More and more, people are looking into ways to rid their lives of toxic substances. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is by making your own household cleaners. There are a ton of recipes online for cleaning solutions. Glass cleaners are a weekly, if not daily, use cleaner.
If you’re looking for a cheap, easy and non-toxic solution to your glass cleaning needs, I have the answer for you. Take the time and make your own glass cleaner at home. With a few inexpensive ingredients, you can throw together this easy cleaner in no time. And the best part? You don’t have to worry about toxic chemicals, or accidentally mixing the windex with the bleach producing a VERY toxic combination.
This recipe is made with essential oils and as such needs to be made in a glass bottle. High grade essential oils will degrade plastic quickly so it’s important that glass is used. The tinted aspect of the glass prevents the sun from degrading the essential oil. The best part, though, is how pretty the bottles are!
The Glass Cleaner Recipe
The recipe for the glass cleaner is really easy. You’ll need only three ingredients:
- Glass Spray Bottle
- 2 Cups of White Vinegar
- 2 Cups Water
- 10-20 drops Lemon Essential oil
Simply combine equal parts vinegar and water into the glass spray bottle, then add 10-20 drops of lemon essential oil. Mix until combined and begin using! It’s simple, cheap and completely non-toxic.
