Homemade Windex for living cheap
I have been looking for ways to stretch the dollar in our family and found this for homemade Windex. It works great! I added a couple drops of blue food coloring to make it look like windex. I would be interested in any other homemade solutions you all may have.

Ed’s Recipe for Homemade Windex - Makes 1 Gallon

Mix 1 cup of ammonia
1 pint of rubbing alcohol
1 tablespoon of hand dishwashing liquid (do not use more or streaking may result)
Top with with enough water to make 1 gallon

Re: Homemade Windex for living cheap
Most cleaning products use one of the two secret ingredients: Bleach, or Ammonia. You can tell which one by reading the label or by smelling it (be careful). So that's pretty much it, buy a bottle of bleach, and a bottle of ammonia. The other secret ingredient is normally water.

Hey look, a sparkly white van just pulled up out front. Oops! Gotta log off! The cleaning product company goons are coming for me!

I use fabric softener sheets to deodorize my home. Crimp up a corner, stick it in a small spot in a fan front, turn on, and blow. It lasts for a couple of days.

When the scent is almost gone, and time to put new ones in, use the old ones to dust the furniture.

Bathroom tile, especially in the tub - after cleaning, use furniture polish above the tub up the tile walls. Water sheets off, and they sparkle.

Are there gaps at the front door ? Roll paper towels and stuff. Saves on the utilities.

Bring your refrigerator temp down to medium or a little less if you can. Saves a lot on utilities.

Utility savings were my specialty:

Turn down T-stat and/or install a programmable and USE it.

Lower water heater temp to 110 degrees.

Add insulation to attic ~ 30% of heat loss/gain is through ceiling.

Install compact fluorescent lamps for lamps with heavy usage.

Weather strip all windows and doors.

Use drapes for windows to slow heat loss in hottest & coldest months.

Unplug un-used appliances and wall-warts (transformers)

Use ceiling fans, clock-wise in winter, counter-clockwise in summer.

Is that safe? I've read if you lower your tank temp too much, germs and other things can start growing in there.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 575967


The germs would have to be introduced to the tank for them to 'grow' there. Between 25-30% of typical residential energy usage occurs in water heating. The power company never forgets to send you a monthly bill. It's your choice. Bump it up to 120 degrees ~ dishwashers these days have their own booster heat, so keeping the whole tank full of 160 degree water is very wasteful. DJbigwink

Re: Homemade Windex for living cheap
Dajavoo, good tip. I do have rolled old towels, tied off at ends that I use at the door bottoms.

We have a west facing balcony that takes a lot of sun, really was heating up the living room. I put up trellis, lined it with thick dark screen. Then I put up white outdoor shades, and velcroed those windshield protectors shiny side against the shades.
It dropped the temp out there about 10 degrees. I followed inside with windshield protectors under the curtains. Again, helped cool the living room.

The room with a west window got similar treatment, including plastic taped all around. I'm putting thin sheets of white starfoam board there now. It should knock down the temp in that room.

The walls heat up too, so I'm seeking a solution for that.

almost forgot. We changed out all bulbs to the new type. Plus, in the bathroom, I put up a battery operated light.
No need to flip the switch for a one minute trip. changed out the night light in the dark hallway to a sound sensor type.

All of the things together amounted to about $25.00 savings during the winter. It should help even more in the summer.

Check these out. I'm thinking about trying a couple of sets of these. Has anyone here used them ?

I've seen them.

Best way to prevent heat gain is keep the sun off the windows with an awning. However, those curtains are a good second choice ~ there is also a film (applied to the inside of the window) that significantly reduces heat gain that you can still see through ~ it's at home improvement stores.

Honestly though, a good heavy curtain will do the same thing, if you don't mind livin' in a gloomy house.
