Cleaning windows is not on the top of the things I love doing list. It can be tedious and if you aren’t using the proper window cleaning strategy, it can be frustrating when your windows aren’t sparkling and streak-free. Clean, bright and shiny windows can be accomplished when you use the right products and strategy. I’m not saying it will be on your all time favorite things to do list but it is easier than you think to achieve the sparkling windows you so desire.
5 Tips for Sparkling Streak-Free Windows
Clean your windows during a time of the day the windows aren’t getting direct sun. The sun can cause your cleaning solution to dry before you wipe it off, which can cause spots. Cleaning on a cloudy day works best.
Wipe off any dust or debris with a dry cloth before apply your wet cloth. Water + Dust = Mess. You don’t want to add additional work to this task so make sure you wipe all the dust and cobwebs off the windows before cleaning. I’ve even used my vacuum attachments first if the windows are really dirty.
Use your favorite Windex® cleaner on your windows and then wipe with newspaper or paper towel. Newspapers are a cheap and easy way to get a streak-free clean. Change your newspapers as needed.
If you are cleaning a large window or glass door, either move fast or section your window into four section. Start at the top left and work your way over and down.
Protect Windowsills and Floors
To protect your windowsills and floors from a mess, place a old towel along the windowsill to catch any drips you may have while you are cleaning.
You will probably never love window cleaning but with these tips you will love the look of your sparkling clean and crystal clear windows!
