The Best Window Cleaner

A little dab of this and that from your kitchen cupboard will provide you with the best window cleaner!

Around Earth Day 1990, many newspapers offered recipes for non-toxic cleaning with the basics we all have in our kitchen cupboards, and the recipe was just plain vinegar and water with the option of drying the windows with old newspapers.

People by the thousands tried this but ended up swearing off cleaning with homemade recipes because the formula left streaks on their windows. Unfortunately, the commercial products they had used for so many years had left a wax buildup and vinegar alone wouldn’t do the job of removing the residue.

The good news though: Adding a dab of dish soap to the vinegar and water will remove the buildup.

THE BEST WINDOW CLEANER
Make a great all-purpose window cleaner by combining 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon liquid soap or detergent, and 2 cups of water in a spray bottle. Shake to blend and spray on your windows!

Here are 9 other great uses for vinegar in the home!

Maybe I did something wrong because this works like crap. My elderly neighbor swears by vinegar so I thought I'd give it a try.I think I'll go back to using chemicals.

That's how I clean windows and I want to assure all the other readers that this actually works! I can't understand why people use all these chemical products when there are cheaper green alternatives. our website
