I got this great trick from my dear friend Cori. It's her favorite green cleaning trick -- she actually describes it as "life changing". She uses newspaper and water to clean her mirrors and windows. The newspaper takes off all the smudges, dirt, makeup etc. and doesn't leave any streaks behind. Easy eco cleaning, for the win!!
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Time: 2 Minutes Cost: $1 Difficulty: Easy
I balled up some leftover newspaper pieces and grabbed a spray bottle full of water.
This mirror looks like it's had some teenage girls using it. (Makeup and smudges EVERYWHERE!) Step 2: Spray on Some Water
I used a spray bottle filled with water, but you could also just flick some water on the mirror with a wet hand. Step 3: Wipe with Newspaper
Then, wipe your mirror with the crumpled up newspaper just as you would with a cloth and chemical cleaner.
I found that I didn't have to wipe so much -- and that streaks were nowhere to be found!
And that's it! This trick is teenage-girl proof! No all that's left is to enjoy that beautiful, smudge free reflection.
Materials I used for this project:
- Spray bottle (optional) (Dollar Store)
