I have a particularly large need for a good homemade pet cleaning spray as we have two sickly long haired cats.

As a guy I haven’t ever been overly eager for a “facial” before, not anti mind you, I never went out of my way to get one though.  For some reason, lately my silly nose pores have seemed a little more uncooperative than usual, so I decided to give this homemade pore cleansing clay mask a shot.

I don’t know about you, but every time I bust out the glass cleaner and start spraying it around I cringe away from it’s falsely blue mist and I cover my mouth and nose with my shirt.  I finally got tired of acting so ridiculous every time I have some glass to clean, so I decided to make my own homemade diy glass cleaner that is chemical free, doesn’t make me cringe away from it in fear, and most of all works.

I’m neither for nor against using alcohol in glass cleaner at this point. Personally I think it will probably help to reduce streaking because it evaporates more quickly than water. For the sake of including all options here is a simple to make glass cleaner.

This glass cleaner is great for everything you’d use a store-bought glass cleaner for: windows in your home, mirrors, or even some metal like faucets.  The good news is that it does all that while being completely animal and kid friendly.  Now, here’s how to make glass cleaner!
