Cheap Way to Clean Windows

posted by eolsen

windowsDuring the summer with pollen, grass, storms and hot sun, windows seem to be dirty all the time. Here are some Heloise Hints how to make this mundane and sometimes messy task easier and more effective.

1. Make your own money saving cleaner: Mix 1 cup of white or apple cider vinegar with 1 cup of water.

2. First, wipe off as much of the dust and dirt from the windows, inside and outside. You can hose down the outside to remove it.

3. Wash windows when the sun is not shining right on them because it causes the cleaner to dry too fast and can leave a residue or streaks.

4. Then dry windows on the outside from the right-to-left and then on inside up-and-down. You can examine the window to see if there are streaks! I recycle old newspapers and it does a super job! Why waste money!

 

Vinegar is so useful in and around your home. To keep paint brushes soft, soak in vinegar for an hour or two. For more vinegar hints, click here to find them on my Website: www.Heloise.com
