It is important we understood some certain products are not just fit for everyone. Although, if you are like me – anything goes. Meanwhile, it’s a different thing with a pregnant woman or an asthmatic patient. That is why we shall be talking about how to Produce Citrus Non-toxic Window Cleaner.
Sometimes, if I take a look at the books in my Library; I noticed some of them are full of dust. Then I remember, sometimes ago; when we were trying to prove how pure is the air we breathe. If you want to know; just stay close to your window and look through the sunlight ray that comes through the window. You will be shocked at what you’ll see.
So, how do you make a non-toxic window cleaner?
Ingredients Needed For a Non-toxic Window Cleaner
Isopropyl alcohol ———————————- 1/2 cup
White vinegar ————————————- 1 cup
Lemon essential oil ——————————– 3 drops
Glass bottle (because the potency of lemon oil can break down a plastic bottle), we reuse these bottles
Let us quickly discuss these ingredients one after the other:
What is Isopropyl Alcohol?
Isopropyl alcohol IPA (also called isopropanol or methylated spirit) is a colorless, flammable chemical compound with a strong odor. It dissolves a broad range of non-polar compounds. It also evaporates quickly, leaves nearly zero oil traces, compared to ethanol, and is relatively non-toxic, compared to alternative solvents.
What is White Vinegar?
White vinegar, sometimes also called “distilled vinegar,” is a mildly acidic clear liquid used in cooking and cleaning that is usually made by the fermentation of grain alcohol. When grain alcohols are exposed to the air and allowed to oxidize, they produce acetic acid, which manufacturers then down to between a 5 and 8 percent solution with water. White vinegar is one of the simplest vinegar available and, aside from the bitter or sourness usually associated with acetic acid, has no real flavor or taste of its own.
What is an Essential Oil?
An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils, aetherolea, or simply as the oil of the plant from which they were extracted, such as oil of clove. Oil is “essential” in the sense that it contains the “essence of” the plant’s fragrance—the characteristic scent of the plant from which it is derived. The term essential used here does not mean indispensable as with the terms essential amino acid or essential fatty acid which are so called since a given living organism nutritionally requires them. If you don’t see Lemon essential oil; any other essential oil will also work fine.
Step by Step Processes
Note: Whatever, is your measuring scale. Isopropyl Alcohol and White vinegar are in ratio 1: 2. Anywhere you use 1 cup of Isopropyl Alcohol; you will use 2 cups of White Vinegar. If you use a HALF cup of Isopropyl Alcohol; you will use a FULL cup of White Vinegar.
There are no special procedures involved; just combine the whole ingredients and store in spray bottle. Period!!!
