One of the things I love most about using essential oils is that they are not only great for your health, but great to use as household cleaners too. I don’t have to store a bunch of chemicals in my home to clean my home.
And honestly, I HATE cleaning. I want something that is going to be super quick and easy and give me the results I want. “Get in, get out” is my mantra when it comes to cleaning.
Having the products already on hand, it really could not be any easier and today I’m going to share with you a simple trick of how to get truly streak free mirrors and windows in your home as well (did I tell you my mom used to be a self-employed housekeeper all her life)?
Which explains why I hate cleaning, right?! As a child, I had, yep, you guessed it, to go with her on her jobs and help clean up other people’s homes!
The good news is that I know a lot of solutions and tricks on how to clean properly and quickly. The bad news is, I never want to apply them because I never wanna clean! LOL.
Here’s THE BEST homemade 3 ingredient window cleaner recipe you can find…
DIY 3 Ingredient Window Cleaner Without Alcohol
- 16-ounce glass spray bottle (must be glass due to the particular oils being used)
- 1 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1/2 cup distilled water (honestly, I just use tap water….shhhh!)
- 10 drops of Lemon essential oil (really you could use any citrus oil like Lime, Grapefruit, Orange, etc, but I find Lemon works best for me)
Add vinegar, water, and the essential oil to your glass spray bottle and shake it well. Donezo! It really is that simple!
Brilliant Trick: Instead of cleaning with paper towel like everyone does, use wadded up newspaper instead. It won’t scratch your windows and mirrors and literally gives you that streak-free, beautiful shine. I have no idea why it works so well, but this is the #1 trick to having great looking windows in your home (indoor and outdoor) that look like a professional cleaned them!
