Look under the typical sink and there is bottle after bottle of cleaning products. A large collection of sprays, scrubs and other cleansers. Each bottle usually costs 2 to 6 dollars or more each. It adds up quickly. Rarely does any product truly work as well as the claims on the bottle. The cleaners are used once or twice and discarded to below the sink in favor of the next greatest cleaner and it’s promises. In addition, you add lots of unpronounceable chemicals to the surfaces of your home.
There is a new revolution in home cleaning. This revolution creates strong cleaners which perform well, taking you out of the expensive game of promises from commercial cleaners! It is creating your own cleansers with simple ingredients. While not chemical free, they contain a short list of easily pronounceable ingredients that are obtainable for a few dollars to make dozens of batches of cleaners. Save significant amounts of money and reduce the chemical exposure in your own home!
This glass cleaner should take less than 5 minutes to make. I have been using this formula for years to get sparkling clean glass and surfaces within my home. It is one of the simplest ways of saving a lot of money on cleaning supplies that I have found.
Grime Cutting Glass Cleaner
3 tbsp. Ammonia (scented, if desired)
1/2 cup Isopropyl Alcohol
1/4 tsp. Liquid Dish Detergent
Mix together the ammonia, alcohol and dish detergent together in a clean spray bottle. Clean spray bottles can be purchased at the dollar store. Gently swirl the liquids so they mix together. Fill the rest of the bottle with water.
Use this mixture just like you would a commercial glass cleaner. Spray onto the surface that you want cleaned and wipe off with a cloth or paper towel. For an extra sparkly finish to glass cleaning, use newspapers to dry the surface you are cleaning.
