Homemade Glass Cleaner

What's a mom to do when the kids make a mess on the bathroom mirror? Have them clean it with a natural, non-toxic alternative to Windex, of course! You probably have everything you need to make this in your pantry right now.

1 cup rubbing alcohol
1 cup water
1 tablespoon white vinegar
Pour into a clean spray bottle and fill with tap water.

Hand the spray bottle and a few clean rags to the kids and set them to work!
When the 5-year-old makes a mess on the bathroom mirror, he's responsible for cleaning it up!
All you need is 1 cup of rubbing alcohol, 1 cup of water, and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.
Give your homemade window cleaner to Mr. Messy and get him working.
He just might get so excited about cleaning that he'll do all the bathroom mirrors!

    I guess we all have a method. I just used water & white vinegar for mirrors & my windows & this works fine. O f course I got this tip from my Mom & she was right, it cleans it well. Thanks 4 sharing your idea. I always like other options I can use.

    You bet! My bathroom mirrors are horrible. I have tried straight alcohol on them, vinegar, but haven’t tried both together. Thank you! I cannot get streak-free mirrors, so I will try anything!!!
