Have you cleaned your windows for winter? Good for you! Cleaning your home’s windows can make your home look brighter and sunnier. It’s also a good way to identify window maintenance problems that may need to be addressed. By cleaning your windows regularly, you can make your home look better on the inside and the outside.
The cleaning product you select will make all the difference. Commercial cleaning products are readily available and usually do the job well. You can also make your own cleaning product at home. Mix 1/4 cup vinegar with two cups water, then pour in a dab of liquid dish soap. Shake the contents to mix.
Avoid cleaning your windows in direct sunlight, as sunlight can cause your window cleaning products to dry fast and make streaks on the glass. The best days to clean your windows are when it’s cool and overcast.
Before getting started, remove any loose dirt from your windows with a dry microfiber or other very soft cloth. This way, you’ll need less cleaning product and you’ll smear less dirt during the window cleaning process.
Spray your windows generously with the cleaning product, then wipe your windows with a clean microfiber or other very soft cloth. Dry your windows with a second clean, microfiber or other very soft cloth.
