    I’m trying to clean 4 large windows and 5 small windows. How much do I need to mix but I don’t have any ammonia

    make it even better into a wipe. I cut a roll of paper towels(use a good quilted strong towel) in 1/2 with a electic knife. put the mix into a zipper bag and put in the 1/2 roll and let it soak it up. Pull the paper tube out of the middle and then you can pull the wipe from the center of the roll.

    Love this! My bathroom mirror had a film that I couldn't get rid of even after using 3 different types of window cleaners. I whipped up this cleaner in a few minutes and it worked beautifully!

    Thanks for posting this great recipe, I will never buy commercial window cleaner again. This stuff is great.


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
