Homemade Glass Cleaner Recipe
Homemade glass cleaner is easy to make and is free of harmful ingredients. This recipe was originally published on DIY Natural and is quick to mix.
- 1 cup alcohol (vodka or Everclear)
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon liquid soap
- Mix the vinegar and alcohol
- Add the water
- Mix in the soap
- Add the ingredients to a spray bottle
Blend the vinegar and alcohol together in a large bucket.
Add water until the total liquid volume reaches 1/2 gallon.
Blend the liquid soap into the mixture.
Add the cleaner to a spray bottle and store the rest of the mixture in an airtight container.
The liquid soap in the recipe is optional, but it can help remove tough marks or stubborn dirt. It also helps keep the mixture from streaking on the glass.
Some similar recipes such as the cleaner listed on Care2 use similar ingredients, but omit the alcohol. However, the alcohol is also a handy ingredient for reducing streaking.
To wash windows and glass with homemade cleaner, spray the mixture directly on the glass and wipe it away with a soft cloth.
