No-Streak Non-Toxic DIY Glass Cleaner

No-Streak Non-Toxic DIY Glass Cleaner

Ok, I’m late to the party this spring. Between weird weather, allergies and an exceptionally busy Green Diva Studio schedule, I just haven’t had the pull to be outside playing much yet this spring. So recently,  the kids and my husband and I got started on setting up our deck, which is normally my favorite “office” this time of year!

Gracie, my pup, supervised … but there was an awful layer of pollen and dirt on EVERYTHING.

I ran in to get my usual non-toxic glass cleaner, but there was none left. Argh. So, I decided to get creative and make some. Grabbed the ingredients that seemed like they might work. Here’s what worked and worked much better than I thought it would!

GD Meg’s easy non-toxic, no-streak DIY glass cleaner:

  • 1/4 cup Dr. Bronner’s unscented baby mild castile soap (I keep this on hand for many of my homemade foaming soaps and other things)
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cup clean water (I always use my filtered water for stuff like this)

I used an old glass cleaner spray bottle (I keep these kinds of things around for just this reason)

Give it a really good shake to mix it up and keep it from curdling. Mine did have a could of white chunks in it after a couple of weeks, but it still worked beautifully and doesn’t seem to be a problem.

Here’s my clean and streak-free glass table as I write this post!

Listen to this great first Green Divas at Home podcast! Beth Greer, author of Supernatural Home, talked to us about a few common things found in our homes that could be aging us prematurely—yikes! Read Beth’s excellent post, too.

I can give this a try, although often, I just just water and vinegar on glass which often seems to work.

Hi guys! This is really fastidious blog, the great compilation of information that I enjoyed much. …
