Shine Bright like a Diamond, Window Cleaning Edition

April 23, 2013

When it comes to cleaning, I like to take as natural an approach as possible. In my ideal world, the process of making my own cleaning products would always look more like whipping up something for lunch than concocting something to clean grime off my windows.  I’ve been making a vinegar-based solution to clean windows for a few years, but it wasn’t until recently that I discovered another secret ingredient–a pantry staple and an unexpected powerhouse for shine:

700 cornstarch  lemon  and vinegar

Above: My all-natural window cleaner is so safe and gentle that I mix it in the same kitchenware I use to prepare food.

700 glass cleaner made with cornstarch  lemon juice  vinegar  and water

Above: I brew the secret-ingredient window cleaner in 16-ounce batches and store it in a clean glass bottle.
