Budget Buster - Window Cleaner

We had a great holiday weekend and then decided to take off for a little family fun. We took a quick run to Tennessee and enjoyed a few days in beautiful Pigeon Forge. One of the things we were most looking forward to was Cade's Cove. It was beautiful. We saw black bears crossing the road right in front of us and it was amazing and so fun to see.

By the time we got home form our lovely little get away, our car was in need of a little TLC. My dear husband is always a willing volunteer to clean up the car. I love that we get home from a trip and within a hour or two, the car is cleaned up, the kids and I have unpacked and put away the travel gear and we are ready to get back into the swing of things. 

Anyway, this post is about window cleaner. We go through massive amounts of it. Window cleaner is an essential cleaner in our home. My husband uses it in on the cars in the garage, I use it on the windows, mirrors and the glass in the picture frames of every room in the house.When I show you how easy and cheap it is to make yourself, you will be thrilled.  The ingredients are pretty simple and you probably have them in your home already.  You can use any dish detergent you would like.

I picked up a spray bottle at Wal Mart for $1.50.  Add two cups of water. 

Next in is a quarter cup of white vinegar. 

Last in is a drop or two of liquid dish soap.  That's it. 

Add a label and you are all set for some serious cleaning.  See?
