Homemade Hippie Windex for .12 cents a bottle

Homemade Windex

1/4 C Rubbing Alcohol

1/2 C White Vinegar

1 1/4 C water

If you like: a splash of blue food coloring to fake out the haters in the household 

Pour all ingredients into a spray bottle and shake.

This couldn’t be easier! I figured out my price based on what I paid for the ingredients. I pay .06 cents for 1/2 cup of vinegar. I pay .06 cents for 1/2 cup of rubbing alcohol. I don’t add food coloring. I made a 16 ounce bottle of Windex for .12 cents! And it really does work. I’ve tried many window cleaner recipes with lots of unnecessary ingredients, and this works just as well as the real thing.

    I love making my own cleaning products! I haven’t tried window cleaner…mainly because I don’t have very many windows in our our under-construction home. It’s next on my list of things to make!

      Thank you for the comment. I try to be both eco-friendly and frugal in my approach to cleaning products. I would love to learn how to make soap next!

    I use equal parts of each, without food coloring. I use this on everything!! It makes my granite countertops and stainless steal appliances sparkle! I love how it leaves my windows clean and STREAK FREE, even when they are washed while the sunlight is on them. I love that its SAFE too!
