Simple Tips and Tricks for Water Spot Removal On Windows

When we talk about autumn and winter the constant is always and only one, rain! We have to prepare for several days when it rains nonstop, hoping that it is almost always a clean rain that does not force us to clean the balcony from top to bottom. One thing is for sure, we must always be very careful with our windows because they can get rain-encrusted. In fact, today I’m going to tell you all about how to make anti-drip glass cleaner for windows when it rains outside!


The first thing we need to do is to get all the necessary ingredients for our cheap and effective trick! Let’s see in detail what you will need:

  • 2 tablespoons of corn-starch
  • ½ cup of white vinegar (if you have another type at home, you can safely use it)
  • ½ cup of water (preferably demineralized)
  • Juice of 1 lemon

As you can see, we are talking about ingredients that first and foremost we can find in the home, but which are particularly suitable for cleaning windows. Vinegar, in fact, is often used to have a no-rinse solution for window frames or mirrors! The corn-starch, on the other hand, will create that anti-drip state that will not overly dirty the glass, and the lemon juice will enhance the action of the vinegar and give our natural product a fantastic scent!


First, I recommend that you dissolve the corn-starch in the water thoroughly by pouring it a little at a time and with the help of a strainer. It is important, in fact, that no lumps form. Then add the vinegar and the well-filtered lemon juice. When you have obtained a single solution, all you have to do is pour everything into a vaporizer. Shake well so that all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly and there you have it, your glass cleaner is ready! All you will have to do is spray it on the glass and wipe it directly with a dry cotton cloth. In fact, such a product is rinse-free.

Other anti-drip methods

In addition to the one we have just seen, there are also other anti-drip methods that can help you to prevent rainwater from excessively soiling the glass. Let’s look at some of these very interesting tricks:

  • Half a potato:

this might sound strange and is actually a fantastic remedy! You will have to cut a potato in half and pass it all over the glass, this will create a coating that will make the drops slide off. You can use this trick even before taking a shower!

  • Newspaper sheets:

an old Grandmother’s remedy still much loved and used today. You will need to swipe the sheet over all the drops to absorb them effectively without leaving halos.

  • Talcum powder:

great for perfuming and making windows shiny again, you’ll need to mix 1 tablespoon of product in 3 cups of water and you’ll have an excellent glass cleaner in any case and without rinsing!

  • Yellow soap:

method to use when the windows have become excessively dirty. Spread a small ball of product on a soft sponge and wipe over the glass, then rinse and dry with a cotton cloth.


We recommend trying the indicated remedies first on an inconspicuous corner. This will ensure that they can be with your glass type.
