"For years, I have struggled to maintain a streak-free, clean window exterior. From expensive store-bought window cleaners to simple homemade concoctions, I have tried them all, but nothing seems to bring out the shine I desire."
Mrs. Alex, 48, is just one of the several homeowners who have struggled with maintaining a streak-free exterior. And producers of household products worldwide have tried to take advantage of this genuine concern by bringing in some expensive window cleaners to the market and promoting them as essential household products. And while such windows cleaners may be deemed essentials, they are essentially non-essentials. You can still have crystal clear windows without buying an expensive window cleaner, and if you don't know how to do it, this post is for you.
Here, you will find out the best way to clean your window without needing an expensive window cleaner. So let's get started.
The Cleaning Mixture
While we claim that you do not need an expensive window cleaner, you will still need a cleaning mixture to get the shiny windows you deserve. You can easily make this cleaning mixture at home with minimal ingredients that give maximum efficiency.
- 2 cups of Water
- ¼ cup of Vinegar
- ½ tsp. Dish Soap
Many people work with water and vinegar mixture, but we suggest you add liquid detergent. Vinegar and water may be effective against dirt and dust, but dish soap is tough on stains and grease and will leave your windows sparkly clean.
You may increase the volume, depending on the number of windows you need to clean but it’s best to follow the same proportion.
How to Clean Your Windows
Here is a step-by-step guide on the best way to clean your windows.
Use a scrubber, spongeor a scrub brush to apply the cleaning mixture on your windows. Now give your window glass a nice scrub using the tool you used for applying the mixture on your window glass.
If you have a squeegee at home, that is perhaps the best tool for cleaning windows. With the help of a squeegee, you can clean your windows without having piles of paper towel or newspaper and in a fraction of time. Learn more about how to use a squeegee for window cleaning at home.
If you do not have a squeegee, don't worry. You can still give your windows the shine you love. Using a hand sprayer or a hose nozzle, wash off the cleaning mixture before it gets dry.
If you are using a squeegee, most of your cleaning is already done, but it is best to wipe out the edges using a microfiber cloth.
In case you have hand sprayed the windows, you will now need to wipe off the water using a newspaper or hand towel. Give the final touch using a microfiber rag to wipe out any remaining water on your windows.
