When it comes to cleaning glass, you’ve got to be sure to use the proper cleaner and equipment to prevent streaking. While a traditional glass cleaner is always a good option, there’s a DIY option that might save you some cash.

All you need to make a simple, DIY glass cleaner is vinegar, water, and dish soap.

To create the cleaner, combine equal parts water and distilled white vinegar in a spray bottle. Then, add a few drops of dish soap and shake it all up. Spray the mixture onto a microfiber cloth (microfiber will prevent lint and streaks from being left behind) and clean your windows or mirrors as normal.

You shouldn’t need much of the mixture to clean, so a little will go a long way. Since you’ve likely already got the ingredients on hand (and because they are affordable even if you need to purchase them), opting for this DIY option is a great way to save money on cleaning supplies or get your mirrors clean when you’re in a pinch and forgot to grab some Windex.
