1/2 cup water

1/2 cup white distilled vinegar (5% acidity)

1/4 tsp blue Dawn dish soap

Basic spray bottle

Sponge or scrub brush

Rubber hose with spray nozzle

(Make sure you head to our blog post to read the purpose behind each ingredient!)

Directions for mixing the DIY outdoor window cleaner:

In your spray bottle, combine the water, vinegar, and dish soap.

Set the nozzle to stream, if possible, which will make it easier to reach all the window area.

The easiest way to clean outdoor windows with our homemade solution:

Step One: Spray window with cleaning solution; setting it to stream can help reach taller areas.

Step Two: With a sponge or scrub brush (use anything soft and safe for windows), scrub the window area as best you can.

Step Three: With a spray nozzle attached to the rubber hose, spray every part of the window making sure all the cleaner is removed.

Step Four: You can air dry or wipe with a microfiber cloth to dry!

That’s it!

If you want to do a quick clean, you can actually just spray the window and wipe off with a paper towel.

If your windows aren’t too dirty or maybe you can’t get a rubber hose to it, use this method.
