A bunch of crumpled up newspaper.When washing your windows mix equal parts vinegar and water to use as a cleaner and then use newspaper to dry. Cuts dirt on 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.

I just read several archived posts on cleaning windows with vinegar and newspaper. I would use ammonia. I don't find the scent any more disagreeable than vinegar. And ammonia is a better grease cutter.

More to the point, I would, but I don't. Well, I do, but not with newspaper. The tip for cleaning windows with newspaper has been around for many years, but I have never tried it. I use a solution in a spray bottle and an excellent little squeegee I got from the Dollar Tree for a dollar. Works great.

Now my question. Today's newspapers are printed with a soy based ink. The ink easily comes off the paper and onto other surfaces. How does it produce a streak free window?

I don't read newspapers, so I'll stay with my squeegee. Just curious.

The windows are streak free. The ink has come off on my rubber gloves. I now use microfiber cloths. Cleaner, and no paper towels for the landfill.
