Frugal Fridays DIY glass cleaner

On Fridays I will be posting frugal ideas

                                                         Todays post:  DIY glass cleaner.

We live in a home with many windows. Three kids and lots of windows equals alot of glass cleaning.
Making your own cleaning supplies (expecially glass cleaner) is a easy as 123 

1 part vinegar 
1 part water
mix in a spray bottle
I use this for regular maintenance for my windows  it is eco friendly and cost effective
I also love that it is easy on the skin and the kids.They can help clean up their own fingerprints.

I usually dry with crumpled up newspapers.  It leaves a nice shine on the windows.

If you have a tough job, or when the windows haven't been cleaned for a while, use this recipe.

1 1/2  cups vinegar
1 1/2  cups amonia
1 Tablespoon detergent
water to make 1 gallon

This is a bit more caustic and should be kept out of the reach of children and away from other cleaners containing bleach. 

Get out and clean a window or two today!
