Are you tired of dealing with streaky, smudged glass surfaces? Robin's simple DIY glass cleaner recipe can help you achieve sparkling, crystal-clear windows and mirrors without harsh chemicals. This blog will walk you through making your glass cleaner using common household ingredients.

Ingredients You'll Need:

✔️ Distilled White Vinegar: Known for its cleaning and disinfecting properties, vinegar is the star of our DIY glass cleaner.

✔️ Water: Opt for distilled water to prevent streaks and residue.

✔️ Rubbing Alcohol: This ingredient helps break down grease and grime for a streak-free shine.

✔️ Essential Oils (Optional): Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to impart a pleasant fragrance and boost cleaning power.


1. Mix Ingredients: Combine equal parts distilled white vinegar and water in a clean spray bottle. For example, use 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of water.

2. Add Rubbing Alcohol: Pour a small amount of rubbing alcohol into the mixture. A ratio of about 1 part rubbing alcohol to 4 parts vinegar and water solution works well.

3. Optional: Add Essential Oils: If desired, add a few drops of essential oils like lemon, lavender, or tea tree oil for a refreshing scent and extra cleaning boost.

4. Shake Well: Secure the spray bottle's lid tightly and shake vigorously to mix all ingredients thoroughly.

5. Ready to Use: Your DIY glass cleaner is ready! Simply spray the solution onto glass surfaces such as windows, mirrors, and tabletops.

6. Wipe Clean: Use a lint-free microfiber cloth or newspaper to wipe the glass in a circular motion, starting from the top and working your way down. This helps prevent streaks and ensures a streak-free shine.

7. Buff to Shine: For added sparkle, buff the glass with a dry microfiber cloth after cleaning to remove any remaining moisture and polish the surface to a brilliant shine.

Benefits of DIY Glass Cleaner:

✔️ Environmentally Friendly: Robin's homemade glass cleaner reduces plastic waste from single-use bottles and eliminates the need for harsh chemical cleaners.

✔️ Cost-Effective: Using essential household ingredients to make your glass cleaner is much more economical than buying commercial cleaners.

✔️ Effective Cleaning: The combination of vinegar, water, and rubbing alcohol effectively cuts through dirt, grease, and grime, leaving your glass surfaces sparkling clean and streak-free.

✔️ Customizable: You can customize your DIY glass cleaner with your favorite essential oils for a personalized fragrance and extra cleaning power.

Here's the scoop:

Go weekly and you are cleaned four times in most months. But when a month stretches to five weeks, that fifth one on us.

If you are on the schedule every 4 weeks, revel in one pristine performance eleven out of twelve months but the one where there's two cleanings, the second one is complimentary.
