Glass + Mirror Cleaner

  • 1 cup water

  1. Thanks for this great post! I have been wondering what i can use. Now I use store-bought glass cleaner and microfiber cloth.

    I have a question about the essitial oil – how long does the smell stay? Or is it just to hide the vinegar smell?? :)

    • This solution and a microfiber cloth is what we currently use and it works great. The smell of the oil does not linger, but it smells much better than the vinegar.

    • Hi Trine!
      I only use the essential oil to mask the vinegar smell while I’m cleaning – it lingers a little, but not long.

    I’ve seen this pairing recommended at different strengths and haven’t tried it yet. How did you decide 1:1 vinegar to water?

  3. Hi, what’s a good trick for cleaning inside your windshield to prevent window fog?

    Where do you buy the essential oils?

    • You can get them from a health food store or a store like Whole Foods, Amazon (see the shop on my sidebar)…I also like doTERRA brand and Beeyoutiful brand as well.
