Tired of stretching those dollars as far as they’ll go? Why not make your own household cleaners?
You can have a lot of fun making your own signature scented window cleaner by mixing a drop of this (cinnamon) and a drop of that (orange).
12 to 16 ounces water
1/2 cup white or apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup rubbing alcohol (70%)
1-2 drops blue or green food coloring, if desired
1-2 drops lavender, cinnamon, clove or orange essential oil
Combine the above ingredients and pour into a labeled spray bottle. It will not only clean your glass and mirrors, but leave your home smelling sweet and refreshing as well.
Here’s a hint: Use newspapers rather than paper towels, because they leave no lint and you are recycling!
1. Spray the newspaper first, then wipe down the window to avoid drips.
2. Wipe vertically one side of the window and horizontally on the other side so you will know which side a streak is on!
This bottle of nice-smelling window cleaner can cost as little as 25 cents and also works well on mirrors or glass shower doors.
