    I pulled this recipe last summer from a google search on cleaning windows. Yes, I searched it. Anyway, this stuff works and it’s the ONLY thing that’s EVER worked on my windows. And my mirrors. And my bathroom fixtures. I even passed it on to my mom and she can’t live without it now. I forgot the recipe so I just googled Alvin Corn and voila, here it is. I hope your name for it doesn’t change – it’s quirky and easy to remember. I LOVE this stuff!!!

    Wow! Just made up a batch today and have done several windows, inside and out. It works great – as good or better than store-bought. I added a few drops each of lavender and peppermint essential oils to maximize my window cleaning enjoyment. My windows were super grimy, since I have a toddler at home with me all day. Sure enough, my fourteen month old was lurking nearby all along and licking the windows before they were barely dry, making me extra glad that I chose to wait on cleaning the windows until I could use something completely nontoxic. Thanks so much!
