Homemade Glass Cleaner

We've been using homemade cleaning products for years.
With lil' guy's sensitivities, it only made sense.
The bonus is that it cost just pennies
to keep our home spic-n-span.

Up to now, I've been using a recipe
that included rubbing alcohol.
I decided to try this one when I came upon it
in the book by Renee Loux called Easy Green Living.
It works quite well,
so the switch has been made.

Clear and Clean Glass Spray
1/4 C white distilled vinegar
1/2 t liquid soap (we love Dr. Bronner's peppermint)
1 3/4 C water
8 drops essential oil
(Since we used peppermint soap,
we omitted the essential oil).

Mix all ingredients in a bowl.

We reuse a spray bottle from a cleaner used long ago...

It's clearly marked so that anyone can feel free to use it...

Our Sunday paper is the perfect material to wipe away
dust and smudges.
Then it goes right into the recycle bin!

Simple, practical and economical.
A winning combination !
