Streak Free Window Cleaning – Anytime of Year
The price of Windex where I live is about 4 dollars per spray bottle, which I find ridiculous. In my search to find something just as effective that would also allow me to wipe the outside of my windows while we are still getting below freezing I literally stumbled onto the best solution!
Go to your local big box store and buy the cheapest windshield washer that you can find, if it’s not on sale wait a week because it will be soon, it always is at one store or another.
Once you have your windshield washer you KNOW it is streak free because it is a safety hazard to have a streaked up windshield on your car.
Fill a spray bottle (old Windex bottle or a dollar store find) half way with the windshield washer, fill the other half with water, give it a gentle shake and grab your favorite rag and have fun! If you watched your prices you likely just bought about 6 spray bottles of glass cleaner for the same price as one bottle of Windex!
Room spray happens to be one of my biggest triggers when it comes to allergies, especially thick scents and my dog wasn’t able to be around when one was used and having dogs I often need to freshen up their area with a quick mist as well between washes.
My recipe for room spray & doggie breath spray
Using a food grade spray bottle (dollar store, bulk store) put a quarter inch of your favorite mouth wash in the bottom and then fill with water, spray and enjoy the fresh scent. Always spray your own mouth first to be sure it isn’t “hot” feeling before using on your pooch. My dogs all use Listerine with about an 1/8 of an inch in the bottom of a 4oz spray bottle. It leaves a light fragrance when sprayed into the room and doggie kisses don’t seem so bad! I keep this in the bathroom but use it around the house and when I am done brushing and rinsing the dogs all wait for their spray, because dogs are weird like that!
Tomorrow stovetop potpourri for the holidays or those chilly nights!
