If you’re trying to reduce the chemical cleaners you use in your home, replacing your glass cleaner is a great place to start. While we have a great recipe for making your own, we also know that sometimes it’s just as easy to go the store-bought route.
While the definition of “natural” can vary depending on what you’re looking for, these five glass cleaners have transparent ingredient lists and great ratings on GoodGuide. Plus, since proper mirror maintenance is important to improve the longevity of your mirror and prevent desilvering, you don’t want to risk using harmful products. Also important? They work well to clean your mirror and get a streak-free shine.
