Glass Cleaner You can make your own glass cleaner that will do a great job of cleaning acid etched glass. It will even remove finger prints if you are willing to spend some time scrubbing. To make your own glass cleaner, you only need water, isopropyl alcohol, and ammonia—all common household cleaning agents. Mix all three ingredients in equal amounts and you will be ready to keep even the most difficult glass clean.
Alternatively, you can use commercially available window cleaner.
Applying Put your glass cleaner of choice into a spray bottle and apply it to your acid etched glass. Then, wipe it away using a soft cloth. Lint can be as big of a problem as the original dirt, so be sure to use a cloth that will not leave any behind. You may have to scrub a little bit to get the worst dirt, dust, and grease out of your acid etched glass.
It doesn't have to be that way. Cleaning glass, whether it's a window or a mirror or a coffee table, is more about the tools than the elbow grease. With the right stuff in your bucket, you can get your glass streak-free.
Here, five tips that can get you to that sweet spot, the first of which is as basic as it gets: If you're diluting your cleaner, dilute it with something clean.
How to Clean Glass and Mirrors
An E-Cloth and Water You can't beat an E-cloth for speed and results - use it with a spray bottle filled with water and see smudges and grime shift quickly from mirrors, interior glass and glass furniture. For very dirty surfaces, you might need to use some water diluted with washing up liquid and applied with a sponge, then wiped and buffed dry with the E-Cloth. The cloth itself contains lots of tiny fibres that pick up dirt. It's also good at adding shine to stainless steel taps, hobs and sinks.
Vinegar, Water, and Newspaper It's an odd combination (and, it has to be said, smelly and a bit messy), but if it is all you have to hand, it will give your windows a nice shine. Dilute your vinegar with water (roughly 1:4) and use a lint-free cloth or chamois leather to clean off grime. For a really good shine, buff the windows with crumpled newspaper - or use the chamois or lint-free cloth. The exterior of windows will almost certainly need more than diluted vinegar to come up clean. Diluted washing up liquid, ideally used with a sponge and squeegee (like a windscreen wiper with a handle) will do the trick. You can then buff them to a shine with newspaper (or your lint-free cloth).
Steam Cleaners Steam cleaners are not strictly eco-friendly in as much as the majority use electricity to run, but they do an amazing job on just about every surface in the home, without the need for chemicals. So, how do they work? Their powerful jets of steam dissolve grease and dirt quickly and effortlessly (and also sterilize surfaces), and while they do a great job on cleaning glass, they also tackle tiles, taps, stove tops, ovens, carpets, upholstery and even mattresses. They usually come with brushes and nozzles to get into awkward spaces, and are particularly good at getting at the black smut that collects between the window and the frame.
