I’m forever buying it and it can’t be that difficult to make it at home? Does anyone know how?

  • Methylated spirits. But a container full and pour about four tablespoons into an empty windex bottle, add drops dishwashing liquid and then 3/4 full with water. Shiny glass. Make sure to use only a cloth for glass.


  • Wow, you’re a keen window cleaner! Years ago a friend told me to spray windows with methylated spirits and wipe with newspaper til dry. I didn’t think it would work, but it does a really good good job


  • I use methylated spirits on my windows. Apply and rub off with scrunched up newspaper


  • Vinegar works well; however I do not know of an exact recipe for windex.


  • No idea, google or check out the ingredients on your bottle. I use vinegar and water.


  • Never heard of making it! Have you tried utube and google?, methylated spirits is also good


  • thanks bridgwll I will give that a go too


  • i just use cleaning vinegar and water


  • so great to have a recipe for this


  • Ok this one is from a Glazier, he swears by it, I knew I had the mix written down somewhere just found it, 100mls Vinegar, 100 mls of Metho & 200 mls of Water in a spray bottle. Don’t use newspaper as the ink has changed try a micro fibre cloth instead


  • water, metho and vinegar…. fantastic! I too will try this combo….


  • there are some good comments here


  • I used to clean display homes and woulda make my own using a little water, metho and dishwashing detergent


  • Very good question, I have also been interested in this.


  • Don’t waste your time and money. One of the best investments I’ve ever made was a set of quality microfibre cloths. There are ones for dirt and grime and ones for polishing, they are much better than ordinary cloths and no chemicals required, just water!
