Make yourself an effective homemade glass cleaner. Why not?

Homemade glass cleaner. Sounds so simple and so effective. I wonder why it took me so long to switch that toxic blue stuff I previously used for  my own natural version. In fact, my glass cleaner was one of the very last chemical products to leave my house. For quite some time I usually used  vinegar solutions and baking soda  to clean my bathroom only to avoid the rubber gloves and the blue stuff to clean my mirrors. What was I thinking?

But that thing is in the past because now I am in love with my homemade glass cleaner. And you will too.
Why should we discard the blue stuff?

The homemade Glass Cleaner is  simple, nontoxic and it works.

First of all, it’s blue. But I am scared by the color alone. I still wonder why chemical companies think we have to use “Liquitint Sky Blue Dye” in a cleaning product, but it’s clearly there.

Do you know what else is in there? There are things like:

Ammonium Hydroxide
Mirapol Surf S-210
Viden EGM
Synthetic Fragrances
2 Hexoxyethanol
Sodium C14-17 Sec-Alkyl Sulfonat
2 Hexoxyethanol

A number of reasons exist that show why we should rethink toxic cleaners.  It’s not very hard to take baby steps towards a home free of toxics. It’s not very difficult just like making this homemade glass cleaner.
And not to forget to mention that this homemade glass cleaner is much more cheap.

It’s a fact that these ingredients are super non-expensive which makes the homemade glass cleaner to be a no-brainer.Get rid of the chemicals and save your budget. You can help the planet in this way. That’s what they call a trifecta of green-living.
How to make a homemade Glass Cleaner


1/4 cup rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol
2 tsp corn starch
1/4 cup white or apple cider vinegar
2 cups of water
2 tsp corn starch
1/4 cup lemon juice (option, but helps cut some of the strong vinegar/alcohol smell)


Combine everything in a spray bottle and shake before using it. It’s so simple. I even let my little girl put her hands all over my mirror to show you  what the homemade glass cleaner can do.

Finally, there you have it. Do you already use a homemade glass cleaner? Can you recommend a recipe of your own?
