Normally we clean rooms in the houses but put filthy windows for later. You know how much time it will take and give up even before you start. But this desire to see a clear blue sky through clean windows is strong and natural, that is why you finally decide to take care of your windows. Well, it’s time to connect with the world and have a clean look through those windows.
Now we are going to speak about the best and most efficient techniques to washing windows.
How to get rid of streaks
This is the most disappointing thing about windows cleaning. You wash and scrub and repeat it many times but the windows remain streaky despite all the hard work. But, in fact, it’s not hard to prevent streaks, you just need some practice and knowledge.
Streaks are created by residue from detergents. It often happens when you wash windows on a sunny hot day when the water evaporates quickly. It may also happen if you don’t remove all the water from the glass. An ordinary towel is far from perfect for this task, it’s not absorbent enough. So, it’s best to start cleaning on a winter or cool autumn day and make use of a microfiber kitchen cloth. You will also need a squeegee with a rubber blade, a bucket with warm water and soapy solution. Do not also forget to protect the floors with a big towel.
Remove dirt and dust
First of all, you should get rid of the dust and dirt that has accumulated on the glass. Use a vacuum-cleaner for the inner side of the windows, corners and frames. The exterior of the windows is to be cleaned with a sponge and warm solution with a small portion of dish detergent.
The best tool to remove excessive water from the glass is a squeegee. It’s the main secret of a streaks-free window. Do not use much water and use towels to prevent the squeegee from dripping water all over the window.
Use a teaspoon of dishwashing liquid for a bucket of water to make the solution or replace it with a special product bought in a supermarket.
Use a sponge to apply the solution to the window but don’t make the glass and the frames too wet. Use a damp squeegee with a sharp blade (it’s crucial) to remove excess water from the glass. Blades should regularly changed so prepare some for replacement.
Excess moisture can be wiped off with an absorbent microfiber towel. Voila! It seems you can enjoy a sparkling window now and the view outside with a glass of tasty wine!
