So, if you have windows to clean and want to make your own cleaner, you've come to the right place. Here are some homemade window cleaner recipes that are guaranteed to work.
When creating your own window cleaner, you want to look for as many natural ingredients and as few chemicals as possible. For these homemade window cleaner recipes, you will need the following ingredients: white vinegar, lemon juice, ammonia, rubbing alcohol, dish detergent, water, cornstarch, and club soda. With this list, you can create several different cleaners in which to make your windows sparkle!
For the first step, combine 1/4 cup vinegar, 2 cups water and 1/2 teaspoon dish washing detergent in a spray bottle and shake until well blended. Spray on windows and use paper towels to remove completely. Another option is to simply fill a spray bottle with club soda and use paper towels to wipe clean.
You can also mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, 1/2 cup ammonia and 1/2 cup white vinegar in a gallon of water to create a cleaning solution that will make the windows sparkling clear. With this homemade window cleaner, make sure the cornstarch dissolves completely before use to avoid streaking.
Another option with the above ingredient list is to take a gallon of water and add 1/4 cup vinegar, a few drops of dish detergent and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. You can also combine one cup rubbing alcohol, one tablespoon vinegar and one cup water to develop a great window cleaner.
Another great way to clean your windows is to take fresh lemons and cut them in half. Rub the lemon halves over the window panes, then remove the juice with paper towels (making sure you don't leave any pulp behind). You can also add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to a 16 ounce spray bottle and top off with water to create a fantastic grease cutting cleaner. This is a great glass cleaner for your kitchen windows.
If you are looking for something to clean your car windows, you can try this homemade window cleaner. Take 1/8 cup cornstarch and add it to 16 ounces very warm water. Stir until all the cornstarch is dissolved and apply to windows with a cloth or sponge and then remove with paper towels. This is also a great cleaner for the exterior windows of your house or office.
For an all natural cleaner, take a sterilized, dry spray bottle and set aside. Add lavender sprigs and lemon verbena leaves to 2-3 cups of cold water in a saucepan and bring water to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for approximately 10 minutes. Filter mixture through cheesecloth into the spray bottle and add a few drops liquid dish detergent, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, 2 drops each of lavender and lemon verbena essential oils, lavender sprigs (a fresh batch) and lemon verbena leaves (also a fresh batch) and shake well once the bottle is sealed. This can be stored for up to two weeks and is a great smelling, effective homemade window cleaner.
Making your own window cleaners can be fun and cost efficient. It is also a great way to go green and help preserve the environment. With these homemade window cleaners, you are sure to have the best looking windows in your neighborhood.
