So my mom is a genius. You all probably knew that but I just figured it out today. While I was growing up my mom always used vinegar to clean windows. I hated the smell. HATED! I vowed to always use a glass cleaner - which I have. Well, my house is windows - I should count sometime just how many. Just in the kitchen, dining, and great room there are 28. And these aren't small windows. We are talking 7 ft tall on some of them. I have had it with the streaky cleaning. So i got online and sure enough, they also knew that vinegar was the best for a no streak window. I tried this recipe and it's A.Mazing! It's not quite as strong as what I'm sure my mom used/uses but it works! Here it is:

2 cups water
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon liquid detergent

Just use paper towels - no newspaper..............

You may just have a bird fly into your window!

Thanks MOM!

so my mom does the whole vinegar things sometimes too. but funny you should say that about the birds flying into the window, because a couple weeks ago we had two birds fly into our back door in the SAME day!

it must have been the vinegar, or maybe the heat is getting to their brains. maybe both?

Yikes! You could have a ton of birds flying into your windows. Blog it! Interesting about the vinegar...who knew! It works for windows and mosquito bites!
