Have you ever gazed out the window in your favorite chair and noticed streaks? Have you ever looked out the kitchen window and seen a web of spiders and insects covering your screens? Windows can be difficult to keep clean. Here are some tips on how to keep them clean.

Keep your inside windows clean longer:

  1. Clean around your window sills. Use the brush tool on the vacuum. Vacuum the window trimming and sills to remove dust, insects, and spiderwebs. If you have blinds, vacuum them both closed and open to collect any dust that may be trapped in between them.
  2. To clean glass, do not use paper towels. Many individuals swear by cleaning their windows with paper towels and a window cleaner. This is not a good approach to clean your windows. It is not true that less fiber is left after cleaning with paper. The ideal technique to clean your windows is with a soft towel, cloth, or sponge.
  3. Use the right cleaning solution. Using the correct cleaning solution may make a significant difference in keeping your windows clean.
  4. Use a squeegee. Instead of spraying on a glass cleaner and rubbing it over the surface to remove stains, use a double-step technique to clean your windows. Instead of spraying a glass cleaner on and pushing it around to remove the dirt, use a two-step technique to clean your windows. Use a cloth to apply and wash your cleaning solution, then a squeegee to remove it.
