We all love to enjoy the appearance of bright, clear windows, but the constant chore of keeping them that way can be a huge time commitment. Glass Doctor Seattle has our own high-end industrial glass cleaners, but there are many different DIY solutions to getting a strong, effective window glass cleaner using ingredients you probably have in your home right now. Here’s one that uses just three ingredients and another that’s a little more powerful. Regardless of what you choose (results may vary), the benefits are the same. Here are 3 reasons why you should make your own window cleaning solution at home:
Three ingredients constitute a cocktail – why overcomplicate the formula for glass cleaners? Many store brands use additives including ammonium hydroxide, artificial fragrances, and dyes. You should also consider what goes into making a glass cleaner (or any sort of cleaning product) before you introduce it into your home.
2. It Can Save You Money
Gathering the ingredients separately and making the solution yourself could cost you less in the long run, but your results may vary. Talk with your glass supplier about the best way to care for your glass in your specific climate.
3. It’s Better for the Environment
Many commercial glass cleaners contain harmful chemicals that could do damage to your home and the environment. When you use fewer ingredients, there’s a better chance your cleaning solution won’t do any harm to the environment. Again, check the ingredients carefully before buying any form of cleaning agent. Not all commercial cleaners are harmful, after all.
