Fresh Lemon Juice & Club Soda

Here’s a goody sent in by Amanda:

This recipe is for cleaning windows and glass that I’ve used for years, it brings a nice sparkle & shine so I love it! Only a few ingredients are needed:

  • 3 TBS lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 2 cups club soda (you can use water too or a mix of water and club soda but I prefer 100% club soda)
  • 1 tsp cornstarch

Pour everything into a spray bottle then shake well before using.

Thanks so much for sharing Amanda!
