Use of Preparing Natural Glass and Window Cleaner on your own

Avoid toxic materials – when you buy a conventional cleaner from the market, you will be having sevral chemical toxins like ammonium hydroxide, Viden-EGM, propylene glycol, Mirapol Surf (S-210), Hexoxyethanol and so on. With this they add Fragrance and other contaminations.

Prepare your own streak free cleaner at cheap rate – by making your own cleaner you can save more money.

  • Vinegar – For 32oz you need, $0.4
  • Rubbing Alcohol – For half cup you need, $0.5
  • Corn Starch – for 1 tablespoon you need, $0.4

So, you need only $.33 to $.35 in total for preparing 3 cups of Glass cleaner solution.

Tips for making Window cleaner in home:

  • Use Newspaper or clean cotton cloth to wipe clean. By this your window shines!!! Also use micro fibre cloth.
  • Before each cleaning, shake the spray bottle. Otherwise, starches used in the mix may clot your spray nozzle.
  • Starches such as tapioca, arrow root will work better than corn. If you have any problem in using corn starch, try these starches
  • Swab using lemon, orange to get cut the vinegar smell
  • Differentiate the bottle from the other by adding natural or artificial food coloring. I will prefer beetroot juice (inexpensive natural-colouring)
