Make Your Own Glass Cleaner

Once I made laundry detergent and realized how easy it was to do and how much money it saved, I wanted to make more of my own cleaners. Making your own household cleaner(s) is easy to do, saves you money, (most ingredients you probably already have in your home), and helps you control -- or eliminate-- what toxins you allow in your home.

This recipe is for glass cleaner. It's many uses (faucets, mirrors, windows, etc.) make it an excellent return on investment.  To maximize your savings, I recommend using a microfiber cloth instead of paper towel. It can be re-used (just toss it in the wash) and reduces household trash.

Benefits: Costs less, safer, and environmentally friendly.


Spray Bottle (I get mine from the Dollar Store)
1 Cup Rubbing Alcohol
1 Cup Water
1 Tablespoon White Vinegar


Mix all ingredients in spray bottle, give a shake, you're done!



Here are my bathroom faucet & medicine cabinet before:

Here they are after using the glass cleaner.


Adjust recipe amount proportionally as necessary to fit your needs.

Go green! Save money, reduce trash, and use less chemicals!
