One of the things I spend the most money on at the store outside of food and diapers, are cleaning products like glass cleaner. Raise your hand if you have a cabinet under your sink, a shelf in your pantry or a closet or even a spot in the garage that is full of cleaning products. *Raises Hand* Now think about how many of the products are just sitting there because you bought them, tried them out and they didn't work or you didn't like them for one reason or another? At least half I'm guessing?
This problem is a big part of why I started to look into making my own. I started with my DIY Laundry Soap and now I'm tackling window cleaner because let's face it with 4 kids ages 6 and under no window or mirror stays clean for long!
DIY Better Than Windex Glass Cleaner
So as you can see this window cleaner can be made for pennies! I get my dawn dish soap on sale for 49¢ a bottle and the vinegar I can pick up 32 oz for under $1 so the money saved with this homemade window cleaner is HUGE! It works great in windows and mirrors and I have had a few people say they will add in some essential oil just a drop for scent. I haven't done it because , well if it ain't broke don't fix it right?
So here goes this takes less than a minute to mix and you are off cleaning again!
What You Need
- 1 cup Water
- 1/4 cup White Vinegar
- 2 to 3 drops Dawn Dish Soap
- Empty Spray Bottle
Are you sure you are ready? These instruction are VERY complicated and if you aren't ready you will be lost… NAH just kidding check out how easy this is!
What You Need To Do:
- Just combine the water, white vinegar, and dawn dish soap in an empty spray bottle. Shake a LITTLE bit and you are DONE!
- Spray and clean!
Make sure to label your spray bottle. I LOVE these Chalkboard Labels they make labeling everything easy!
