The mum says that after using a cloth to wipe the glass ‘your windows will be crystal clear and smear free’.
Her followers were very grateful for the ‘genius’ tip, and several added their own favourite methods to clean windows.

However, several of Carolina’s followers were not impressed with how much essential oil she uses, as some essential oils are toxic to animals.
‘Irrespective of the quality some essential oils, particularly eucalyptus oil, remain toxic to dogs as advised to us by multiple veterinarians,’ one woman said.
