Steps to Make Your Window Sparkle
Before wiping down your windows, try these steps to make your windows clean and bright while saving time and money.
Clean from Top to Bottom
Cleaning from top to bottom ensures that the cleaning solution won’t drip down while you work. This will help to avoid streaks and drip marks on your windows.
Wash Your Windows on a Cloudy Day
You may be thinking, “How will I see the dirt if it’s a cloudy day?” However, the sun can dry your cleaning solution before you’ve had time to properly wipe your windows down, leaving streaks and smudges.
Use a Squeegee
The squeegee can be an important tool for removing streaks. If you’ve noticed that your wipe isn’t removing all of the cleaning solutions, simply use the squeegee for an effortless, unstreaked finish.
Clean Corners with Cotton Swabs
If you thought cotton swabs were only meant for cleaning ears, you may be surprised to learn that they make it easy to clean those hard to reach areas on your windows. You will find that these cotton swabs are the perfect size for those tiny corners that have been collecting dust all along!
