DIY Homemade Window Cleaner Ideas
Cleaning windows doesn’t require tons of fancy cleaning products. In fact, you can whip up a batch of DIY window cleaner in minutes using things you probably already have around the house. Here are some easy DIY homemade window cleaner solutions you can use to keep your windows sparkling and shiny.
Vinegar & Water
Vinegar and water have long been used to clean windows. Vinegar cuts through grime and gets your windows sparkling clean with no harsh chemicals. Just combine 2 tbsp. white vinegar with 2 cups of water in a spray bottle. If you don’t care for the smell, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Lemon essential oil will give you the same clean scent as many commercial cleaners without the chemicals.
Alcohol, Vinegar & Water
This combination is a little stronger and leaves fewer streaks than the formula without alcohol. Combine ¼ cup each of white vinegar and isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) with two cups of water. Mix in a spray bottle and spray on your windows, wiping it off with a microfiber cloth to dry your windows to a streak-free shine. If you don’t care for the smell, you can add essential oils to the mix and freshen up your windows at the same time. Try tea tree oil for a clean, fresh scent, or orange for a bright, cheerful one.
Dish Soap & Water
You can clean your windows with just dish soap and warm water. Dish soap cuts through grease and grime, making it good for exterior windows. Squirt 1-2 tbs. dish soap into a bucket of warm water. Use a soft cloth to dip in the water and wash the windows, then use a squeegee to clean off the dirty water. Dry your windows with a dry microfiber cloth for a sparkly shine.
