Don’t take yesterday’s newspapers to the recycling bin just yet. Their texture is ideal for cleaning glass. In fact, they do a much better job than paper towels, which can leave lint behind. Lightly squirt a 50-50 vinegar-and-water solution onto windows, crumple up black-and-white newspaper into a wad, and wipe your windows to a bright shine. This method also works wonders on curio cabinets and glass tabletops.
