Easy Homemade Glass and Window Cleaner Recipe

I love it when I find DIY recipes that are easy, cheap, and equally as effective as their chemically-laden, store-bought counterparts…and this recipe fits that bill!


This homemade glass and window cleaner uses just 2 ingredients so it literally costs pennies to make.  It takes only a few minutes to get ready and it leaves your mirrors and windows super clean and streak free.


  • 1/2 cup white vinegar (I bet you can use apple cider vinegar but I’ve never personally tried it)
  • 3 cups water


1.  Pour your vinegar and water into a spray bottle.  I re-purposed an old glass vinegar bottle and just added a spray top from a plastic bottle (I prefer glass but it’s not necessary).

2.  Shake well before use.

3. Spray the mixture on the mirror/window you are cleaning and then wipe surface with a paper towel or a microfiber towel.

4.  Follow up with another dry paper towel or microfiber towel so that the surface is completely dry.
