Newspaper Clean Windows

I've heard of people using newspaper instead of paper towels before, but dismissed it because I don't get a newspaper, and I don't know, I thought the ink would smear on my windows. Well, after actually looking into it a little, I was suprised about how many people rave about it. So, although I didn't try it (because I still don't get a newspaper, and honestly I don't like cleaning my windows) I DID see a recipe to use with the newspaper, and it works farrrr better than my dollar store junk I buy.

2cups of water
1/4 cup of white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp liquid soap

Works best in a squirt bottle. Or the thing said you could even dip the edge of your newspaper into the solution and clean your windows that way. One thing I did not expect, when you use newspaper, the ink in it has anti glare properties to it. But I still have not tried it myself. But if I got a newspaper, I'd use that. It saves money (or maybe it at least makes up for the price of the newspaper) and from what everyone who has tried it says :it works better!
