Are you tired of using harsh chemicals to clean your windows and mirrors? 

Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with these simple and effective tips and tricks for natural cleaning. 

Say goodbye to streaks and hello to sparkling clean windows and mirrors with these all-natural solutions.

Let’s get started.

Make Your Own Natural Window Cleaner

Mix together equal parts water and white vinegar in a spray bottle, then add a few drops of dish soap. Shake well and use as you would any commercial window cleaner. The vinegar and dish soap work together to cut through dirt and grime, while the water helps to rinse away streaks.

Use a Lint-Free Cloth

Avoid using paper towels or regular cloths to clean your windows and mirrors, as these can leave behind lint and streaks. Instead, use a lint-free cloth or newspaper to get a streak-free shine.

Use a Squeegee

A squeegee is a quick and easy way to wipe away dirt and grime from your windows and mirrors. 

Simply start at the top of the window and pull the squeegee down in a straight line, wiping the blade after each pass. This will help to prevent streaks and make cleaning your windows and mirrors a breeze.

Try Using Toothpaste

Toothpaste is a surprising but effective natural cleaner for mirrors. 

Simply apply a small amount of toothpaste to a lint-free cloth and use it to scrub your mirror in circular motions. Rinse with water and buff dry for a streak-free shine.

Use a Natural All-Purpose Cleaner

If you don’t want to make your own window cleaner, you can use a natural all-purpose cleaner to clean your windows and mirrors. 

Simply mix together equal parts water and vinegar in a spray bottle, then add a few drops of essential oils for a pleasant scent. Use as you would any commercial window cleaner.

How Often Should You Clean Your Windows and Mirrors?

It’s generally recommended to clean windows and mirrors at least once a month, or more often if they are in high-traffic areas or are particularly dirty. 

However, the actual frequency of cleaning will depend on your specific needs and preferences. If you live in a dusty or polluted area, for example, you may need to clean your windows and mirrors more often to remove dirt and grime. 

On the other hand, if your windows and mirrors are not used frequently or are not exposed to a lot of dirt and grime, you may be able to clean them less frequently. 

Ultimately, it’s a good idea to visually inspect your windows and mirrors regularly and clean them as needed to keep them looking clean and streak-free.


Ditch the harsh chemicals and give these natural cleaning tips a try for sparkling clean windows and mirrors! 

Your home will be sparkling clean and you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re using natural products.
