Windows Looking Dirty? These 5 Simple How to Clean Glass Tips Will Help!
People reading this article from the United States are currently smack dab in the middle of the summer. That means that until Fall rolls around on September 23rd, you’re probably going to be spending a lot of time indoors to escape the heat.
The more time that you spend inside, the more likely that you are to notice little flaws that exist around your house. The flaw that we think you’re going to pick out the quickest is how dirty your windows are.
We understand the struggle. You’ve got a lot to do. You work for a living. Who has the time to be wiping down windows?
With that said, dirty windows make your house look grubby. Once you understand how to clean glass, getting your windows to sparkle is simple.
Here are a few cleaning tips to get you on your way!
1. Use a Scrubber Or Two
Don’t spray some water on your windows, wipe it off with a paper towel and call it a day. Your windows deserve better than that!
There window scrubbers/squeegees that do a fantastic job of making your windows ultra-clean.
Soak your scrubber in a cleaning solution, wash your window’s surface, and squeegee dry.
Also, try to use separate scrubbers for the inside and outside of your window to avoid cross-contamination.
2. Vinegar is the Naturalist’s Choice
Vinegar might smell a bit strong but that strong smell is indicative of its incredible cleaning power. Vinegar cleans as well as a lot of soaps that we’ve tested.
If you want your windows wiped down with eco-friendly cleaners, soak your scrubber in vinegar and you’re ready to go!
3. Dish Soap Works Too
Not so concerned about eco-stuff? That’s fine. We won’t judge.
Go ahead and soak your scrubber in water and liquid dish soap. Then, wash and squeegee the water off.
Liquid dish soap is a glass cleaning favorite because it doesn’t cause damage and it does a fantastic job breaking down built-up dirt.
4. Clean on Overcast Days
If you clean glass when the sun is out, you’ll get unsightly water spots. These spots might look almost as annoying as a dirty window.
Fortunately, avoiding sunspots is easy.
Just save your window cleaning for an overcast day and be sure to squeegee your windows dry post-washing.
5. Dust Before Washing
If you’ve got really dirty windows, scrubbing over the dirt could end up smearing your mess around and might even cause your glass to get scratched which could lead to needing replacement windows. To side-step that fate, dust off your windows before subjecting them to scrubbing.
A good dusting will fling away debris and will make your glass cleaning efforts safer and easier.
