Streak Free Windows!

by GettingFreedom on January 14, 2011

When we were designing our addition for Project Major Home Addition, we knew one thing for certain–we wanted lots of natural light.  Which in turn translates to lots of windows, and glass.  Considering that our old windows were almost impossible to clean {old single panes that didn’t allow for the outsides to be cleaned thouroughly}–I knew I was in for a fun treat learning to keep up with all the new glass!

Thankfully, I’ve found a couple of tricks that have allowed me to have streak free glass, without breaking the bank, or my elbow.

First up I use this Homemade Window Cleaning Solution:

½ cup Ammonia

1 gallon water

If you’re feeling fancy, add a couple drops of essential oil of your choice.  This will also help in taking away the harsh ammonia smell (although, the ammonia smell dissipates once dry).

Only mixing a spray bottle at a time??  Add about 1 ½ Tbsp. Ammonia to the bottom of an empty spray bottle, and fill with water.

When you need to clean your window, spray away as normal, but instead of using a paper towel to wipe–Grab the Sunday Paper. Wad up one sheet, and wipe away as usual.  You’ll have sparkly, streak free windows, without the waste!
