Better Homemade Window Cleaner

I recently found a different recipe for window cleaner.  I never made one of the old recipes because it used ammonia and I just can not tolerate that stuff.  Plain vinegar water didn't work all that well.  I also don't take a newspaper, so I don't have a stash of them to use for wiping off windows. So yesterday I mixed up this new recipe and wow!  It works really good, just as good as Windex or whatever you buy.

Simple stuff as usual:

2 cups of water
1/4 cup of white vinegar
1/2 tsp. liquid dish soap (I like Dawn)

Mix it all together in a spray bottle.  Give it a couple shakes before you spray it on your windows.  Don't forget to label the spray bottle.

This gave me the squeaky sound you get when your windows are getting clean.  No streaks.  And frankly, I like using old t-shirts or rags to wash windows. 

I love this stuff.  It inspired me to wash a few more windows today.  And it appeals to the eco-friendly, tightwaddery side of me, too.
