Glass expert shares unusual 30p kitchen ingredient that cleans windows in seconds and leaves them streak-free | The Sun

A GLASS expert has revealed how to get your windows sparkling clean in no time at all.

They revealed that an unlikely – and very affordable – kitchen ingredient can be enlisted to get the surface streak-free in seconds.

John Cutts, glass expert at, said: “It can be frustrating spending hours cleaning around the home only for streaks and fingerprints to remain on surfaces."

He added: “It’s important to understand that different types of glass objects need to be cleaned differently to get a spotless finish."

For the inside of windows, Cutts said they could be cleaned using none other than lemon juice.

He advised: "Mixing freshly squeezed lemons into water makes a scented cleaning solution to remove any marks off the windows.

"Make sure to go over it first with a microfibre cloth to clean off any dust particles."

You might be wondering how a humble lemon can help get rid of dirt – but the fruit has a number of handy properties for cleaning.

It is high in citric acid and packed with antibacterial properties, helping it easily cut through grease and grime.

To top it all off, it is a natural cleaner so you don't have to worry about over-using it around the home, and it'll leave a lovely fresh scent too.

While Cutts recommends using a regular microfibre cloth to remove dust first, you should turn to a special one for glass when wiping on the solution.

For example, this Minky M Cloth Glass & Window cloth, which costs £2.75 from Sainsbury's, is made from high-density, tightly woven microfibre which can get surfaces sparkling.

As for the lemon juice, you can save on the elbow grease and purchase a bottle for £1.25 for 500ml from Tesco or 80p for 250ml from Sainsbury's.


However, if you're trying to keep costs down, then you can always get your lemon juice the traditional way by squeezing the fruit yourself.

One lemon costs 30p from Tesco and it's the same price at Sainsbury's.
