Make Your Own Window Cleaner

A pink-gloved hand wipes a window; words say โ€œMake Your Own Window Cleaner"Did you know that making your own household cleaners is not only great for the environment but also for your wallet and health? ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’ฐ

๐Ÿ‘‰ By DIY-ing your cleaners, you can significantly cut down on waste by reusing containers and reducing the need for single-use plastic bottles. Plus, you’ll save some cash along the way! ๐Ÿ’ธ

๐ŸŒฑ Homemade cleaners can be made with simple, natural ingredients, making them non-toxic and safer for your family, pets, and the planet. No harsh chemicals, no worries! Hereโ€™s an easy glass and window cleaner that can be made with ingredients you may have in your home already:

-1 quart warm water
-1/4 cup white vinegar (or 2 tablespoons lemon juice)
Mix ingredients and store in a spray bottle.

๐Ÿ” Remember, traditional household cleaners and disinfectants are considered household hazardous waste and should be disposed of properly at a HHW (Household Hazardous Waste) facility. In San Bernardino County, our Household Hazardous Waste Collection Facilities are managed by the San Bernardino County Fire Department. Visit or call 1.800.OILY.CAT (645.9228) to locate a collection site near you.
