The next time you grab a copy of your local newspaper, look for the official Soy Ink seal. If your paper is printed with soy ink, it is your best choice for cleaning windows. Some newspapers use petroleum-based ink, and that type of ink tends to run, smear and make a mess of your windows.
The Bottom Line
If you have access to newspaper printed with soy ink, this is the best medium for window cleaning. If not, use stiffer, less expensive paper towels that won’t leave lint behind.
