DIY Pauls Window Cleaner

Sometimes commercial cleaning detergents can be harmful to the environment as well as irritating to sensitive skin. Store brands of glass cleaner usually contain harmful chemicals such as ammonia which can trigger the sinuses as well

 Here are some easy and efficient  ways to save money, the environment, and your skin by creating your own glass cleaner. Mix this up and give it a go – with the fresh crisp scent of eucalyptus and shiny, streak free glass you’ll never go back to buying commercial window cleaners again.

PAULS’s DIY Window Cleaner

You’ll need:

1 cup water

¼ cup white vinegar

2-3 drops of dishwashing liquid (natural if possible)

5 drops or ¼ teaspoon Eucalyptus Oil

Directions: Combine water, white vinegar and dishwashing liquid in an empty spray bottle.  Add essential oils and shake to combine.  For best results on windows, use scrunched up newspaper or window towel to wipe away dirt and bring up a nice shine.

…. This spray is also brilliant for cleaning those smudgy fingerprints kids or grandkids like to leave on your dishwasher, fridge, cabinets or other toddler-height surfaces.



It’s best to use distilled white vinegar only because flavoured vinegars such as apple cider will streak glass.

In marble cleaning, avoid using vinegar mixtures on marble as it will etch the surface and cause damage.
