Best Window Cleaner Ever

I stumbled up this recipe from a friend’s post on Facebook.  After reading the short description, I knew I had to give this recipe a try.  My dad has always been very strict when it came to having clean windows.  In his mind, a window should sparkle and gleam.  He was the first person to show me the trick of cleaning windows with old newspaper; a trick of the trade I still use today.  So dad, I dedicate this recipe to you.

If you are looking to have the clearest and the cleanest windows in your neighborhood, this is the do it yourself recipe for you.  Your windows will shine to perfection.

Ingredients and Supplies:
Distilled Water
Vinegar
Arrowroot Powder
Newspaper
Bottle with sprayer
Mixing Bowl
Fork
Funnel

The addition of vinegar to this recipe will remove almost anything off your windows.  The arrowroot powder will give your glass a shine that is unmatched by store bought cleaners.

One of the best ways to clean windows is using old newspaper.  Not only for recycling reasons, but also because newspaper will not leave any paper lint behind like paper towels do.  Plus, newspaper is absorbent so why waste when you do not have to.  As a secondary measure, unused coffee filters will work as well for cleaning windows, without leaving lint behind.

Instructions:

1.  Weigh out 2 cups of distilled water.  If you do not have any distilled water, you can boil tap water on the stove top for 20 minutes to destroy any bacteria.  Although you may use tap water, chances are using tap water for this recipe will leave additional residue on your windows; resulting in streaks.

2.  Once you have the correct amount of water in your mixing bowl, add 1tablespoon Arrowroot Powder.  Stir with a fork until completely incorporated, your mixture will be cloudy.

3.  Next, add the ¼ cup vinegar, stir again.

4.  Then, grab your funnel and pour your glass cleaner into your bottle with sprayer.

5.  Finally, shake your heart out on the spray bottle.  You really want to agitate the liquid so that all the ingredients are equally dispersed.

That is it, it is just that simple.  You will need to shake the solution each time that you go to use it.  You just want to shake long enough to re disperse the arrowroot among the liquid mixture.  If the arrowroot is not shaken, it may clog your sprayer.  If this does occur, simply run hot water over the opening of the nozzle, and this should unclog the buildup.

Using this glass cleaner will give you streak free windows every time!  In fact, we even put this recipe to the test with professionals.  In order to get unbiased reviews we asked 3 different professional cleaners to swipe out their name brand window cleaner with this one.  The results are in, and all three unanimously chose this window cleaner over the brand name.  Some of their reasons included:

“Steak Free the first time, no need to keep wiping.”
“Love how it got everything up and off with just a few squirts.”
“The mirrors have never sparkled like this before.”
“I have got to make this for myself at home, I am going to need this recipe.”
“Wow, I don’t even like cleaning windows, but with this stuff, it’s a breeze!”
“For cost effectiveness and crystal clear windows; this is the route I am taking from here on out.”

Please Note:  This recipe does not include a preservative.  It is NOT intended to be made for resale reasons, we are just sharing a wonderful window cleaner that works every time.
