Frugal Tip of the Week: Window Cleaner

Over the past couple years I have been switching out my cleaning products to reduce the chemicals in my house as well as to reduce the cost of purchasing cleaners. I absolutely love my Homemade All Purpose Cleaner and highly recommend you try some! As far as cleaning windows, most people say to use vinegar and water if you want to switch from commercial window cleaners like windex. I could never get a streak free clean that way. Then a few months ago, I stumbled upon a website (no idea where though!) that said to use club soda and a crumpled newspaper to clean windows and mirrors. I had some flat club soda in the pantry and some grocery ads I was done with, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. Not like it was going to hurt to try! What do you know…..clean, shiny, streak free mirrors and windows! WOOHOO! And the best thing about it is the price. I usually buy the store brand of club soda for around $0.69 for a 2 liter. Just put it in a spray bottle and you have cheap, chemical free window cleaner, who doesn’t love that? Just so you know, Windex 2 liter refills (6 pack) is over $35 on amazon! Can you believe that?! I think I like $4.14 for 6 club sodas and free grocery ads better!
