Windows appears to be fine and superlative if they are clean. Cleaning should be done on a regular basis, at least twice a year for residential and commercial properties.

Given below are some useful techniques for cleaning a window:

  • Clean one part of a window with the horizontal strokes and the other part with the vertical strokes. By doing this, you can identify which area of the window have a streak.
  • To steer clear of streaks on a large window, employ squeegee. Situate it at the top of the window and pull down effortlessly. The trick for no streaks with the squeegee is to introduce a dry rubber blade on the dry window.
  • Use a flexible toothbrush or cotton swab in use to clean the corners.
  • To give a super shine to the window glass, polish it with the well-washed cotton T-shirts or old cloth diapers. Or else rub a clean blackboard eraser over a freshly rinsed and dried out window to furnish it a brilliant shine.
  • Polishing windows with the wrinkled newspaper will provide a luminous shine. Besides, it leaves a film which is resistant to dirt.
  • When you have to clean the soil, grease or the other debris from your window panes, use a product such as baking soda, ammonia, or washing soda.
  • Make certain that you dry out your windows in one direction only, leftwards or rightwards as mingling of the direction will not give a tidy look.
  • If you are cleaning the window sills, scrape the entire surface with a wet cloth sprayed with alcohol so that all the spots get cleared.
