my windows desperately needed to be cleaned – inside and outside! i first saw this idea for a quick outdoor window cleaning idea. basically, you spray your window with water, wipe it down with a homemade solution, then spray with water again and you get a streak free clean – no drying required! i had to try it and it really did work! i honestly couldn’t believe it was streak free! it uses quite a few ingredients. i had to buy ammonia. the other ingredient you may not have is “jet dry” but i use that for my dishwasher.
tip: jill suggests using a long handled brush but i doubt many people actually have that. i created my own with a sponge and swiffer duster handle. after cleaning the windows i saw that they are dirty in the corners. next time i’ll put on a glove and just use the sponge. then i’ll be able to get into the corners and be able to scrub harder.
after cleaning the outsides of the windows, i could clearly see that my windows were just as dirty inside so i used this solution from maya. the ingredients? water, vinegar and cornstarch in a spray bottle. she says to wipe the windows down with newspaper after – i have no idea why. i did this but didn’t see a difference. can anyone enlighten me as to why i should do this step?
here’s the view from my windows now – looks so much better! The before picture didn’t look much different but i can definitely see a difference!
