DIY Glass & Mirror Spray. Try this and you’ll never go back – it costs pennies to make, smells clean, and works so well. Let us know what you think of it!
- 1 cup distilled water (or tap water if it’s not hard water)
- 1 cup white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon rubbing alcohol (at least 70% isopropyl)
- 1-2 drops of dish soap (optional, for added cleaning power)
- A clean spray bottle
- Start by thoroughly cleaning the spray bottle if it has been used for other substances previously. Rinse it out to make sure there are no residual chemicals or odors.
- Measure 1 cup of distilled water and pour it into the spray bottle. Distilled water is preferred because it doesn’t contain minerals that can leave streaks on glass and mirrors.
- Measure 1 cup of white vinegar and add it to the spray bottle. White vinegar helps to cut through grease and grime on glass surfaces.
- Add 1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol to the mixture. Rubbing alcohol aids in the quick evaporation of the liquid, preventing streaks.
- If you prefer a slightly sudsy cleaner, you can add 1-2 drops of dish soap. However, be cautious not to add too much, as it can leave behind a soapy residue. Swirl the mixture gently to combine all the ingredients.
- Screw the spray nozzle onto the bottle and give it a good shake to ensure everything is well-mixed.
- To use the DIY glass and mirror spray, simply spray it onto the surface you want to clean and then wipe it off with a clean, lint-free cloth or paper towel. Use a circular motion to remove any streaks or smudges.
- For stubborn spots or streaks, you can reapply the spray and let it sit for a minute before wiping it off.
- Store the leftover spray in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight. Make sure to label the bottle so you remember what it contains.
