Remove All Drapes!

Start by taking this opportunity to take out any blinds or curtains and putting them away for a thorough wash. Make sure to dust them off with a dry brush or vacuum to sweep any spider webs or dust that may have been stuck to the windowsills.

Dust Away The Dirt First!

Use a microfiber duster, or vacuum the debris with the machines dusting attachment to avoid making a muddy mess when a cleaner is sprayed onto the window.

If your window’s screen looks grubby, pop it out and wash it with warm, running water and a brush, and keep it away in a clean place for drying.

Use Eco-Friendly Cleaning Solutions!

Chemical-based cleaning solutions contain toxins that are hazardous to the environment and pose a health risk to humans. Try to use an old cotton t-shirt, non-abrasive squeegees, or a linen cloth with warm, soapy water with a dash of detergent for cleaning delicate panes without scratching the glass, but chances are you’ll leave residue from soapy suds behind, especially if you’re not a professional.

Another way to clean windows is to use environmentally friendly vinegar and water solution. Mixing one-part vinegar with a cup of water is cost-effective, and spraying it on the window’s surface can make them sparkle!

Some people also prefer using lemons, mainly to avoid vinegar’s smell, but make sure the pulp or lemon juice doesn’t cause streaks on the glass. Try using distilled water, as minerals present in standard water can leave unsightly water stains behind once it dries.

Leave It on The Pros!
