Homemade Window Cleaner


Homemade Window Cleaners are a great way to save more as they are safe and more effective. Cleaners bought at the store costs $3-$4 compared to DIY glass cleaners for that costs around $0.33 to make. I find that when I use store-bought glass cleaners I don’t get that streak-free window. With the homemade version, I get streak-free windows every time.

If you are a fan of non-toxic cleaners, view the recipes below on how to make Homemade Window Cleaner.


Streak-Free Window Cleaner



1 cup water
1 cup rubbing alcohol
1 teaspoon vinegar


  1. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a brand new spray bottle.  (do not reuse a spray bottle that already had cleaner in it previously)

Scented Window Cleaner



2 cups water
2 tablespoons vinegar
10-15 drops essential oil (will help the vinegar smell)


  1. Mix ingredients together into a brand new, un-used spray bottle.



Lemon Window Cleaner



1/2 of a lemon juiced
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water


  1. Juice half of a lemon and remove the seeds.
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and whisk until blended.
  3. Pour into a brand new, un-used spray bottle.


You can also use some mild dishwashing soap such as Dawn, water,  and a squeegee to wash your windows. If you have larger windows or want to clean the outside of them, this method may be best for you.

    These are some great recipes! I’m trying to reduce the number of toxins in our home, and our cleaning routine is an easy way to start.
