Making Your Home Shine

Nowadays when I use a product that's new to me and it makes me go "Wow!", I feel like it's my duty to share it with you. I could just hoard the info to myself, hugging it to my chest and calling it "my Preciousssss", but that just doesn't seem quite fair, does it?

Sometimes these products are fun and interesting, and sometimes they're necessary evils...but ones that make our lives easier in some way. This one is in the latter category, since washing windows and cleaning glass is one of my least favorite things.

Recently Hubby and I were at our local home improvement store and while he was in the chainsaw department (bor-ing!) I was cruising the aisles looking for something -- anything -- to keep me from going stark raving mad. (That's probably the same way Hubby feels when he goes into a fabric store with me.)

Anyway, I picked up a can of window cleaner that I'd never seen before called "SprayWay". It looked like something a pro would use, rather than a meek and mild housewife like myself (insert evil laugh here), and I decided to take some home and give it a try.

At first I was just using it on my glass tabletops and was surprised at how fine and "dry" the spray seemed. But it wiped off quicker and cleaner, leaving absolutely no streaks, and I was impressed. It was MUCH better than Windex or other glass cleaners that I've used in the past.

Today I was using it to clean off our kitchen table and noticed that the windows in the dining area looked really cloudy. No big surprise ... we've been so busy since moving into our new house that cleaning windows has been pretty low on our priority list. So I grabbed an extra paper towel, let out a big sigh, and started to clean one of the windows.

That doggone window cleaned up so quickly and easily, so I moved to the next window, and the next. I know, it doesn't sound like me at all, does it? If my daughter were here, she'd be feeling my forehead and insisting that I go lie down. 

So if you can find some of this glass cleaner at a local store, pick some up and give it a try. If you can't find it locally, it's easy enough to order online; just click on the photo above.

I've read that it works really well on your car's windshield and windows, so that's my next cleaning project. That truck of ours is really becoming an embarrassment; one of the pitfalls of living on a dirt road.



  1. Hi Pam... Guess what, my hubby is in the automotive industry and uses that same stuff all the time. He probably has a whole case out in the garage as we speak..it smells good too, don't you think..


  2. My house is FULL of BIG windows! I'm so going to find this or order it online~Thanks, cause I really don't like cleaning windows either, or bathrooms (I pay my daughter to clean the bathrooms!) :) Maybe I can get her to do the windows, yeah that's the ticket! HA HA!

  3. Hmm..interesting. Does it repel five year olds fingerprints too??? Katie

  4. our windows could use a good cleaning too..and we too live on a dirt road so our cars look like pooh.afraid to wash them..cause it might be the only thing holding them together.;)

  5. I hope it'll work on the bathroom mirrors, nothing screams STREAKS more than shower fog! And hey, if it'll clean car windows, I'll buy a case myself. I can't get the streaks off my windshield to save my life... I wipe, and wipe, more streaks. I'll be getting some of this 2-ma-row.

  6. Oh I so need this! I despise Windex - and have resorted to the ol vinegar and/or ammonia and water routine - and still not happy. Let the hunt begin! Thanks for sharing this tip!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  7. I'm gonna have to find me some of this window cleaner. I HATE Windex. Thanks for sharing this with us.


  8. We use it in our cutom framing dept in our shop. GREAT glass cleaner.
