When I first started using all natural cleaners I just used straight vinegar, like my grandma used to. It worked, but I noticed I had to rub harder/longer to clean my windows and it left streaks from time to time. This window cleaner recipe works wonderful and never makes me miss the commercial brands.
- 1/2 Cup White Distilled Vinegar
- Distilled Water
- 1/2 Cup Rubbing Alcohol
- 1/2 tsp Corn Starch
- 4 Drops Essential of lavender essential oil and 4 Drops of Eucalyptus essential oil
- Mix Essential Oils and Corn Starch together, mix well.
- Add a little water until cornstarch is dissolved
- Pour remaining ingredients into your spray bottle, I use a 12 oz bottle
- Fill the remainder of your bottle with water
- Shake before use, spray on window, glass, sink, appliance or other surface and wipe dry with lint-free cloth or newspaper
This recipe will replace your window and glass gleaner (Windex, green clean, etc.).
However, If you are unable to make your own window cleaner you can make a solution on 1 part distilled white vinegar to 1 part distilled water or buy an organic window cleaner like Green Shield Organic Window Cleaner.
