Cleaning the windows on your home doesn’t bring a whole lot of excitement but it also doesn’t need to be as tedious as it seems. There are a number of ways to make the process not only easier, but also faster – while at the same time, making sure the clear glass lasts longer. You want to make sure you put a good amount of effort in to the cleaning process, but you also want to keep the environment safe and secure, particularly if you have pets and children.
Here are 4 Great Tips For Easy Window Cleaning:
1. Use natural products. Vinegar works wonders on so many levels when it comes to cleaning. Mix up a little bit of vinegar with water and add a few drops of detergent. Get your gloves on and start cleaning. Vinegar is great for getting rid of stains on your windows. Baking Soda is another great option that won’t affect anyone’s health – add a bit to your water and it will not only clean your windows, but it will leave your home smelling fresh as well.
2. Do it when the sun goes down. Or at least when the sun isn’t shining on your windows! If you clean your windows in direct sunlight, you risk leaving watermarks because the sun will heat the glass faster than you can clean. If you have no choice, consider putting up a tarp outside the window for the duration of your cleaning.
3. Cloths vs newspapers. If you want to use cloths, make sure you have three handy. One is used to wash the windows, one to dry the windows and another to polish them. Using a microfiber cloth will help to remove any streaks left over from the drying process, or another sure bet is the trusty newspaper. They not only absorb water well, but they won’t leave marks or scratches on your window.
4. Get a professional window cleaner in to do the work for you. There are actually numerous benefits to getting someone else to do the work. They are more experienced and know what they’re doing so the quality of the clean is going to be better (they’re getting paid to do it perfect, after all); they will do the work much faster than you would because they won’t have distractions, won’t procrastinate and again – they’re getting paid to do it! And you’ll save time – and that’s time that you could be spending doing other things, like playing with the kids, catching up on your favorite TV show or shopping!
