Double whammy today. Have you ever found yourself with almost no money, more piles of newspaper than you know what to do with, and dirty windows/mirrors? Time to get out your handy-dandy white vinegar! It truly is a versatile wonder.
Things you will need:
1/2 c distilled vinegar
1 1/2 c water
1 plastic spray bottle
1 clean rag
Plenty of newsprint
Pour vinegar and water into the plastic spray bottle. Make sure it is closed; shake well. Spray glass surface then wipe with the rag, followed by polishing with the crumpled newsprint.
1 liter Great Value distilled vinegar...$1.67
Water... usually FREE
Spray bottle at the Dollar General... $1.00
Rag... FREE if you have a mismatched sock lying around or something similar
Newsprint...FREE (most urban/suburban areas have free college newspapers etc.; or you can use the free classifieds circulars in the mail)
Total cost... $2.67 plus tax (approximation based on brand, locality, and time)
Newsprint removes water spots and can be used on its own in a pinch.
Mr. Yeater also suggests a couple drops of dish detergent instead of vinegar because he likes the smell better.
