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.

Use vinegar and newspaper to clean those windows and mirrors. It does such an excellent, streak-free job! Vinegar also works for mopping floors, helping to eliminate that pesky separate-cleaner-for-each-job buildup in the chemicals cabinet!

Here is a great inexpensive and ozone friendly tip for cleaning windows and mirrors. Alcohol vinegar is found in almost every household and is a very good cleaning agent. Instead of using expensive and ammonia based window cleaners, I take an empty spray bottle (like the one you buy glass cleaner in), put a little less than 1/4 bottle of vinegar, about 5 drops (or one squeeze of dish lotion), and the rest water.


Shake well and use to wash all glass surfaces. An extra tip, use old newspapers to wipe down the windows instead of a cloth, as it leaves no lint and a streak free shine.
