Tips and Tricks for sparkling windows

Roll up those sleeves and bust out your cleaning outfit, because it’s time to make those windows sparkle! Sure, no one ever likes the job of cleaning windows, but we have great tips and tricks to help make the job worth doing. The glass in your windows does require periodic cleaning and we believe in treating your glass the same way you treat your crystal. It is very important to keep your windows in tip-top shape, so they stay looking like new. You don’t have to use the expensive, harsh window cleaner you find at the store; all you need are a few simple items you can find around the house. Not only is this more cost effective, but it’s another great way to help eliminate those harsh chemicals from your home.

List of things you will need:

  • Spray bottle
  • White vinegar
  • Liquid dish soap
  • Clean white cloth
  • Couple pages of newspaper

Ready Set Clean!

Once you have all the items gathered, you will need to create your window cleaning mixture. Now remember this doesn’t have to be perfect. Just fill the spray bottle half way with the water, add a few drops of the dish soap and fill the rest with vinegar. Once you have everything in the bottle, place the cap back on and give it a good shake. Spray each window with the cleaning solution and wipe down the pane with your white cloth. Before the window has time to fully dry, take your newspaper, wad up a handful, and use it to buff the window pane from top to bottom. This will help create those streak-free windows that everyone loves to have.
