Don’t dismiss yesterday’s news just yet. Turns out, old newspaper is a great household cleaner, specifically when it comes to windows and glass. Instead of buying pre-soaked, chemically potent glass cleaners, or ripping of a string of paper towels to wipe away grease and grime, try a new approach. Spray your surface with ammonia or vinegar and then, starting at the top and working your way down to avoid drips or streaks, wipe dry with crumpled newspaper. The newspaper leaves your windows clean and applies a film that is resistant to dirt!
