With growing awareness of the benefits of using natural products in our homes, more people are turning to alternative cleaning solutions. Whether you want to spruce up bifold doors in Worcester or skylights in Aberdeen, homemade cleaning products are taking the nation by storm. One popular item that is easy to make is eco-friendly glass cleaner.
Why make homemade glass cleaner?
Store-bought cleaning products contain an array of chemicals to produce their cleaning power. The disadvantage to this is that it can lead to a build-up of toxicity within the home. In particular, glass cleaners often contain ammonia, which can trigger respiratory issues such as asthma, irritation to the nose and throat, and headaches.
More problems arise when we mix different cleaning chemicals by using more than one product at once. As explained by Science Direct, the mixing of different chemicals can cause a corrosive effect that may lead to respiratory conditions.
Thankfully, there are natural solutions for cleaning glass that work just as well as commercial products. And they are kinder to your wallet too.
Making glass cleaner
One of the most powerful cleaning ingredients that you can use to make your glass cleaner is white vinegar. Not only does this zap through grease and grime, but it also kills germs. All you need to make an effective glass cleaner is:
