In the meantime, here's my latest sustainable living action: homemade glass cleaner. On Wednesday, I ran out of the commercial, but supposedly "green," glass cleaner that I've been using. I've always been suspicious of it since it had a strong chemical-like odor. So it was the perfect opportunity to try the glass cleaner recipe that I found on Crunchy Betty's site. I had all the supplies on hand and it was super easy. I mixed it up and poured it into the rinsed out spray bottle that had contained the commercial product. I tried it on the mirror over my dresser and it did a good job. This cleaner is not only green, it is extremely economical as it only costs pennies to make.
1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 TBSP cornstarch
2 cups warm water.
Combine everything in a clean spray bottle and shake well.
