  1. I love love love this window cleaner recipe. My windows and mirrors have never been cleaner and I’m not breathing in toxic fumes. I recycled my old Koh spray bottle and use this cleaner instead. So much better and longer lasting results

  2. I absolutely love the window cleaning recipe you use as my per hate is cleaning windows as I have fybromyalgia and it kills me to do them but this recipe had made life so much easier to do windows….?

  3. The is great for cleaning granite bench tops too- it’s great to know that food prep areas won’t come into contact with harmful chemicals

  4. Love this window cleaner. I also use it on my car I windows and caravan windows. It’s better than anything I have ever used before this.
    It’s amazing.

  5. Krissy,

    Do the essential oils serve a purpose other than fragrance?
    I purchased your book and now share recipes with my daughters .
    We are very keen followers.

      • This recipe isn’t just good for cleaning windows, I use it to clean the mirrors and the glass wall and door of my shower. Until I tried this, they seemed to be clean, especially with a messy 3 year old in the house.

    • We recently had to get my mother’s house ready for sale and bit was a big job. I went armed with all of your cleaning receipes made up. Citrus cleaner, window spray , cleaning spray, cleaning paste cleaning fizzers everything. Made our job so much easier and being able to breathe easy was a bonus

    • I used to use natural cleaners from your site when my 1st born was a baby but then life got busy and we fell into the trap of buying commercial chemicals again.

      Now my 2nd baby is 1 and loves to lick EVERYTHING! I have been reminded how important these natural cleaners are.

      Today my 5year old made this window cleaner by herself to clean her wardobe mirrors.

      Her review is “It is very good and you could even clean your plates. Cleaning makes your dreams come true.”

      It is streak free and leaves no residue! Thanks Krissy.

  6. I am so pleased to get this recipe. I use water, vinegar and a touch of liquid soap in my window cleaner. Generally this works well but when I use it on our glass display cabinet in our shop (which is getting sanitised / disinfected several times a day) I cannot remove the smear finish that is left. I have tried straight vinegar and that doesn’t work. I am almost tempted to buy a commercial cleaner but that would really be a last resort as I hate those things.

    Do you have any suggestions or ideas? (by the way, I am in Melbourne lock down and all my cleaning ingredients are at our home in the country and I am reluctant to duplicate large quantities of things).

    Many thanks
