It’s Saturday morning…. time to clean the windows! Want to wash away the streaks and smears? Here are our favorite tips to clean your windows just like the pros:
The most important thing you can do after installing a quality window? Have the proper tool for the job!
- Squeegee with cloth cover (available on Amazon)
- Clean quality wiping cloth
- Quality window cleaning solution
- Bucket to pour your preferred cleaning solution into
Dunk the squeegee with the wet cover or attached cleaning cloth into the bucket. Apply the cleaning solution over the entire surface of the window. Remove the wet cover or cleaning cloth from the squeegee. Working from top to bottom, draw the squeegee across the window, skimming the cleaning solution and dirt from the glass. Curve the squeegee downward at the end of each stroke. Use a fresh, clean cloth to wipe the squeegee dry after each pass across the window. Work from the top moving down to the bottom. A dry squeegee avoids drips and keeps streaks from forming. When you’re done with the squeegee, run the cleaning cloth along the “wet” side of the window to dry the drips left behind. Move to the window sill and soak up any cleaning solution. Polish the sill dry with a fresh cleaning cloth.
There you have it! Beautiful, clean, streak-free windows to enjoy! Even in the sunlight!
