How to clean windows
You can clean windows in one of two ways, by using a squeegee blade or with window cleaner and a microfiber cloth.
To clean with window cleaner and a microfiber cloth, just spray and wipe the window. If you are doing both sides of the window, wipe each side in a different direction to see where you have left the streaks at. I remember learning how to wipe windows with an old newspaper. It works great and does not leave any lint residue. Crumble it up and wipe as you would with a rag. Baby cloth diapers that have not been dried with fabric softener remove dirt and leave no streaks behind as well. But if you do not have these items, a microfiber cloth works great.
**Do not wash your microfiber cloths with fabric softener. They will leave a streak on your windows as you are washing.
If you have a squeegee blade, this is a fun tool to wipe windows with. If you are washing indoors, place a towel on the window ledge to catch drips. Using a sponge, wash the window with a solution of ½ vinegar and ½ warm water. Take the squeegee, wet the blade, then wipe from the upper corner of the window pane towards the bottom. Draw the squeegee down in a straight stroke. Return to the top and repeat, slightly overlapping the first stroke. After each stroke, wipe the squeegee off with a cloth. Finish by pulling the squeegee across the bottom of the window and dry the sill with a cloth.
Remember your cleaning method………………………Work top to bottom from left to right!!
Try the newspaper one and notice the difference in how clean your windows are.
