Look of the Week: Homemade Glass Cleaner

No matter how many windows (or how large), a good cleaning always makes a house feel brighter, cleaner, and newer. When we ran out of our favorite all-natural window cleaner, I searched online for homemade recipes and found this one, which seems to be the go-to homemade blend:

1/4 Cup rubbing alcohol
1/4 Cup white vinegar
2 Cups water
1 Tbsp cornstarch

Just mix it up in an empty spray bottle (which can then be re-used/refilled) and go to town on your windows and mirrors! It works surprisingly well and with no fumes. Just shake before using. You can also add a drop of  natural food coloring so other members of the household will know it's not just water.
