Window Care

window1CLEAN windows contribute to give a home a relaxing air. Glass windows, oftentimes may not look clean even when they have been cleaned obviously because the right method has not been employed. Here are some tips provided by home improvement managers.

Windows should not be washed while the sun is shining on them because they dry quickly and leave streaks.

When polishing windows, use up and down strokes on one side of the window and side-to-side strokes on the other to tell which side requites extra polishing.

To polish windows or mirrors to a sparkling shine, try a natural linen towel or other soft cloth, a clean, damp cloth or crumpled newspaper. A note of warning is that newspaper does leave glass lint-free with a dirt-resistant film, so persons with sensitivities to fumes from newsprint may wish to avoid the use of newspaper as a cleaning tool.

Here are some mixtures that can be used to clean glass and windows.

WindowVinegar: Wash windows or glass with a mixture of equal parts of white vinegar and warm water. Dry with a soft cloth. This leaves windows and glass with no streak. To remove those stubborn hard water sprinkler spots and streaks, use undiluted vinegar.

Borax or washing soda: Two tablespoons of borax or washing soda mixed into three cups water makes a good window cleaner. Apply to surface and wipe.

Baking soda: To clean cut glass, sprinkle baking soda on a damp rag and clean glass. Rinse with clean water and polish with a soft cloth.
