Okay, boys and girls, today I am going to show you how to make your very own homemade window cleaner, which I also use on all of my glass and mirrors as well.
Please feel free to just completely ignore me. ;)
I found the recipe for this homemade window cleaner in this great cookbook that you see here in the picture below.
Here is the very simple recipe for the window cleaner.
And here is everything that I used to make this cleaner. I did not have a "formal" gallon container for a cleaner, so I just used one of my old tea jugs, and it worked just fine.
The first step that I did was to add two cups of rubbing alcohol into the empty container.
Then I added 1/2 cup of ammonia.
Next it was time to add the water, but I did not fill it all the way up, because I needed to leave some room for the next ingredient to be added.
Now, it was time to add 1 teaspoon of dish washing liquid, like so.
Then I topped it off with just a little bit more water, just until the container was almost full.
Then I placed the cap back on the gallon container, and I gently shook it to mix all of the ingredients together.
Once all the ingredients were mixed together, it was time to pour them into the spray bottle. I recommend using a funnel to help you fill the spray bottle, because it is just too easy to make a BIG mess if you don't. (Not that that has ever happened to me, but I've heard stories.)
As you can see, I had an empty glass and window cleaner spray bottle, so I just refilled it.
Another little glass and window cleaning tip that I found (although for the life of me I cannot remember where) was to use a paper coffee filter in place of a paper towel when cleaning glass and mirrors. I have done this several times, and it works very well.
Now, if I could just find a recipe to make a "Rosie" robot like the Jetsons had...I would have it made.
