How to Clean Glass & Mirrors
Cleaning the glass and mirrors in your home can be daunting if you don't have the right tools. Below is a list of my FAVORITE Glass/Mirror cleaning MUST HAVES:
Spray bottle - glass or plastic - 16oz or larger
water - can use distilled if you have hard water
For a 16oz squirt bottle: 1 1/2 cups water, 1 1/2 tbsp white vinegar, 1 1/2 tbsp rubbing alcohol, 3 drops essential oil
Mix directly in your bottle. (Double the recipe for larger bottles.)
((((For electronic screens (tv, computers, phones, etc) you do not want to use this recipe. Make sure to follow the user manual for proper instructions. One thing that ALWAYS works is a microfiber cloth that has been dampened LIGHTLY. Use this on your screens - be gentle and take care not to rub in circles - especially not small, tight circles, as this can damage your screen irrevocably.))))
How to use:
You never want to squirt your cleaners directly on the surfaces, always spray into your cloth and then use the cloth to wipe your surface. I find with microfiber cloths that it doesn't matter which direction you wash - it cleans beautifully.
If you find that your surfaces are really grimey, you might want to clean with the same recipe but add in a couple drops of Dawn Dish soap. This recipe you can spray right on the grime and let it sit a couple seconds and then scrub off. You might need to rinse it if you have too much soap in your recipe.
Having clean windows and mirrors can make a huge impact on how clean your home looks AND feels. Whether it be your curio, coffee tables, mirrors or windows - having them clean and spot free is a WOW factor! I feel like the microfiber cloth makes a HUGE difference on how well my glass/mirror surfaces get clean. There is no rubbing or scrubbing - just a quick wipe down and I am done. Easy peasy.
No matter your window/glass cleaning needs, you can always count on this recipe!
Make it a great one!!
