Having crystal clear windows and even mirrors in and around your home makes a big difference to your living conditions. The problem with maintaining clean windows is usually due to an ingredient found in commercial cleaners with harsh chemicals which leave a waxy residue that attracts dirt. Not only do these cleaners prevent long term window shine, but they can also be harmful to the environment and your health.
Here are four natural window cleaners that will leave your windows cleaner for longer.
Vinegar and Water:
Vinegar has become a favourite organic household cleaning product. Not only does it sanitize and shine, but it is also 100% natural. To clean your windows, mix equal parts white vinegar and water in a spray bottle, spray directly onto the glass and wipe dry.
Lemon Juice is an ideal window cleaning candidate for if you’re moving away from commercial cleaners to a more natural cleaning option. The acidity in the lemon juice will help to cut through the waxy residue while gently polishing the glass. To clean your windows with lemon, mix 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in with 1 litre of water in a spray bottle and wipe dry.
Simple cornflour like Maizena is ideal for buffering out hard water marks left on glass near a consistent source of dripping water. Mix three tablespoons of Maizena, 1 litre of water and ½ cup of white vinegar in a bucket, then polish, rinse and wipe dry.
Newspaper is the ultimate trick to getting a flawless shine for your windows and mirrors. Whichever of the above options you decide to use, try drying the windows with a crumpled ball of newspaper for a streak-free polish and shine.
