Here's a rundown on how to get those windows sparkling:

Supplies you'll need:

  • Bucket or spray bottle
  • Clean microfiber cloths (or lint-free cloths)
  • Squeegee (optional)
  • Dish soap (or white vinegar)

Making your cleaning solution:

  • DIY solution: Mix a few drops of dish soap into a bucket of cool water. White vinegar diluted with water (equal parts) is another option.
  • Commercial cleaner: You can also use a store-bought window cleaning solution.

Cleaning the windows:

  1. Prep the area: Lay down a towel beneath the window to catch drips.
  2. Loose dirt removal: For both the inside and outside of the window, use a damp microfiber cloth to wipe away any loose dirt or cobwebs.
  3. Cleaning solution application:
    • For the DIY solution, dampen your microfiber cloth and wipe the window clean.
    • If using a spray bottle, mist the window with your cleaning solution and wipe it down with the microfiber cloth.
  4. Squeegee (optional): If you're using a squeegee, start at the top of the window and pull downwards, applying light pressure, to remove excess cleaning solution and water. Wipe the squeegee blade after each stroke with your dry microfiber cloth.
  5. Drying and buffing: Use a clean, dry microfiber cloth to buff the window dry and eliminate any streaks.

Pro tips:

  • Cloudy or overcast days are ideal: Avoid cleaning windows in direct sunlight, as the solution can dry too quickly and leave streaks.
  • Work in sections: Clean the window in sections to ensure you don't miss any spots.
  • Clean window tracks: Don't forget to wipe down the window tracks to remove any built-up grime.

With these tips, your windows will be shining bright in no time!
