Newspaper is relatively lint free and works well with vinegar to clean windows, leaving them streak free. This is a guide about use vinegar and newspaper for cleaning windows.
Put all the ingredients into a clean spray bottle and shake to mix. Use as you would a commercial glass cleaner. Spray on glass and wipe dry with a clean cloth or newspaper.
Use regular rubbing alcohol. Just a couple drops on a cottonball, paper towel or rag will clean any glass squeeky clean with no streaks for less than pennies per use.

Window and Glass Cleaner
1/2 cup no sudsing or low sudsing ammonia
1/2 cup isopropyl alcohol
1/2 cup water
Combine ingredients, store in a trigger spray bottle. Use newspaper to clean windows.
I bought a spray bottle at a janitorial supply shop. They are of good quality and are not expensive.
I use gallon jugs of car window washer cleaner for cleaning my house windows. I just reuse an empty spray bottle or buy a cheap one and refill as needed. It works great on cleaning them. In the spring, I use the bug cleaner one and the rest of the time I use Rainex that sheets the rain off the window. It's the cheapest way to clean the windows and works great.

Spring cleaning has arrived and time to clean all your windows. This year I purchased an empty spray bottle for $1.00 and a gallon jug of windshield washer cleaner for $1.69. I use a squeegee for a streak free shine. Cheapest way and easy way to clean those dreaded windows.

Brilliant idea and I'll bet it really works. Thanks, I'll try it. God bless you. : )
For cleaning mirrors and glass, I use windshield washer fluid and fill my spray bottle. It does the same job as the expensive glass cleaner at a fraction of the price.
I clean my windows and mirrors with cheap windshield wash. It is about $1.00 for a gallon and I use it full strength.
