You don’t need Windex to get sparkling windows. This homemade window cleaner is hands down the best one we’ve ever tried! Best of all? It’s a super easy and super cheap to make.
I know, I know what you are thinking, that maybe I lost my mind or that I just went a little bit overboard with the “the best” or maybe you are thinking that all homemade window cleaners and just horrible and there’s no way this is going to be different.
But my friend, that’s not the case! I didn’t go completely crazy, I’m not exaggerating, and while you are totally right and most window cleaners are just “blah”, this one is so different and so good you would only need to try it once to be on board with me.
But before deep diving into the nitty gritty details let’s talk about what we look for in a window cleaner. A good one should deep clean your windows, removing all the dirt and dust that gets stuck there. At the same time they should leave windows sparkling and streak-free. That’s what I look for, anyway.
How to Make Homemade Window Cleaner
This homemade window cleaner does all that and more. (That’s why I insist it is the best window cleaner ever). It’s soapy, which in my opinion, makes all difference. It has baking powder that helps to remove even the most stuck-on dirt, and it’s jam-packed with vinegar that not only gets rid of the watermarks but also leave the windows looking new.
I whip up a batch every time I clean the windows. I don’t recommend making more than what you need because when it’s fresh it’s more powerful, but if you want to make larger batches, keep it in an airtight container between uses.
