Make your own Glass Cleaner

I hate cleaning windows. I don’t really do it that often. I mostly clean the mirrors in the bathroom. I actually go through quite a bit of glass cleaner, so I found a recipe for a cheaper version. This is all you need:

1 cup rubbing alcohol

1 cup water

1 tablespoon vinegar

Mix and put into a spray bottle. You might want to start labelling all of these bottles… You can also use this to shine chrome and stainless steel. Honestly, I don’t really find it a big deal if my kitchen sink isn’t spotless, but I digress.

Since I’ve made so many cleaners, the only thing dirty in the house should be a dirty Martini. Here’s a recipe:

2 ounces gin

1 tablespoon dry vermouth

2 tablespoons olive juice


2-4 olives

First, get the glass really cold. I like to throw it in the freezer for about 15 minutes or so. Next, add all ingredients except for the olives into a shaker. Shake until freezing cold, pour into the chilled Martini glass and plop in the olives. Enjoy!

Since your glass will be shiny and clean, you may want to draw the blinds so the neighbours don’t see you drinking Martinis at 10:30am while watching the Price is Right. Especially if you’ve had a few and you get excited when they spin the wheel. So excited that you start miming spinning the wheel yourself. And you spin the fake wheel so hard that you fall down. Yeah, no one else needs to see that. If you want to watch people fall down as they spin the wheel, search “wheelies” and “Price is Right” on Youtube.
