How to get your windows gleaming inside and out.
Many people clean their homes on a weekly basis and most offices are cleaned on a daily basis.
However, when was the last time the windows were cleaned? Inside and out?
Domestic windows tend to get cleaned when they look dirty rather than according to a cleaning schedule and yet windows are important – they provide light for your home or office.
The path of least hassle for cleaning the insides of the windows is to clean them with window and glass cleaner, wipe with a clean, soft cloth which is not going to leave smears or fibres on the glass.
Alternatively, you can use hot water and washing up liquid to cut through the dirt and then use a scrunched up newspaper or an old t-shirt to polish the glass.
However, to clean the outside, which may be dirtier, with watermarks from rain, gifts from the birds and general smears, window and glass cleaner may not be enough.
To avoid smears, the best solution is one part hot water to one part distilled vinegar. Alternatively, you can use lemon juice instead of vinegar as it works in more or less the same way but smells better.
Using a sponge, apply the water to the window and clean or alternatively use a squeegee to clean the window from top to bottom, wiping the blade after each stroke.
Then rinse the window with clean water and dry using chamois leather, microfiber cloth or scrunched up newspaper.
Don’t forget to clean the windowsills as well – your shiny windows will be put to shame if the windowsills are grubby.
