Ever wonder how window washers get those skyscrapers so clean and shiny? My son used to be a window washer, here is how they do it! Take a bucket of warm water, add JOY dish soap (only use Joy), and a drop of ammonia if the weather is cold. Apply then squeegee off. Great for windows, mirrors, and bathtub tiles!

To clean windows & mirrors, I use a bit of dishwashing soap (whatever I happen to be using at the time - I've never used Joy) and vinegar mixed in a pail of hot water. I've been using this for years and have always been happy with the result. I use the same mixture (with just warm water) for cleaning my china and crystal, and it makes them really sparkle.

To really clean windows and mirrors, fix a solution of 2 quarts water with a squirt of Joy dishwashing detergent, and 1/3 cup blue Parsons, non-streaking ammonia. Wash your window with a washrag and then use a squeegee. Clean your edges with a soft dishtowel.

Cleaning Windows Recipe

Thanks so much for reminding me of a similar recipe from Consumer Reports for glass. It saves a fortune in chemical costs! I prefer to use newspaper for drying, and it all works WELL unless you happen to have been tricked into using other chemicals that "etched or clouded" your glass as I did on one window, and totally ruined it, just like bad detergent in the dishwasher ! Isn't it FUN to learn how to make things that work as well as store-bought and CHEAPER? God bless you. (09/14/2006)
