Sustainable Living 16

This is yet another installment in my sustainable living series.  I didn't realize how many I would come up with so didn't plan this well.  A blogger friend suggested I put a link on the blog to connect all of the sustainable tips but I haven't gotten around to it - and I'm not sure exactly how I'm going to do it.

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.

Glass Cleaner

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.
