A vast majority of the cleaning products we use in our homes contain chemical compounds that are highly harmful to the environment. In addition, these substances can cause irritations to our skin, so the following non-toxic homemade preparations to clean glass will be very helpful.
Homemade preparation to clean glass in a natural way
Remember that to clean glass and not scratch your glass, it is best to use soft cloths or rags, choosing those that do not give off lint. To achieve that the result of this work is perfect, the ideal is to clean the glass of the home on cloudy days , because if the day is very sunny the product you use will dry too soon causing stains to appear , and with the rain the windows will get wet .
1- Natural potato or onion cleaner
Potatoes and onions are not usually lacking in kitchens, so you no longer have an excuse to try this homemade glass cleaning preparation with which you will be able to remove the most consistent dirt . Cut a potato or onion in half and rub gently in circular motions on the glass. Then rinse with a splash of vinegar diluted in half a liter of warm water.
Finally, you only need to rub the glass with a ball of newspaper. In this way we also manage to take advantage of those pieces of potato or onion that are no longer suitable for consumption. Every time the potato and onion are dirty, simply cut a slice and continue with our cleaning.
2- Clean glass stained with citrus
We will put some lemon or orange peels in a container with vinegar for two weeks. After that time we strain the mixture and store the solution in a bottle.

We mix all the ingredients well before adding them to a spray bottle. We apply on the glass, and remove with a ball of newspaper.
4- Starch-based cleaner
We make the mixture by adding a teaspoon of starch in half a liter of hot water and spread with the help of a sponge or cloth on the surface to be cleaned. Once the mixture is dry, we impregnate a ball of newspaper with vinegar and rub the glass in circular movements. In this way we remove the starch.
