My Favorite Homemade Cleaner of All Time…

September 23, 2013

windows9The fall season is my favorite time to clean.  This is when I tackle all of the “hard-to-clean” areas that I don’t touch all summer long. Some of those areas are the outside windows, sills, screens, and window frames.  To clean these areas, I use soap and warm water for the window sills, and spray on one of  my favorite homemade cleaners of all time….my glass cleaner!

It is very easy to make this great glass cleaner, all you need is  2 cups water (can be filtered, distilled, or boiled), 1/4 cup white vinegar, 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol, and 1 tablespoon corn starch.

Pour all the ingredients into a spray bottle.  Shake very well so the corn starch mixes in with the rest of the ingredients.  Spray, and wipe.  It is that easy!
