Cleaning windows can be tricky. The national best sellers are expensive and very toxic and they don't work perfectly. Would you be surprised to learn that the giant corporations that make window cleaner have a trick up their sleeves? They put ingredients in there to make it streak just a little bit. Why would they do that. Because what do you do when you get a streak. You spray more and wipe again. They sell more if it streaks just a little. Imagine if there was a non toxic window cleaner that worked perfectly with no streaks.
Now there is a non toxic window cleaner that never streaks.
And you might be surprised to learn about a non toxic window cleaner that is made from a berry that grows on trees. Soap nuts are the fruit of the Chinese Soap Berry Tree. We made a liquid from these incredible berries. Soap Nuts Liquid is primarily made as a totally non-toxic, hypoallergenic laundry detergent that cost much less than Tide. It is the best laundry detergent you can buy. But if you dilute Green Virgin Products Soap Nuts Liquid, 50 parts water and 1 part soap nuts liquid, it makes an astonishing light duty cleaner and the best non toxic window cleaner you will ever use. It never streaks. The only ingredients in it are soap nuts, water, and two totally non-toxic preservatives. It doesn't get any less toxic or any more eco-friendly than that. This is a completely non toxic window cleaner.
Besides being a non toxic window cleaner, it is also a non toxic car wash and light duty all around cleaner for the home.
