    Interesting to hear of the homemade glass cleaning methods others are using. I've tried some other methods too but always come back to the simplicity of club soda.

    Here's the best window cleaner I've ever used: Mix about 1/4 C cornstarch with about a quart of warm water in a big bowl. The cornstarch will settle to the bottom so you have to stir it up every time you dip your cleaning rag or sponge in. Wash windows

    I use vinegar. I have a spray bottle I fill half way then I put the rest water to clean windows. I spray the window and I use newspaper to wipe it. It never streaks.

    If you're living in a hot dry climate, you could try a micro-fibre cloth and VERY hot water. Simply wring out the cloth and wipe your glass. Gets the glass clean and never leaves streaks. I've used this method for quite awhile now and am very satisfied.

    I use clear alcohol on my windows and mirrors. White paper towels or white cloth.
