Clean Windows With Coffee Filters

Clean windows with coffee filters by saturating them with window cleaner, all purpose cleaner, or vinegar. They are durable and will not leave lint like a paper towels does. You can put in an airtight container and have ready to use wipes available at all times.

Don't use your paper towels to clean those windows - use 2 small old kitchen towels! 1 to get the dirt off and 1 to shine up the window

When I try to clean windows they just seem to go all smeary. What am I doing wrong?


Someone told me I should jus carry on rubbing but this doesn't work either. Am I using too much spray or what?

Something I've always heard is that you shouldn't clean the windows when the sun is shining directly on them. This tip does seem to help keep the streaking down because the glass doesn't dry as fast.

I liberally apply a water, vinegar, and detergent mix from a spray bottle; and then I rub the window down with an old T-shirt to get the heavy spots and grime off. Sometimes I use a squeegie and then a wadded newspaper rub to finish off--sometimes just the wadded newspaper does the trick. The wadded-up newspaper is a GREAT final polishing tool to get the windows really sparkling and flawless.

I can recommend the microfibre Sabco window cloths. They work best from dry if you only have a small window but obviously you need to rinse them out if you are doing more than one window. My front windows were filthy after building work and I used the cloths with a plain water spray bottle, (as recommended).


I couldn't believe how quick it was, and no streaks or smears. They even took of dried on splashes of water from concrete spreading. If you prefer chemical free, or not having to buy window cleaning products, these cloths are the way to go. They are not expensive - mine were about $3 Australian.
