Natural Streak Free Glass Cleaner, the end all to glass cleaners
I love the simplicity of making homemade cleaners. If I use up a cleaner, I don’t have to run out to the store to buy another, nor am I adding more plastic to our landfills. Best of all, I can make them with all natural ingredients! Speaking of natural ingredients, if you are looking for a natural dust spray that doubles as a wood polish, then grab my recipe for a Lemon Cedar Dust Spray. With it and today’s natural cleaning recipe, you can skip the burn that chemical cleaners give your nose. If you’ve ever used a blue liquid to clean glass, you know what I am talking about. And you won’t need to open a window to ventilate the air either. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience, read full disclosure policy.
So, what is the best thing to use to clean glass?
The answer to that question includes a few tried and true ingredients and a little secret I discovered! I am sure water, vinegar, and even rubbing alcohol come as no surprise. But, have you ever used cornstarch or lemon essential oil in a glass cleaner? Cornstarch gives this natural glass cleaner scrubbing power and the lemon essential oil is a natural degreaser. It works with the rubbing alcohol for a streak free finish.
What else can I clean with it?
If you’ve ever purchased a professional mirror or photo frame cleaner than you know it does not spray on in a dripping liquid form. It sprays on in a foam. This recipe creates that professional foam spray without chemicals. And it’s incredible for cleaning photo frames, mirrors, windows, and glass cupboard doors.
