If you’re like me, the beginning of autumn also means I must wash my windows. Dust, spiders, flies, and bugs have accumulated — not to mention the corn that got splattered during our day of freezing corn the other week. Yes, it’s still there……
However, it will be gone this week with some of my homemade window cleaner. This recipe is one of my all-time favorites!
I love how versatile and cheap it is. This gets used on not just our windows, but middle-of-the-week bathroom cleaning countertops, doorknobs, and sometimes even my dining room chairs when I’m in a hurry.
You will need only four ingredients, one squirt bottle, and then one empty gallon jug to store the extra in. I like to save a vinegar jug for this — works perfectly. Be sure to write what it is on the outside or you may mistakenly think it’s white vinegar!
This gets mixed all together in my mop bucket where I have a 2-gallon marker line.
1 quart rubbing alcohol
2 teaspoons dish soap *original recipe calls for Dawn, but I substitute in any degreasing dish soap I have on hand
1 cup ammonia
After mixing, add enough water to make it total two gallons. Once stirred, pour into your squirt bottle and empty gallon jug.
Sometimes I divide this in half, depending on how much cleaner I already have.
Stores well for a long, long time!
