saves money too which I am all for!  

I'm pretty excited to learn how to create other natural cleaners. I'm learning that baking soda and white vinegar fix anything!

Does anyone have any cleaning concoction that they've made?


  1. mix together equal parts of ammonia and dish wash soap (not soap for a dishwasher but for hand washing dishes) use as a spot remover for wash. I put it on the spot let it sit for a few minutes then scrub a bit and throw in the washer. I think it works great...Brenda

  2. Put a 1/2 c. of white vinegar into your washing machine along with your laundry detergent... helps get stinky smells out of dishclothes/towels, sweaty gym clothes, dirty/stained work clothing, and more! You don't have any vinegar smell afterwards, but it makes a big difference :-) I now keep a large jug of white vinegar next to my washing machine!

  3. Oooooh! Thanks! I've been tempted to do that but have been a little scared to. I think I will try it! I LOVE white vinegar. I used it to get a stain out of my carpet and to clean our hardwood floors.
