Glass Cleaner

I’ve used this uber-simple glass cleaner for years now with no problems. Then, I used it to clean the nasty, nasty windows at the new house and fell in love with it all over again.


  • Water
  • Vinegar
  • Spray Bottle
  • Bucket (optional)
  • Black & White Newspaper (at least a couple of weeks old)


  1. Whatever the quantity desired, use a one to one ratio: one part water to one part vinegar. For most jobs, mix the water and vinegar directly in the spray bottle and squirt on. For heavy jobs, mix the water and vinegar in a bucket. Heartily apply it to the glass with a cloth or sponge.
  2. With either method, wipe dry with the older, non-colored (or minimally colored) newspaper. The newspaper is abrasive enough to scrub off sticky grime but soft enough to leave a streak-free finish.
  3. Repeat if necessary.


About More Green for Less Green

Hi, I’m Pamm. Welcome to my little slice of the web! As a progressive Evangelical female pastor and crunchy homeschooling mom, I’m never quite what anyone expects of me. But, hey, that’s what makes blogging interesting, right? Join me as I try to wholeheartedly parent my three little boys, slowly fix up the trashed foreclosure we bought in 2009, and live simply.
