Slow week on the blog front!
Years ago I just happen to be at my mom's house when some guy came over to clean her windows. I got to talking to him, and asked him what he was using to clean with. He said he was using a mixture of water and liquid Dawn soap (the blue kind). He said the key was not to use Windex, or any commercial window cleaner, because it leaves a build-up on the glass. He was getting them streak free with what seemed like little effort. I used it for years, until I came across this mixture:
2 cups water
1/4 cup vinegar
1.5 t corn starch
Use a little funnel to add the corn starch to the spray bottle, then add liquids. Shake well before each use.
It works great! I clean all of our glass and mirrors with it. I love how cheap it is and it does not take a lot of elbow grease. I tried using it with paper towels (total waste of money) but it streaked just a little bit. I then used a terry cloth cleaning towel and it worked fine, but even better if you use microfiber towels. I found a package of 35 at Costco on coupon for $11.00. They wash up great and that one package should last me for years.
