Glass cleaning tips

- Clean glass and crystal objects with 90 degree alcohol or with a few drops of ammonia mixed with water.
- Mix a Tbs. of vinegar for each liter of water. This solution is excellent for cleaning glass and crystal.
- Use a moist rag to remove dust accumulated on the glass. Immediately use newspaper to shine your windows.
- Remove dry paint stains from your glass window using hot oil or rubbing it with a piece of cloth dampened in hot vinegar.
- Your mirrors in the bathroom won’t fog up if you clean them with alcohol.
Cleaning car windows

- Use a moist rag impregnated in baking powder to keep your car windows clean.
- To clean glass bottles fill them with water half way and add a Tbs. of baking soda. Shake well, wait an hour and then rinse.
