If you want to know how you can make a glass cleaner with vinegar, you’ve visited the right site. I love cleaning with natural, non-toxic products. So let’s begin with the simplest recipe for making glass gleam.

Mix one cup each of white vinegar, rubbing alcohol, and water. This cleaner is the best way to clean glass shower doors with hard water stains, as it cuts through hard water spots and dirt but evaporate quickly.
Try this recipe if you have an accidental overspill of spray paint when completing an art project. Removing spray paint from a glass surface with this DIY glass cleaner is simple and effective.
Or you can create a pleasantly-scented version with two cups of distilled water and two tablespoons of vinegar. Add ten drops of your favorite essential oil, and it will smell fabulous.
But what about streaks? You can overcome this annoying problem by adding cornstarch to the recipe. Combine a quarter-cup each of rubbing alcohol and white vinegar with two cups of water. Then stir in one tablespoon of cornstarch.Be sure to wipe this particular cleaner completely dry to remove all the residue. Then you can enjoy the streak-free shine.
To get clearer visibility when driving in bad weather or at night, clean headlights with vinegar. If the vinegar alone doesn’t clear all the fogginess, you can mix in the rubbing alcohol and cornstarch. That should take care of the dullness and your headlights will shine brightly once again.
Again, if you prefer aromatic products, add essential oil to your favorite vinegar cleaner. The oil diminishes the vinegar odor to leave a fresh scent in the air. Some popular choices are peppermint, lemon, and orange oils.
Another pro tip is to use a microfiber cloth to clean the glass. It shouldn’t leave lint behind and it’s best for removing any residue.
Finally, if you have a glass cooktop, you’ll want the next recipe. Instead of an expensive cleaner, just use baking soda and dishwashing liquid. It’s abrasive enough to remove baked-on food but it won’t scratch the surface.
