If you don’t care for the often scented and expensive auto glass cleaner there’s no reason that you can’t make your own cleaner!
It’s as simple as mixing 1/2 cup each of ammonia, water and rubbing alcohol. That’s it! Mix and put in a spray bottle, and you’re ready to go. Spritz your window and wipe it down with a lint free cloth. The solution is also good for car windshields, mirrors, counter tops and other surfaces.
However, you should be aware that ammonia can damage paint and tint surfaces. It is not safe for eyeglasses that have a tint coating. For those, plain soap and water is your best bet, or else a soap/water/vinegar solution.
Different Auto Glass Cleaner Solutions
In the old days, people made auto glass cleaner with water and vinegar, then polished them with old newspapers. You can still do this today, but vinegar will not cut oil or grease that may have gotten on the window. So if you want to get nostalgic and try this method, mix 1/4 cup of white vinegar with two cups of water, and add 1/2 teaspoon of liquid dish soap.
