How to Make Natural Mirror Cleaner

Natural mirror cleaner is a classic DIY cleaning recipe.  What makes this recipe so great is that it’s simple and effective.  It also allows you to re-purpose old newspapers rather than purchasing paper towels.

 Natural Windex is also big money saver compared to the cost of traditional Windex.  A gallon (128 oz) of vinegar is approximately $3 (or less) which yields 8 32 oz bottles of mirror cleaner.  The cost per bottle is only $0.38!  

The cost of a single 32 oz bottle of Windex which is $3 or more.  If you were to buy 8 bottles of Windex it would be over $24.  Even if you purchased generic Windex at the dollar store it would cost $1 per bottle verses $0.38 for the DIY recipe. Lastly, making your own mirror cleaner allows you to reuse the same spray bottle; cutting down on the number of plastic that will end up in a landfill or need to be recycled.
