Windows of the house allow you have a glance of the outside when you feel stressful or tired. But, it is not that good if you are glancing through the dirty ones.

First thing to do before start cleaning your windows is to gather all the required tools and cleaners. If you do not that, walking to and from to get your cleaners actually uses up a lot of your time.

Use the duster or the cloth to remove the dust from the windows first. Then clean the windows with the sponge. Press the sponge onto the windows vertically from top to the bottom or horizontally from left to right. Do it in a line-by-line way. When you have clean one line with the sponge, wipe clean immediately with paper towel. Repeat the process for all the windows. You may wish to pay attention to the corners as these areas are usually with more dirt built up.

If you wish to do a quick clean, you can mix 2 cups of water with 1/4 cup of vinegar and several drops of liquid soap into a spray bottle. When you clean your windows, just spray on the windows and use the cloth to rub.

Clean Windows with Alcohol

Other than vinegar and liquid soap, you can choose other window cleaning products like rubbing alcohol. Isopropyl rubbing alcohol is recommended. Pour 1/4 cups of alcohol into the water and the remaining procedures are the same as mentioned above.

Want your windows to be shinier? You can use crumpled newspaper or clean blackboard eraser to rub on the windows.

I recommend using the squeegee while doing the “s” gliding technique, and using a micro-fiber to wipe the edges so they don’t drip.
