Glass & Window Cleaner – Day 13 – 31 Days of DIY Cleaners


Glass cleaner doesn’t have to be blue to work well!  Glass cleaner is usually about $3-$4, so this is a great savings considering the key ingredient, white vinegar, is something that you likely have at home already. To help cover the scent of vinegar, you can add a few drops of essential oils or you can use citrus infused vinegar (soak vinegar with citrus fruit peels and leave for 4 weeks in a sealed jar.  Strain well and use as scented vinegar – the oils will not streak glass).

  • 1 cup white vinegar (OR scented vinegar)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Add to a clean spray bottle and shake well.

  1. There are several different kinds of glass cleaners on the market nowadays. Window and glass cleaners are created with mostly water. You require the very best car window cleaners so you can clear dirt from your windshield.

  2. Between my curious toddler and overly-hyper canine, I am always cleaning windows and glass surfaces. I cant wait to try using coffee filters instead of paper towels for the lint free finish, Thanks for the tip!

  3. I have noticed cleaner recipes are not consistent on this site. Here, her glass cleaner is water, vinegar, and cornstarch. In another post it is 1-1/2 C water, 1/4 C vinegar, 1/4 C rubbing alcohol.

    • Hi Dee – There are a few different ways to make an effective glass cleaner, each with its own merits. Generally, water in vinegar are essentials, but sometimes other ingredients have added benefits. In the case of corn starch, this results in a more heavy duty outdoor glass cleaner.

  4. Hi There Melissa I have been trying to clean the bottom of my casserole dishes which are all clear pie plates which are all clear glass pie plate. Of course I don’t back pies in them silly.. I don’t use them to make pies we bake all kinds of things in them so they have all kinds of grease build up. of food. chicken, fish mostly fish.. But I’ve looked through your videos and I can’t seem to find it maybe I’m just not putting the right words in the search bar.. Not getting dishwasher until may please help OCD about cleanliness.

  5. I think what you are doing is great, trying to find more environmentally better products to use. I would say for most though, a cheap squeegee and a tiny amount of washing up liquid to water will clean your windows better than anything else.
