During the summer, I try to get caught up with things around the house that may have fallen by the wayside throughout the school year. One of the things that I don’t give a whole lot of thought to is cleaning the windows. So, I put this at the top of my list for this summer.
I got started on this task today. I did not get very far, but it’s a start! Before I could begin, I made my own glass cleaner.
First, I grabbed a 4 ounce amber glass spray bottle, which I ordered here. I made sure the bottle was clean by rinsing it with soapy water.
I then poured white vinegar into the bottle, filling it about halfway.
Last, I filled the bottle the rest of the way with distilled water. I shook it up good to mix in the oils. Every time I use this spray, I shake it up because the oils separate from the water.
I then took my window cleaning spray and paper towels upstairs to the bathroom window. This is the one window that has been bothering me the longest because every time I walk into the bathroom, all the dust and water spots are staring me right in the eye.
I am very thankful that the previous owners of our house installed newer windows that tilt inward and are simple to clean! I first cleaned the outside of the windows using my vinegar and lemon spray and paper towels.
I really like the way this lemon oil spray cleans my windows. I will not label it as “streak free,” however, but for some people, it may be. I, on the other hand, can get streaks on my windows cleaning with streak free Windex! Maybe it’s just a talent of mine.
I know it is difficult to see from this picture, but trust me, my windows look amazing after using this homemade cleaner!
I encourage you to try these sprays and let me know how you like them! If you have any window cleaning tips of your own, I would love to hear about them as well!
