Through the Kitchen Glass, Brightly.

  1. Hmmmm,if you need to clean your kitchen window to make it really bright did you know you can use old scrunched up newspapers - for some reason they work really well.

  2. : > ) Would it be bridge too far to add that vinegar also has a role to play in obtaining the best window cleaning outcome. This is what I do - In a spray bottle, mix 50% distilled vinegar (white) and 50% tap water. For extremely grimy glass, prewash with very soapy water, then go to the vinegar spray.

    It is a well known fact that really, really bright photographs are possible if taken through very, very clean windows?

  3. Hi kate been busy? For the best result on old glass: use Cerium oxide paste. It is a professionally used material to polish glass to get rid of all corrosion and (light) scratches on window panes.

  4. I have been busy Ben! I am slowly catching up on all my correspondence and chores…
    Thanks for the tip. Where would I find that substance? The previous owners sprayed something harsh (for siders, he said, but he was a chemist and I think it was something else) and my windows have spots that have been there for 22 years despite my efforts with newspaper, vinegar and mentholated spirits…
