“I don't do a lot of window cleaning . . . as little as possible, actually. LOL However, I recently decided my front and back storm doors needed a thorough cleaning. A quick perusal, of my cleaning supplies, revealed that I didn't have a natural window cleaner. So, when when I was in the "Organic" Aisle, at the grocery store, I decided to check out window cleaners. After seeing that they were costing around $3.00+ for what appeared to be mostly vinegar and/or ammonia, I decided that was a no brainer, and came home, to make my own. After looking online, for a recipe, and not finding one, that didn’t use ammonia, which makes me sick, I made up my own . . . and it works REALLY well!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 1 cup water (Filtered)
  • 1 cup vodka (Cheap)
  • 3 teaspoons dish cleaner (Orange Dish Soap, CitraDish)
  • 2 teaspoons cleaner (Orange, CitraSolve)


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a quart size canning jar. Pour into a 16 ounce spray bottle.
  2. Shake well, to distribute orange cleaner, which tends to rise to the top, of the liquid.
  3. Spray liberally onto glass, and use two microfiber cloths . . . One to get the dirt off, and one to wipe window dry.
  4. NOTE: I prefer to NOT use newspaper, due to the ink, which could be toxic.
  5. NOTE 2: If you are especially "chemically sensitive", you could use Castille Soap, in place of the Orange Cleaner and dish soap. The reason, that I use Vodka, instead of Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol, is that this is petroleum based, and I am hypersensitive to petrochemicals.
