This DIY glass cleaning recipe was a pretty easy recipe to figure out after I got the tip to use vinegar from an elderly neighbor. A

In fact, I now keep little glass spray bottles and cleaning rags in a basket in our pantry. Cleaning the lower part of windows is now a daily job for our 4 and 5-year-olds.

Natural Glass Cleaner Recipe This DIY natural glass cleaner recipe is very inexpensive and effective. It works on glass and smooth surfaces and only needs three ingredients

Equipment – Glass spray bottle Materials – 2 cups water (distilled or filtered is best so it doesn’t leave residue)

– 2 TBSP vinegar – 10 drops essential oil (optional, I use lemon)

Instructions – In a spray bottle, combine all the ingredients. – Use as needed to clean windows.

Notes If you have always used commercial window cleaner in the past, mix a couple of drops of liquid castile soap or liquid dish soap in some of this mixture the first time you clean the windows to remove detergent residue.

This cleaner has a somewhat strong smell that completely evaporates once it dries.
