Washing Windows

Okay, so this isn’t reallllly something I like doing, but it has to be done. The little man and I were talking about it the other day, because it’s spring and the outsides of the glass are looking pretty, pretty, pretty dingy. What I have learned over the years is that the best window washing fluid isn’t on the market, but it can easily be made from kitchen ingredients.

Years ago, when my darling daughter did window washing as a summer job, she brought home the secret to streak-free, clean windows. In one gallon of water, add 1/2 cup of vinegar and a few drops of Joy dish liquid. That’s it. Simple, low-cost, and sooooo much better than bottled sprays. Even my beloved Method brand’s glass cleaner doesn’t work as well as this. Window washers use a wool or other material soak and a squeegee, but for me, a washcloth to apply the solution and a lint-free towel to dry works best.
