rubbing alcohol


Mix and put in a spay bottle. 

You can also use news paper to clean your windows instead of paper towels.

I made a break through the other day when I was washing canning jars and looking out my very much needing washing windows. My canning jars sparkle when I wash them with Dawn dish washing liquid. My canning jars are GLASS and my windows are GLASS. If Dawn does such a nice job on my canning jars how will it work on windows? Grab a bowl fill it with water add a squirt of Dawn and with rag in hand, wash window, dry with clean dry rag, just the way I wash dishes and jars. In half an hour I had 8 casement windows and the sliding glass door clean and sparkling. No more trouble or effort than washing dishes. No special mixes. no wasted paper towels.

I use Martha Stewart's window cleaner 'recipe'–one gallon of hot water, 1 cup plain (non-sudsing) ammonia, 2 cups of vinegar and a heaping tablespoon of corn starch.  I bought a house where the oil furnace had malfunctioned and blown greasy black smoke everywhere.  This solution was the only thing that got that crud off the windows.  I think the cornstarch must be a little bit abrasive.

Put this on with a rag or spray bottle (shake often), squeegee it off, and polish with paper towels or newsprint. 

I just haven't been the same since that house fell on my sister.
