Most glass cleaners are made of ammonia, a strong irritant and coal tar dyes. Some of them can be even more dangerous containing butyl cellosolve, a neurotoxin, alcohol, naphtha, glycol ethers. Aerosol-form products create little drops that are most likely to be inhaled or irritate the eyes. In fact, if you have a look at the consumer reviews and reports, many of the people tell that they find clear water more efficiently than the window cleaning products on the market. Using a microfiber cloth and clear water actually does wonders, cleaning windows and glasses to perfection, removing all stains and dirty build-ups. Cleaning with water is not only very safe and healthy but also faster because there is no soapy and sticky residue to deal with. Using a microfiber cloth also reduces the amount of dust in a long-term.

You can mix your own safe window cleaner product by using liquid castile soap, water and a bit of vinegar. Vinegar is great for removing stubborn stains and dirt build-ups. Alternatively, you can substitute vinegar with lemon juice and that way add a fresh smell to the place.
