Window Washing Cleaner

Springtime is a full on assault on our windows. After the pollen, tree debris and rain have finished, I spend one weekend day cleaning all our storm windows and the outsides of the windows. This recipe works well for a clean and streak-free shine. (You will have the best luck avoiding streaks if you clean on a cloudy day.)

Make It: Mix 2 gallons of warm water, 1/2 cup vinegar, and 2 tsp. liquid dish detergent in a big bucket. Dip a sponge or squegee into the mixture and scrub the windows. Use the squegee to remove all liquid from the windows. Finish by wiping clean with a dry rag.
