Washing Windows with Vinegar

Let's go back in time...and make a great window cleaner like Grandma used to make!

Put white vinegar in a spray bottle. Crumple up a sheet of old newspaper.


Spray the window with vinegar and wipe down with the newspaper.

Your windows are now sparkling clean and the environment stays healthy!

Better yet, use a Magic Cloth, and all you need is water! Don't have to buy vinegar and don't get black newsprint on your hands. A Magic Cloth will last 5 years, and you can use it to clean many things.

When washing windows get empty squirty bottle, pour about a quart of normal vinegar into it and then fill the rest of the bottle with cold water. Squirt onto your windows and use a normal dish cloth to wipe. You may notice smearing to begin with but this will fade. It's fantastic and so cheap.

Washing Windows

Use vinegar and water mixed together to wash window and mirror glass. Wipe with newspaper! No fuzzies from paper towels!

Washing Windows with Vinegar

When washing your windows mix equal parts vinegar and water to use as a cleaner and then use newspaper to dry. Cuts dirty glass much easier and doesn`t leave streak marks. Works inside or outside. It's less expensive and using the paper is more ecological too.
