Window Cleaning Magic

Yes I get a little excited when I find a cleaning solution that works and is easy! I'm not particularly OCD about cleaning but I am OCD about the way things are cleaned- in a nut shell I hate cleaning something and its doesn't look that different! Windows would be the top of that list! I have tried just about everything over the years to get a sparkling, streak-free window. It shouldn't be that hard should it? And with an army of sticky little fingers in our house, windows are going to get messy.

My interest was caught by a pintrest share this week and I wondered if it possibly could be true- a streak free scrub on, hose off mis? Surely not! (please let it be true, plleeeease!)


So today I thought I would give it a go (of course tweaking it with some changes... it was too tempting) and BOOM! it worked!!!


Window Cleaning Magic

  • 1 bucket of warm water (cause I hate getting cold hands!)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Dr Bronners Magic Liquid soap
  • 1-2 tablespoon of dishwasher rinse aid (I used Finish but I doubt that brand is important)
  • 1/2 cup of white vinegar

Mix and you are ready to start.

Hose off the exterior window. Scrub the mix on- I used a microfibre car sponge/shammy. Hose the window off.

And thats it!! The windows dry streak free and clean. It really is magic!


so... my next thought process had to be: but what about the inside?

Inside windows:

I used the exact same mix and filled a trigger spray bottle with it.... spray on, give a good scrub, wipe off with a soft, clean, absorbent cloth.

I actually went and borrowed my father-in-laws Katcher electric window squeegee. It made it super easy and completely streak free and saved me the effort of manually wiping the windows down (but yes, I tried it the manual way and it worked just fine).


So there you go! Clean window excitement, all ready of their new batch of sticky finger prints with the bonus of another successful make-you-own cleaning product hack!
