Homemade Glass Cleaner

March 29th, 2012 | Posted by Angela Roberts in Going Greener | Homemade Household Cleaners

In the past few weeks I have been struggling with the urge to go out and buy Windex.  I have resisted and today I am so glad that I did.  I made the best glass cleaner…EVER.  Yep, ever.  I am so excited about this, I even called my mom raving.    Okay, maybe I am a tad too excited.

I have two big sliding glass doors that lead to my back patio.  Between the dog’s nose and the kids sticky fingers it is a daily battle to keep it clean.  I have been struggling with making a chemical free all natural glass cleaner.  I have been using vinegar and water and the streaks that are left behind have been driving me batty.  Batty equals the urge to buy Windex.

Today the urge is gone and with only 4 ingredients.  You have to try this….really.  I am sure that you have the ingredients in your house right now.

Homemade Glass Cleaner

Here is the recipe for an awesome homemade glass cleaner (I really wish that I could have a drumroll!):

What you need:

1/4 cup rubbing alcohol, 1/4 cup white vinegar, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 2 cups warm water

What you do:

Mix all of the ingredients in a spray bottle and shake really well to mix up the cornstarch.

Seriously, this stuff is the best.  And holy cow the cost.  I approximate that an entire bottle of this glass cleaner costs 50 cents, how can you beat that?!

    I am really enjoying your site! For windows, I just use straight vinegar. I get no streaks and it is 100% safe. When my children were babies and would put their mouths on my windows, I never worried. I will never go back to Windex!

    Is corn flour the same as corn starch?

    • Angela says:

      Here is what I found over at Ask.com: “Depending on where you live, corn starch and corn flour is the same thing and there is no difference. In the United States, we call it corn starch and it’s used as a thickening agent. In the UK, it’s called corn flour but it does the same thing.” Hope that helps!!
