We all want to keep the glass items like mirrors, glass windows, etc. sparkling clean without a small stain on it, don’t we? Usually we purchase products from supermarkets like colin to clean them but have you ever thought of homemade glass cleaners? These are very effective and affordable at the same time. A large number of things do work as a homemade glass cleaner like alcohol, vinegar, soap water or detergent solution. The ingredients alone cannot clean glass but it can be done by mixing one or more ingredients. If you clean it with mixed ingredients, it gives you best results without stains on the glass. Cautiously combine the ingredients in an unfilled spray bottle. Don’t use the bottle which has another cleaner in it. After mixing ingredients mark the spray bottle as glass cleaner and store out of reach of children.
ALCOHOL AND WHITE VINEGAR
Alcohol and white vinegar are utilized to allow a good sparkle to ceramic, chrome and other hard surfaces. Vinegar being slightly acidic is known to remove stains and is utilized as a beauty product too.
Things You’ll Need:
- 1 Cup of Alcohol
- 2 Tablespoons White Vinegar
- 1 Cup of Water
- Combine 1 cup of alcohol with 2 tbsp of white vinegar and 1 cup of water.
- Mix these two ingredients well in an empty spray bottle.
- Spray some of this mixture onto the glass and rub the glass using a cloth.
DISH DETERGENT AND ESSENTIAL OIL
This recipe goes excellent and essential oil gives you pleasant smell. Two parts of hydrogen peroxide with 1 part of dawn dish detergent together also remove hard stains on the glass. Hydrogen peroxide is well known to remove stains; we just need to dilute it.
Things You’ll Need:
- 1/4 Cup Vinegar
- 2 1/2 Cups Water
- 1/2 Cup Dish Detergent
- Few Drops of Essential Oil
- Add ¼ cup of vinegar, 2 ½ cups of water, ½ cup of dawn dish detergent and few drops of essential oil in a spray bottle.
- Shake the bottle for mixing up the ingredients properly.
- Now use it for cleaning glass windows, glass doors etc.
Hydrogen peroxide should be diluted, otherwise it can damage the glass and may even harm your skin if not carefully handled. The same caution applies to alcohol.
