How to Make Window Cleaner like Windex

Lately we’ve been making and testing homemade products to help save our readers money.   I have seen a Homemade Window Cleaner and after looking around found 2 different recipes (formulas) to try.  I wanted to let you know how to make them and what I thought about them. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to get printable lists.

window cleaner recipe

The first one is very simple.  It only has a few ingredients and everything I already had in my home.  Just put all the ingredients in an empty spray bottle and shake.  I used a funnel to make it easier.  When done it filled about 1/2 my bottle and matched the color of the dishsoap which happened to be blue.

I used this on windows inside and outside my home.

It worked EXACTLY like Windex.

Not a cheap store brand, but seriously EXACTLY like the name brand product Windex.  There were absolutely NO streaks and it cleaned perfectly.  I also used it on some pretty dirty mirrors and got the same result.  It has a light sudsing when you spray, but does not hinder the way you use it.  It also has a light vinegar scent which was not bothersome at all.

The second mix I made was also simple, but took a few more ingredients.  Again I had all the ingredients in my home. I added the cornstarch after the warm water, but that was a mistake because cornstarch will make clumps.  Since I did it this way I had to shake it harder to get rid of the clumps.  I would recommend mixing the cornstarch with the cool vinegar ahead of time and then adding it to the warm water.  You probably won’t have the same issue I had.  This made about 3/4 bottle and is a white color.

I used this on windows inside and outside my home.

It also worked EXACTLY like Windex.

Again, just like the name brand Windex.  There were a couple of differences.  When I cleaned the windows outside it worked better on built up grime.  I think it’s because the cornstarch gives it a scrubbing effect (texture.)  The other thing I noticed was the smell.  It smells like Vinegar and Alcohol more than my sinus’ appreciated.  When using it inside I had to back off a little after I sprayed because the smell was bothersome.  Outside it made no difference.  You do have to shake this up after it’s been sitting for a while because the cornstarch begins to sit at the bottom.  It’s easy to shake it back up.

No matter what I will use both bottles of DIY Window Cleaner I made.

My thoughts:

The first recipe is better for indoor cleaning and the second recipe is better for outdoor grimy buildup cleaning.  Both are simple to make and take ingredients I had in my home.  After making this I doubt I will ever buy the store bought Window Cleaner again – unless it’s a very cuckoo deal.  This is absolutely cheaper and works the same.  Share your experiences with these recipes if you try them out.
