Homemade Window Cleaners Cheap and Easy
Here’s a few easy Homemade recipes to clean your windows with:
Mix 1/3 cup of ammonia in 1 gallon of warm water. If it is cold out add a 1/2 cup of rubbing alcohol to each quart of water to prevent ice from forming.
Another alternative is:
- 1/2 cup of ammonia
- 1 cup of white vinegar
- and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
- mix with a bucket of warm water
- 2 cups rubbing alcohol (70 percent isopropyl)
- 3/4 gallon of water
- –mix together than add
- 1/2 cup ammonia
- 1 tsp dish detergent (liquid)
- top with water until you have 1 gallon
- 2 cups water
- 3 TBS vinegar
- 1/2 tsp dish detergent (liquid)
- 2 TBSP cornstarch
- 1/2 cup household ammonia
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1 gallon warm water
Mix the ingredients in a bucket, make sure cornstarch is thoroughly dissolved before using.
- 1 gallon water

Store these solutions in spray bottles: (will also work on mirrors)
- One part vinegar added to four parts water
- One cup cold strong black tea with 3 TBS of vinegar
- If your window sills are spotted wiping them down with diluted rubbing alcohol will give it a fresh paint look
- Grease Spots? Leftover Cola will do the trick.
- Spray with preferred solution then wipe with crumpled newspapers. The newspaper helps prevent streaks.
- Using coffee filters to wipe can also give streak-free results (shared by Brenda in the comment section below).
- Avoid washing when the sun is hot and shining–it will dry too fast and there will be streaks.
- Also wash one side of the glass in an up and down direction, on the other side scrub side to side. This will help decide which side has the streaks that need to be polished out.
