Cleaning with Herbs: Lemon-Mint Window Wash
By Sandy Maine
<p>Before you wash the windows, whisk away dust and dead bugs from the casing using a small, hand-held broom. For shiny windows, use sheets of newspaper (black and white only) to scrub and shine. The newspaper ink may darken your hands, but it shines the windows without streaking.</p>
<p>• Juice from one fresh lemon<br />
• 2 cups water or club soda<br />
• 1/2 teaspoon peppermint essential oil<br />
• 1 teaspoon cornstarch</p>
<p>1. Mix all ingredients and pour into plastic spray bottle.</p>
<p>2. Shake well before using.</p>
