Some of the best solutions for disease and cleaning can be made at home from the ingredients you may have lying around the house. This way, you know exactly what is going into your “detergent” and it is also a good way of saving money. Below are three recipes for tried and tested window cleaning solutions.

Recipe 1

  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dishwashing detergent
  • a bucket
  • scrub brush with an extension pole
  • water hose with optional sprayer attachment

Make a whole bucket of the solution. Using a soft bristle scrub brush on an extension pole handle, dip the brush in a bucket of the solution, and scrub it on the window that you need to clean.
Before it has dried, spray/rinse it off with clean water. Be sure to rinse thoroughly. A hose fitted with a sprayer attachment will be helpful. This should work great on all types of windows, including UPVC double-glazed windows

Recipe 2

  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar
  • ¼ rubbing alcohol
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups water
  • 10 drops of essential oil (lemon, orange, or lavender work best)
  • a glass spray bottle

What to do

This recipe which is similar to our homemade floor cleaner, uses several ingredients, including corn starch, which you probably already have sitting in your pantry. In a glass spray bottle, combine all the ingredients. Shake well to ensure the solution is thoroughly mixed.
It is important to ensure that the cornstarch is completely dissolved since it can clog the nozzle on your bottle otherwise. Spray the solution on the windows and wipe clean.

Recipe 3

  • 2 cups of water (distilled or filtered is best so it doesn’t leave residue)
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 10 drops essential oil of choice – many choose to use lemon (this is optional- but it does help to cut the vinegar smell)
  • a glass spray bottle

What to do

Combine ingredients in a spray bottle and use as needed to clean the window. I like to use a microfiber cloth to wipe windows clean with this recipe. If you have always used commercial window cleaner in the past, mix a couple of drops of liquid castile soap or liquid dish soap in some of this mixture the first time you clean the windows to remove detergent residue. Save money, follow these easy recipes, and have sparkling clean windows
Now you can save time and money by making your own cleaning aids at home, with ingredients that you are familiar with from your grocery cupboard.

These recipes ensure that your windows are clean and remove all residue of the previous detergent. It is much safer to use and can even be fun watching the mixture you just made, clean your home. Try them and see which one works best for you. There are various other solutions online that you can research.
