This warm weather window cleaner recipe works like a dream to get the windows sparkling clean during the spring and summer months.  Some cleaners don’t work as well on hot windows, but this one works with the heat and creates a beautiful shine.

Warm Weather Window Cleaner for the Whole House

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 quart hot water
  • l/2 cup of white vinegar

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.

If you don’t have any newspaper to repurpose, a microfiber cloth works well too.

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!

Old-Tyme Warm Weather Window Wash Recipe

This is the recipe that my grandma used to use on her windows back in the day. I’ve found this one works better during the fall and early spring when the windows are cooler.

1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
1/2 cup white vinegar
fill with warm water

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.

  1. I’ve been using this for 25years. My mil told me about it, but she places hot water & corn starch in one bowl and used a wash cloth to clean window (glass) then uses a seperate dry one to wipe off the solution after it has left a foggy look on window (glass/mirror). It worked so good my husband walked right into our sliding glass door first time I tried it.

    Love using it on bathroom mirrors as well.
