Clean, green & cheap: best glass cleaner tip
People often want to switch to organic / green cleaning products but are put off by the higher prices. And indeed sometimes it seems that the same companies who bring you toxic sludge are now slapping on a green label, adding an extra 25% to the price and marketing themselves as the latest green thing. But sometimes going sustainable really can be cheaper and easier.
For cleaning glass use a mix of 1 part water to 1 part vinegar. If you make up a batch and put it into a spray bottle it’ll be ready whenever you need some squeaky clean, streak free shine on your windows! (Use up your windex and refill the bottle with this, you’ll be recycling the bottle too).
There is a bit of a vinegar smell, but it fades very quickly.
And the best part… I priced out various green cleaners at between $3.99 and $5.49 for a 32oz bottle. The same quantity of vinegar was only $1.99 and thats going to be diluted by half, so you are spending only 99c for the same amount of cleaner. Thats a savings of 75% at least!
