How to Make Your Own Glass & Window Cleaner

DIY Window Cleaner - Vinegar and Cornflour to Clean Windows

Did you know you can make your own glass and window cleaner, that some swear is more effective than commercial brands, with just vinegar and cornflour?

We've infused ours with dried rose petals and added some essential oils too, which leave the space smelling beautiful and fresh.

Besides the infusion time, this is one of the quickest, easiest and most effective DIY cleaning products you can make, and here's how!

Glass & Window Cleaner Recipe



  1. Place the dried rose petals into a large glass jar and top with the white vinegar. If the lid of your jar is metallic, place some baking paper in between the jar and the lid to avoid the lid corroding. Let the mixture infuse for 48 hours, shaking occasionally. For a stronger infusion, leave for a week. You'll be left with a gorgeous pink colour.
  2. Once the infusion is complete, strain the vinegar mixture through a fine sieve or nut milk bag. Squeeze out excess liquid.
  3. Add the essential oil and cornstarch and shake.
  4. Pour the vinegar mixture into a spray bottle and top up with distilled water.

How to Use

Spray on windows, mirrors and other glass surfaces. Wipe off with crumpled newspaper or a microfibre cloth for shiny, streak free results.

We recommend you avoid using this spray on granite, stone and marble surfaces, as well as polished timber.

Keep in a cool place from direct sunlight and use within 6 months.

Shake well before each use.

This recipe makes enough to fill 1 x 500ml trigger spray bottle.
