A brown bottle filled with DIY glass cleaner on a kitchen counter

DIY Glass Cleaner

  • Total Time: 2 minutes (excludes chilling time)
  • Yield: 1x 500 ml spray bottle 1x


An effective DIY glass cleaner that easily gets rid of water stains and fingerprints on windows and mirrors and leaves surfaces streak-free. 


  • 120 ml ethanol, at least 70% alcohol (1/2 cup)
  • 120 ml distilled white vinegar (1/2 cup)
  • 240 ml boiled water (1 cup), cooled down to room temperature
  • spray bottle of choice*


Add all the ingredients to a spray bottle and shake to combine. 


*If you upcycle a spray bottle from a store-bought cleaner, make sure to not just rinse the bottle but also spray the water out several times to clean the dispenser thoroughly. This is important to avoid any chemical reaction between residue from the store-bought cleaner and your DIY cleaner.

Do not use this DIY cleaner for laptop or other appliance screens.
