Do you have trouble with stubborn stains on the kitchen table or annoying smudges on the bathroom mirror?

Here is a sustainable cleaning solution that won't break the bank.

This recipe is for an incredibly effective window cleaner that also doubles as a versatile cleaning agent for many surfaces. With this spray, you'll be well-equipped to tackle various cleaning tasks!

What You Need:

  • Household Vinegar (about 10%): 2 dl

  • Eco-friendly Dish Soap: 5 drops

  • Water: 3 dl

  • Empty Spray Bottle: (reuse a vinegar bottle and an old spray top)

How to Make It:

  1. Mix Everything Together: Pour the vinegar, dish soap, and water into the spray bottle.

  2. Attach the Spray Top: Screw on the spray top and give it a gentle shake.

  3. Ready to Use: Your homemade cleaning spray is good to go!

Tips for Use:

  • Spray Setting: Make sure your spray top is set to a stream rather than a mist. This way, it won’t smell too much like vinegar, and you won't breathe in the spray.

  • Safety First: Be careful with vinegar; keep it away from your eyes and don’t use it on natural stone surfaces because the acid can damage them. Keep the spray out of reach of kids.

This simple, effective, and eco-friendly cleaning solution is not only great for windows but also works on many other surfaces, making it a must-have for your cleaning supplies.
