I am still on a ‘Spring’ clean here and up next was the window washing. I found out that you don’t need to use glass cleaner to clean your windows, you can easily make your own.

DIY window cleaner

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 3 drops of dishwashing liquid


  1. Add all the ingredients to a spray bottle and shake well to combine.
  2. Spray your window.
  3. Use a towel or cloth to wipe off the dirt and spray.
  4. Buff window with newspaper.

That’s it!

It worked perfectly for me, try it out and let me know how you go. Please add comment below.

  • Thank you for such an easy and economical alternative to spraying chemicals. I have even had trouble with spray cans leaving streaks – and the fumes that get up my nose while I’m doing it, I get the sneezes! My grandkids often come to visit and I’ve been reluctant to clean their little fingerprint pictures off the mirrors, not any more. Again thanks.
