How to clean your windows with a newspaper
 
Why use harsh chemical sprays while you can have it cleaned with what you have in the kitchen. Get those windows and mirrors crystal clear with a simple solution of white vinegar, newspaper and a little elbow grease. Now its time to be more practical and savvy.

Follow these simple steps on how to make your own window cleanser. First, mix 2 tablespoons of white vinegar with a gallon of water, and dispense into a used spray bottle. Squirt on, then scrub with newspaper, not paper towels, it will cause streaking.

lemon juice or club soda (don't dilute either in water) is a good substitute for vinegar, then just rub it with newspaper.

Newspapers..Old style but works great for windows! When I was a kid, I always using newspapers to clean the windows. :)

It's actually also quite effective to use just water and newspaper - dip one piece of newspaper into a bucket of water to clean it off, then use a dry piece of newspaper to dry of the window.

That was a nice post and an informative one as well. I liked it more because it made use of only natural ingredients that would do no harm to the person using it, the product on which it is used in particular and the environment in general.

How to clean your windows with a newspaper
 
What You Need
  1. A dirty window
  2. Newspaper
  3. Window Spray or Vinegar & water
(If streaks persist with just vinegar and water, try this recipe: 2 cups water, 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon liquid soap)
Instructions
1. Collect Your Materials
If using a window spray, this part should be easy. I choose Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Window Spray because it smells so good and is mostly natural. If youíre trying vinegar, dilute with water. A good recipe is 2 cups water, 1/4 cup vinegar, and 1/2 liquid soap (to get rid of the waxy film that might be on the window).
2. Apply the Cleaner
A squirt bottle works best but you could also lightly dip your newspaper into a jar of cleaning solution if needed.
3. Rub to Clean
Begin in a circular pattern to wipe off all the spots. Then, switch to a vertical, and then horizontal stroke until all the liquid has dissipated and youíre left with a shinny, streak free windows!
Note: for vinyl windows, Iíve found that the newsprint leaves a mark on the white frame. Avoid rubbing the window frame with newspaper and stick to the glass.
