The best and easiest way to clean windows and any glass at all is to use rubbing alcohol. I reuse a sprayer that will screw onto the alcohol bottle and spray. It will clean anything glass including eyeglasses.


It dries fast and is streak free and the only thing easier is using Glass Wax, only available at Ace hardware stores. It's great since you just wipe it on like any car wax and let it dry to a haze and then just wipe it off with a dry cloth, all done!

You can also use glass wax to polish anything metal like toasters, sinks, etc. and if used on car windshields it helps repel water (driving in Oregon makes this a necessity)! Better than Rainbird products. I have even let my grandson "paint" on my windows with glass wax and a q-tip, keeps him happy and just wipes right off.

Very quick and easy. Miracle cloth barely dampened with a little water(or alcohol). Couple swipes and you are done. That cloth just grabs everything. i like the yellow miracle cloth car wipes at Costco. At least a dishtowell size. they wash beautifully. Great for cleaning eyeglasses too.

Clean your windows by putting rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, spray the window and wipe with a lint free cloth. The windows come out so clean that they shine and there is no streaking. And best part if you have sticky tape from hanging up a holiday display in the window, the alcohol takes the sticky residue right off.
