The average American household spends about 40 to 50 dollars each month on cleaning supplies for their house. If you’re trying to save money, that is almost 540 dollars each year just on cleaning supplies. But what if we told you that you could save almost 25 dollars each month (300 dollars each year) on cleaning supplies if you use homemade glass cleaner! A lot of people think you need the expensive brands for cleaning something like glass, because of course you want that no-streak, sparklingly smooth, finish every time. The truth is, however, as long as you have some vinegar and access to water, you can get that clean finish every single time! Using an 80 to 20 ratio of water to vinegar ( 50 to 50 when dealing with hard water stains! However, that much vinegar can be very acidic on glass, so use with caution!) will clean ANY glass surface you have. However, be careful around places that aren’t glass! Vinegar is very acidic, so having it come in contact with some types of stone, like granite and marble, or regular stone tiles, will have it erode over time, meaning the beautiful finish will fade away! So be sure to be precise and do your research beforehand!!
Here is how you properly clean your windows with water and vinegar: First, put your rationed vinegar and water into a spray bottle! Then, spray generously with the solution and, with a paper towel or a rag, start using circular motions until the cleaner is equally distributed and the window looks dry! We then recommend you use a dry microfiber cloth and buff gently until all streaks are gone.
IF YOUR GLASS IS TREATED (using clear shield or others) make sure you contact the manufacturer of the product, so that you use appropriate cleaners.
