Homemade Window Cleaner

When I was a child, my mother was able to stay at home during the day. I was able to be right beside her as she went about her household routines.  Weekly her housecleaning items came out for 'cleaning day'.  She loved to use the same items - for years(!) and the smells of some of these products to this day bring up memories of 'cleaning with mama'.  Pledge furniture polish, Joy dish soap, Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner and Windex for the glass. 

Although I still love those products, I'm not a lifelong faithful user!  Variety is more my speed, new scents, improved versions, different brands and on occasion a do it yourself cleaning product are what keeps my home clean and happy.

Here is a nice do it yourself glass cleaner where I can incorporate my love for essential oils!

2 cups water
2 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoon rubbing alcohol
5 drops peppermint essential oil

Add ingredients to a spray bottle and shake well. Spray windows or mirrors and wipe dry with a cloth. Store in a cool place for 1-2 months.

or one with a lemon twist
16-ounce spray bottle
1 1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup distilled water
8 drops of any citrus oil of your choice (could use Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, Wild Orange, or a combination)
Add vinegar, water, and essential oil(s) to spray bottle and shake. You are ready to clean!

A good cleaner that smells fabulous!  Works for me...until next time!
