Vostyls I would definitely get a specialized window cleaning solution, or check with your supplier for a green seal certified product if that's the goal.

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, which cause streaking.

If you run out of vinegar, or don't like the smell, you can also substitute straight lemon juice or club soda and rub with newspaper.

KeishaMorris I totally agree with this post! I tried to wash our window with vinegar for the first time (because my trusted cleaning company which is Austral Cleaning suggest it to me) and I was like “Wow! Amazing! It really works!” And now, I am fan of using vinegar in cleaning any glass surfaces in our home.

Vinegar is a miracle from nature. Completely non-toxic and anti-bacterial, vinegar is actually beneficial to any surface it touches. It safely kills germs and is much more economical than chemical cleaning solutions. It’s not even harmful when accidentally inhaled or ingested. (If you’ve got kids, you’ll love that part).

The acidic composition of vinegar acts quickly to break down the kind of film that frequently accumulates on glass surfaces. When you wash a window using a solution that contains vinegar, the results will almost always be free from streaks and sparkling clean.

I found useful tips in the internet about using vinegar in cleaning your window. Here is the link www[dot]wikihow.com/Clean-Windows-With-Vinegar. Hope it can help you somehow.

henrynelson Vinegar's most common and perhaps most effective application is cleaning glass, such as windows.
Prepare the area around the windows for cleaning. The most important precaution here is to wipe down the window frame and sill with a cloth or paper towel to remove any dust.
Fill a small spray bottle with a mixture of vinegar and water. For small windows, applying the vinegar with a spray bottle is an effective method
Spray the window's surface with the vinegar and water mixture. Use the spray bottle to mist the entire window with the mixture.
Rub the window's entire surface with a cloth to work the vinegar in. The best tool for this is a lint-free towel, but paper towels also work well.
Dry the window's entire surface. This is best done with a microfiber cloth, and should be done after most of the moisture has been collected by the lint-free tow.

ChrisJenkins There are many ways to clean windows naturally, and at least half of them include vinegar solutions in various forms. The most common solution is to mix some vinegar with hot water in a spray bottle and use this solution to clean the windows. In this case it's not recommended to use a towel or newspaper. The squeegee does the best job to not leave strikes after the cleaning. For grease stains, you can add some liquid soap to the solution and have in mind that you may have to use some plain water afterwards to finish the cleaning. If you want to mask scratches, you can use some cornstarch and just rub it on the surface. The cornstarch not only cleans the windows efficiently, but also removes scratches quite effectively. And the vinegar can be used not only on the glass, but also the blinds and the window frames too.

Cleaning with vinegar

Thanks for sharing. I agree that some windows may need only water as the warranty is voided if you use any other water to do the window cleaning services for clients. I think the it should be also be considered the type of windows that are cleaned with vinegar. Also some clients may not be impressed with cleaning with diluted vinegar only, they expect to see to some super magical formula.

naturalnut extremely important to know.....many warranties on new windows are voided if anything but water is used to clean them. Products including vinegar erode the protect uv layer that is place on all new windows.

How To Clean Window With Vinegar.

hi every one The most important precaution here is to wipe down the window frame and sill with a cloth or paper towel to remove any dust. This keeps the dust from getting turned up when you're using the vinegar and dirtying your work. If there are small objects around the window, consider moving them to keep them from getting wet with vinegar.

benmoore Yep, windex is not a good choice at all!

archermowll First get bowl and a towel. Pour a little volume of water (about 1 cup) then mix the vinegar and water and apply it to the window using the towel. Hope it may help you..

Cleaning a window with water and vinegar is one of my favorite choices. My clients also appreciate our cleaning with "Green Clean Products".

I also like to second Roberts cleaning steps...

"1.Prepare the area around the windows for cleaning.
2.Fill a small spray bottle with a mixture of vinegar and water.
3.Spray the window's surface with the vinegar and water mixture.
4.Rub the window's entire surface with a cloth to work the vinegar in.
5.Dry the window's entire surface."

fredmore How to Clean Windows With Vinegar
In addition, vinegar is completely natural and perfectly safe if ingested or inhaled; in fact, its versatility is only expanded by its potential in culinary applications. Vinegar's most common and perhaps most effective application is cleaning glass, such as windows. Learning how to clean windows with vinegar is a simple project requiring little time and only a few supplies.
Prepare the area around the windows for cleaning. The most important precaution here is to wipe down the window frame and sill with a cloth or paper towel to remove any dust.
Fill a small spray bottle with a mixture of vinegar and water. For small windows, applying the vinegar with a spray bottle is an effective method. Combine roughly equal parts distilled vinegar and water into the spray bottle
Spray the window's surface with the vinegar and water mixture. Use the spray bottle to mist the entire window with the mixture. If cleaning more than 1 window, only apply the vinegar to the first window.
Rub the window's entire surface with a cloth to work the vinegar in. The best tool for this is a lint-free towel, but paper towels also work well. Concentrate especially on spots that have visible stains or grime. Work quickly to help avoid streaks from appearing.
thanks
