I don’t know about you but this damp Spring weather and wind has really taken a toll on my windows. Now that the sunshine is out this morning I can really notice just how much my windows need washed. Below are some helpful tips to help you get your windows clean:
- Always try and wash your windows an a cloudy or overcast day. Washing windows in the direct sunlight can be hard because the cleaning solution will try and leave streaks.
- Believe it or not cool clear water is the window cleaning solution of most professionals. If you windows are really dirty you can add in 2 to 3 tablespoons of vinegar per gallon of water to make an effective cleaning solution.
- Use horizontal strokes on the inside of the windows and then vertical strokes on the outside. The differing strokes will make it easier to see which side of the window may or may not have streaks.
- Crumpled newspaper works great for cleaning windows and does not leave behind the lint that paper towels often do.
