Lightbulb Homemade frsot for windows

Saw this on another board and thought I'd pass it on even tho I haven't tried it yet.

Dissolve 4 heaping tablespoons of Epsom salts in one cup of beer. This will foam. Let set for at least 30 minutes. The salt crystals will partially dissolve.

Apply to clean window. This can be done with a 2 inch paint brush, but for a nicer effect, dip a facial tissue or terry cloth in the liquid and wipe over the window as if you were washing it. Then while the window is still wet go back and dab and pat at the glass with the wet tissue.

Mixture dries to form beautiful crystals. This looks even better the next day, and lasts a long time. It can be washed off with water and a cloth and is easily reapplied

Note - needless to say (but I'll say it anyway!) don't let pets or small children play with the mixture and don't let anyone drink it. Epsom Salts does "unfortunate things" to peoples insides!! Just read the packet and you will see what I mean! Label the jar clearly with a warning.
