Windex Glass Cleaner ingredients
What I've found is a cheaper, DIY solution which is just as good, but, I think, is a better glass cleaner than Windex. And it only takes 4 ingredients mixed in some water. How easy is that!?
- 2 cups of WARM water
- 1 tablespoon of corn starch (yes, that's right- cornstarch)
- 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol
- 1/4 cup of white vinegar
- Small squirt of Dawn
I have gone slightly crazy (I know, it's not shocking) and I have cleaned almost every window and mirror in my home with the three window cleaners that I have:
Earth Friendly Window Cleaner
My Fake Windex
I seriously sat back and stared at each one and, at first, I couldn't see the difference between the Windex and the DIY window cleaner that I made. The Earth Friendly Cleaner was obviously the loser. Goodbye!
What I did notice was that the Windex sometimes required scrubbing. The fake windex barely needed anything except a simple wipe, with the exception of really gunky stuff. They both had very mild streaking, but I don't think I'm being biased by saying that the DIY windex had less of a cloudy look after. I'm very happy with the fake windex!
Concerning the DIY Windex, just make sure you don't get the window too wet or it'll streak! Finding the perfect amount does take some getting used to.
- Use two paper towels to clean the DIY Windex: one to do the initial clean and another to wipe off any excess.
- Use one paper towel and spray it directly with the DIY windex and clean with that.
I really did try to take pictures of everything after my cleaning spree, but none of the pictures I had really showed the difference between the products. I guess that's what I get for only using an iPhone camera to take pictures. In person, there was a definite difference.
It's awesome that it cleans well, but the best thing is the price!!
Corn Starch: $2.50
Rubbing Alcohol: $2
White Vinegar (gallon): $4
Total: $11 for all the supplies, but if you break it down into cost per bottle
Corn Starch: $0.08
Rubbing Alcohol: $0.25
Total per BOTTLE: $0.41Savings: A lot.
