  • Clean & Clear: Tips for Cleaning Your Windows

    [caption id="attachment_2352" align="alignleft" width="402" caption="Nothing Like Clean Windows"]Cleaning[/caption]

    Wish you could have cleaner windows? Wish you could get rid of that dirt and debris that's left on your windows? Here are some tips and tricks when it comes to cleaning your windows.

    First time with vinegar
    If you are going to clean your windows with vinegar for the first time, you need to add an extra ingredient to help combat the residue left over from commercial products. Here is Annie’s formula:
    2 cups of water
    1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon of liquid dish soap or detergent
    Combine in a labeled spray bottle, spray and wipe.

    Normal dirt
    Once you have removed any waxy residue with the liquid soap formula, you can begin using a diluted white vinegar solution for normal dirt.
    1 cup white distilled vinegar
    1 cup water
    Combine in a labeled spray bottle, spray and wipe.

    Very dirty
    If you have extra dirty windows, or windows with dried paint or hard-water mineral spots, try warming up full-strength white distilled vinegar and applying it directly to the windows.
