Warm Weather Window Cleaner for 1 Room

If you’re only cleaning the windows of one room or a small apartment, here are the measurements for creating a small batch of window cleaner.

  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups hot water

Combine all of the ingredients in a spray bottle, seal and shake well until fully incorporated. Spray generously on the window that needs cleaning and wipe it dry with a crumpled (black and white) newspaper for a gorgeous no-streak finish, ora reusable microfiber cleaning cloth.

This window cleaner is meant to be mixed and used all at once, rather than stored. The cornstarch in it will create an unwanted scent if stored.

This cleaner also works wonders on stainless steel, giving it a polished shine!

Shake well and generously spray dirty window and wipe glass surface with a damp microfiber cloth. Then wipe dry with an old bath towel or second microfiber cloth.
