Vinegar is not just for cooking anymore. You may have heard about some of the other uses for vinegar, including as a household cleaner. Windows, for example, can get a good shine after cleaning with vinegar. In fact, there are even different vinegar mixtures you can use to clean your windows, depending on whether you are dealing with light or stubborn dirt.
Some recipes for vinegar window-washing solutions include the following:
- 1 part hot water and 1 part distilled vinegar, according to Martha Stewart;
- 1 part tap water and 1 part distilled vinegar, according to Green Living;
- Undiluted vinegar for highly stubborn dirt; and
- 2 cups water, ¼ cup white vinegar, and ½ teaspoon dish washing detergent or liquid.
Any recipe will do a great job cleaning your windows as long as you use a mild cloth, such as a microfiber towel or a paper towel.
