Create your own glass cleaner DIY at home, saving up to 90% of what retail cleaners cost you. (In some cases, the best stuff in life is actually free or quite cheap.) Plus you know that you’re getting exactly what you pay for-a truly all-natural product, not some cheaply-manufactured, highly-glossily-packed imitation. This guide will show you how to make your own cleaner, even if you’ve never done anything like it before.
Glass cleaner DIY is a great project for the beginner, who might find themselves intimidated at first. It’s easy enough to create, but there are some basic things to keep in mind. You’ll need glass cleaner (yes, you can make it yourself), dish soap, a wire and some metal scissor.
Start by disassembling a small appliance. An old soup can or food jar would be ideal, as long as it fits snugly into the bottom. Using the metal scissor, cut along the bottom edge of the appliance. Be careful not to cut too far into the appliance or you’ll have a large, sharp edge on the inside.
Use the wire to grip the inside of the appliance, then grasp the wire with your other hand. Hold the wire over the glass and twist. This should give you access to all sides of the glass cleaner. Take the metal scissor and pry away any excess wire.
Now it’s time to clean the glass. Use water and wash the glass with the dish soap. Rinse until water runs clear. You’ll want to wipe off any soap residue before you let the glass dry. If it gets really dirty, you can use vinegar and clean the glass. You’re now ready for the fun!
To clean the glass with vinegar, simply pour some vinegar onto the glass and rinse. The vinegar will loosen any hard-to-remove stains or dirt. When finished, you’ll have a glass that is cleaner, brighter, and just a little bit easier to handle. Yippee!
For the last step, you’ll need a funnel. Fit the handle of the funnel into the hole of the glass. Next, fill the glass to the brim with some water, but not too much! Then, you’ll stick the straw through the hole. And stick the other end into the glass!
You’ll immediately notice the difference in quality and value between a homemade glass cleaner and one bought at the store. So save money, time, and the environment by building your own cleaner! Now, all you have to do is stick it on the counter top and start using it!
Some people may think that glass cleaner DIY projects are difficult, but they’re actually very easy! Even someone with no prior experience can build a quality cleaner that will last for years. The only tools you need are a screwdriver, a pair of gloves (and maybe a napkin), and possibly a hand saw if you want to make cutouts or shapes.
The first thing to do after you get the materials is to cut your glass according to the dimensions of the bottle you’re going to use. Don’t cut it too big! You don’t want your glass cleaner stained or warped. Next, you need to gather up your materials. Your glass cleaner DIY project will include:
Next, you’ll need to measure the dimensions of your glass. Write these down (after you have gathered your materials) so you can have them handy when you go shopping. Also, write down how thick you want your glass pane.
Now that you have your glass cleaner, it’s time to clean it. It’s important to make sure you use the right one for the glass cleaner DIY project you’re working on. You want to make sure the bottle is large enough for your needs and not too small. If you use the wrong bottle, you might end up wasting a lot of the cleaner while having it uselessly clean your glass.
Last, you need to put your glass cleaner DIY project together! Start by putting the needed amount of cleaner in the bottle and then pour it onto your glass pane. Using a rubber glove, wipe the glass cleaner over the surface of the glass, making sure to get any streaks or dots removed. Now you can leave it to dry for a few minutes. Once it’s completely dry, you can wipe it off with another clean and rubber glove.
