Miracle In A Bottle
Many of my friends have heard me raving about the greatest cleaning product in the world. I have never been so excited to clean in my entire life. The way my windows look in these photos you will probably think that I never clean. I do, but I have a messy family. Yes, I found this recipe on Pinterest and I am happy to say I will never buy Windex again. This spray cleans greasy finger prints and does not leave streaks.
The recipe has three ingredients which you may already have in your home. Water, white vinegar, and Dawn dish washing liquid. Take an empty spray bottle and fill it to the top with water. Add a drop of Dawn and a splash of vinegar. Screw on the top and shake. Spray on the area you want to clean and wipe dry with paper towels or a cloth.
The glass had a greasy sunscreen cheek print from my daughters.
The window above is Labrador height, so it is always full of dog spit. I seriously clean the windows twice a day because of the dog.
The Pinterest pin says this spray can also be used to clean counter tops, which I have tried and am pleased with the results. Yesterday I also sprayed it on my ceramic tile floor to spot clean and it worked great too. The pin also claims the spray leaves a slight residue on counter tops that is not harmful and repels ants.
