Best Window Cleaning Practices
It’s not too late to get a head start on spring cleaning. Cleaning your windows is one of the simplest and most effective ways to get your home all spick and span before you can enjoy the nice weather! Whether you want to clean windows or not, following these best window cleaning practices will make sure they’re squeaky-clean and more importantly, safer for you and your family
Use distilled water instead of tap water to reduce the number of chemicals you’re using in your home. Tap water contains calcium and lime, which turn into hard white mineral deposits after they dry. These are easy to see (and sometimes difficult to remove) if you use tap water to clean your windows. Make sure the area is well ventilated. There’s nothing like a strong chemical smell wafting through your home when you’re trying to enjoy the nice weather! Open up some windows – preferably outside ones if possible – before you start cleaning so that any fumes can escape quickly. Clean one side of the window at a time. You don’t want drips or smears, especially around the edges where people may not notice them. Be sure to use an absorbent cloth when cleaning, like microfiber. This will catch the droplets before they can run down the window and leave messy streaks behind. Try using newspaper instead of paper towels or tissues, since it won’t leave linty fibers behind.
Removing Hard Stains
If you’re looking for sparkling clean windows without any hassle, be sure to use distilled water in your spray bottle for cleaner results than tap water! If you notice any tough stains or smears that are proving difficult to remove, check out this tip. Soak your cloth in a solution of one-part white vinegar and three parts distilled water. This should remove those tough stains easily, without needing any elbow grease from you! But remember clean one window at a time so you don’t get drips where they shouldn’t be! Now that you know how to clean your windows safely and effectively, you’re ready for spring of sunny, sparkling windows!
Benefits of Regular Window Washing
