What Is a Good Window Cleaning Solution?


Cleaning the windows can be a simple task, if you know what cleaning products to use. Although retail products are available, these can be costly and no more effective than a simple homemade solution. Instead, consider using inexpensive, easy-to-use ingredients that will clean your windows without hurting your wallet.


  • Vinegar is the perfect solution for window cleaning, as it cleans, deodorizes, and disinfects without leaving a greasy film behind. In a spray bottle, mix a solution of two cups water and one cup distilled white vinegar. Spray this solution onto your windows and wipe clean with a cloth or newspaper. Newspaper works effectively to clean windows without leaving streaks or lint specs behind.


  • Isopropyl rubbing alcohol is another effective homemade window cleaning solution. This alcohol provides a fast evaporating element that allows you to clean windows without the creation of streaks or films that some cleaning products produce. In a spray bottle, mix one cup rubbing alcohol, one cup water, and one teaspoon white vinegar (for disinfectant quality). Spray the solution onto windows and wipe clean with a soft towel or newspaper.


  • Ammonia is another strong cleaning agent that requires only a small amount to clean a large surface. In a spray bottle, mix one cup water, one teaspoon of no-suds ammonia, and an optional cup of rubbing alcohol. This is the strongest cleaning solution of the three mentioned and is best used on windows that have a thick layer of film or buildup, as the ammonia will quickly cut through dirt and grime. Spray the solution onto windows and wipe off with a cloth or newspaper.
