I Did A Thing: Homemade Glass Cleaner

DIY Glass Cleaner:

Courtesy of Sedevilc:

1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 Tab cornstarch
2 cups water

Mix in spray bottle. Shake before using, the cornstarch settles over time.

The Result:

Normally I wouldn’t turn someone’s comment into a post, but once I saw the results, had to share.

This super simple DIY recipe from Sedevilc ends up being approximately 4/5 of a 32oz (or 946ml) bottle, similar to what you would find at the grocery store.

If you’re like me, you’re pretty bad at leaving streaks on glass and mirrors. At first, it looks as though this isn’t going to work, but give it a few seconds of wiping and not only is the surface spotless, it is impossible to leave streaks.

What really impressed me is how well it cleaned the glass surface inside of my gas fireplace seen in the header image. I have never been able to get it so clean!

  1. Ahem . . . I have many things upon which you could continue the cleaning experiments. You know, as a scientific control. Feel free to start in the kitchen.
