Clean Your Windows

Out of your commercial, chemical-laden window cleaner? Don’t worry, you can try this DIY solution instead!

We know it is not easy to clean windows or glassware without leaving behind streaks or water marks. However, vodka can not only banish those marks but can also add that extra sparkle to your shiny surfaces.

For this, take 1 cup of Vodka and add 1/4 cup of white vinegar to it. Then, add 2 cups of plain water. Mix the ingredients well and pour the solution into a spray bottle.

Now, all you have to do is to spritz the solution on windows, glass doors, and other shiny surfaces, and wipe off the solution with a dry microfiber cloth. As the solution is mostly comprised of alcohol, it will evaporate quickly, leaving your shiny surfaces streak-free, and will also remove any smudges. 

Refresh Your Smelly Clothing
