Vinegar, lemon, starch, and even tea can help you clean your windows easily

The weather conditions in our latitudes with frequent rains mean that windows, no matter how much you wash them, get dirty pretty quickly. That's why they need to be cleaned every few months. And since this process is not easy, many people put it off until the last minute, admiring the world through a dusty window with stains and streaks for a while.

However, some products allow windows to stay clean longer and, accordingly, you will have to wash them no more than twice a year. And you won't need expensive factory chemicals. OBOZREVATEL tells you about these recipes.


Vinegar dissolves typical window dirt well and allows you to clean glass quickly and easily. It should be diluted in a 1:1 ratio with warm water. Pour the solution into a spray bottle and it is ready to use immediately. To make it smell more pleasant, you can add 10 drops of your favorite essential oil. For example, lavender or rose. In this case, you will need to mix the liquid thoroughly.

Lemon juice

Another product based on natural acid that can easily clean windows and make them shine longer. Take a tablespoon of strained lemon juice per liter of water. Use the mixture with a spray bottle.

Lemon juice and tea

The tannins in tea will help clean the glass and protect it from rapid re-staining. Take three black tea bags and brew them in a liter of warm water, then add a tablespoon of lemon juice. The window spray is ready.

Alcohol and starch

Adding cornstarch to the product will allow you to wash the windows without streaks, and alcohol will clean the glass to a shine. To make the liquid, take a quarter cup of white vinegar, a quarter cup of rubbing alcohol, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, and half a liter of warm water. Mix the ingredients properly so that the starch is completely dissolved. You can flavor this remedy with your favorite essential oil.
